Probably some of you are familiar with Julia Cameron. She has written many books including The Artists Way.
Lately I've been making my way slowly through her book -The Writing Diet: Write Yourself Right-Size.
In the book she speaks of her belief that people often overeat when they are procrastinating in doing something creative.
I buy this to a certain extent.
I have also read that artists are artists because they have something to say. I don't mean necessarily in words, sometimes in paint stokes, musical notes, etc, etc, etc.
I also buy that to a certain extent.
Julia advises journaling and writing morning pages.
The question I have is - is there value in being an artist - in saying what you have to say - if no one is listening?
If I know that I can finish a book, write a journal page, write out my feelings in the morning, but no one witnesses these things - is there value in this?
