  9. 9. The Artist Date (Julia Cameron): is a block of time, perhaps 2 hours weekly, especially set aside for only YOU when you are committed to nurturing your creative consciousness, your inner artist. I have a list printed for ideas. Change your environment – get out of your normal routine Hang out in places where other creative people hang out – NewBo, art museum, coffee shop, library, college campus – someplace with a creative vibe. Try something that challenges you – or that you are afraid of Follow people/subject on social media Learn and experience different cultures – attend a different place of worship, go to an ethnic restaurant Talk to people – young, old, strangers, friends/family, different ethnic groups, different professions Morning Pages: Writing “Morning pages” as described in the Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron is a way to map our own interior. 3 full pages (one sided) the first thing in the morning to get the random thoughts out of your head and onto paper. If you roll out of bed and onto the paper, you evade your “censor”. Do not judge yourself – the writing can be a stream of consciousness – not topic related, not published, not solution based – just pure thought. With morning pages, we become “explorers rather than tourists”
