So I started reading The War of Art by Steven Pressfield yesterday over lunch.
I owe those of you who recommended it a big thank you. It’s definitely the kick I need, and I’d recommend it if you feel “stuck” in how to pursue a creative project, dream job, new business venture, or even personal wellness in spirit, health and your relationships.
Of course, it’s ironic that when I started reading, I also began my own form of procrastination (defined as Resistance in the book): I decided it was time to sign up on Facebook. I’d been thinking about joining for a few months as a way to increase my blog readership, network with other writers and to reconnect with family and friends. After viewing one too many MySpace profiles that were so loud they made me want to put a spike through my head —not that yours would be obnoxious, dear readers…profiles or spikes— I decided to try this. I’ve already spent way too much time trying to set up my profile and stuff.
Yeah, resistance all right.
So now I need to get back to my synopsis. Just after I eat dinner…
