I also wish you a Happy Thanksgiving!!

BTW-I too, have the Artist's Way. Only have done the first chapter...But I have intentions to go back to it. Life got in the way...but the book is always in the back of my mind. And it is NOT sitting on a bookshelf, but in plain view, patiently waiting for me.

As far as other things that inspire me, that bring creativity back into focus and are postive....
That would be...

Thanks, Terri and the best to you.

Michele, that's a lovely compliment and something *I* can be thankful for this day. I am Thankful for all my readers.

The Artist's Way is great...I did it twice. It seemed a little hard for me to do all at once, so I did a week once a month. The "no reading" week (and I would assume that meant blogs and internet stuff, too!) was a killer.

The week a month thing really helped , and though I loathed them, so did the morning pages.

Take care,
