Episode 15 – Narratives and Creativity Part 1: Everyday Narratives
The gateway meat to introspection. Or something.
This episode marks a new four-ish part series on narratives, what they are, how they affect our ability to start or maintain our creative practice, and what you can do to change those narratives that are not so helpful. We start with everyday narratives because those are the low hanging fruit of introspection, the gateway fruit-meat of your inner journey, if you will. Come along for the ride and, who knows, maybe you'll add another tool or two to your toolkit for building the creative practice you want.
Links: It's Not About The Money by Brent Kessel A fantastic page from Byron Katie about doing that introspective work (the Questions section is what we reference in this episode) Art & Fear: Observations on the Perils (and Rewards) of Artmaking by David Bayles and Ted Orland (review) - This is a nice companion piece to this episode. If you can get a copy of this book, we highly recommend it.
