I have the following poster by Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy framed and hanging in my office.
I don’t care if you are a writer, CEO, lawyer or garbage collector; SARK’s advice in this collection isn’t lost on any of us.
I hope your writing, creative or otherwise, is going well for you today.
HOW TO BE AN ARTIST
Learn to watch snails.
Plant impossible gardens.
Invite someone dangerous to tea.
Make little signs that say Yes! And post them all over your house.
Make friends with Freedom and uncertainty.
Look forward to dreams.
Cry during movies.
Swing as high as you can on a swing set, by moonlight.
Refuse to “be responsible.”
Do it for love.
Take lots of naps.
Give money away. Do it now. The money will follow.
Believe in magic. Laugh a lot.
Celebrate every gorgeous moment. Take moonbaths.
Have wild imaginings, transformative dreams, and perfect calm.
Draw on the walls. Read every day. Imagine yourself magic.
Giggle with children. Listen to old people. Open up. Dive in. Be free. Bless yourself. Drive away fear. Play with everything. Entertain your inner child. You are innocent. Build a fort with blankets. Get wet. Hug trees.
Write love letters.
