How Do You Recharge Your Creative Batteries?

How Do You Recharge Your Creative Batteries?

We juggle blogging four posts a day for AT with a day job, a couple of other freelance gigs, a very active social life and other assorted and sundry projects. Needless to say, we get very little sleep so we're looking forward to sleeping in over the long weekend. But we're also looking forward to it for other reasons...

Oh, we'll probably do a bunch of projects We've been meaning to get to around the house but, almost more importantly, we'll probably take ourself on a couple of dates. We'll hit a couple of museum exhibits and galleries, we'll explore a couple of neighborhoods we've been meaning to poke around in and we're planning to stop in at a few stores in our neighborhood that have recently sprung up. And we'll -- that is I'll --do it alone, without the company of friends or family. It's an old trick, courtesy of Julia Cameron's classic The Artist's Way, that really works to help us fill our creative well and find our way back to an abundance of ideas that we can share with you. How do you fill up when you're running on empty?
