Advent 2011, Day 4: Chapter 11 Check In

Today we visited the annual neighbourhood fair. It has craft stalls around the park and international food stalls in the middle.

OK, my girlies, time to Check In with your Artist´s Way stories. I know December is quite a hectic, emotional month and slipping on our pages & tasks sound reeeeeeeaaaaallly tempting because "we don´t have time for this". Hang in there! We are close to the final Check In!!! We´ve done so much so far. Give yourself a hug and a little private space to work.
1) Morning pages.
All around the world people are saying things like "I´ll be much calmer this Christmas season and focus on what is important". Others are saying "If she dares even looking at me I will happily wring her neck. No way I´ll spend Christmas with her!". Whichever group you belong to, this is the time to run to your journals and write!
2) Artist´s date
See any cool decorations lately? At a home/school/office/shop? Tell us about it!
3) The tasks
Choose one, keep it close to your heart. Take it to work with you. Take it grocery shopping with you. Doodle it. Hum it. Write it. Draw it. Give it your loving attention. It will take you places.

How to share with MrLinky: you type in your name in the first box (the way you´d introduce yourself) and then the url/link to your post (not your whole blog url) where you share your work with the current chapter. When you come back next week your name will likely automatically be entered but you need to redo or paste over the url/link with your new post's address.

I am definitely going to take myself on a Christmas Artist's Date this week. I am not sure where or when but I am going to do that for myself and let you know how it turns out later in the week. Have a great week.

I've been traveling and had house guests. Had the best of intentions, but...I've fallen behind with Chapter 11. Hope to catch up soon - we are so close to the end!

This is so much fun what you're doing. :) I have the book but haven't read it yet. It's on my to-do list. :) Hang in there!

AHA! I woke at 1 am and worked until 4:30 am this morning on Chapter 11, and managed to complete it! YAY!

On to chapter 12. Can't believe it is the final chapter.

Anyone interested in doing Walking in This World next? It is the sequel to The Artist's Way. A friend just gave me a copy of it.
