“When I am ….. completely myself, entirely alone… or during the night when I cannot sleep, it is on such occasions that my ideas flow best and most abundantly. Whence and how these ideas come I know not nor can I force them.”
— Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Today’s Journal Prompts:
My ideas flow best when I am..
My ideas flow best during…
My worse creative times of day / week are…
Tip: start keeping track in your journal of your best / worst creative flows.
This helps us become aware of our patterns.
And there is so much power in knowing our creative patterns, that it’s worth a whole chapter of discovery in the 7 Creative Powers workshop.
P.S. I’m writing this at 4:44 am, after being up for several hours during the night, not sleeping.
Let’s say you DO happen to be up all night. Perhaps jet-lagged while traveling.
The Art of Being More YOU
If you’re at all like me, you had big creative yearnings before they took recognizable form.
I want to help you find form for your creative longings. Absolutely no art or writing experience is required.
You, too, can create freely in your own beautiful style.
When we create freely, whole new worlds of possibility open up for us. In ways we cannot plan or expect.
Dreaming On Paper helps you excavate your own true desires, innate wisdom, and intuition, with ease, gentleness and joy.
This workshop is one of the foundational, prerequisite courses for the facilitator training.
Right now you can get Dreaming on Paper at a nice discount with Bundle Up special over on my workshops page. This offer expires July 31.
Every once in a while, I do something really crazy with pricing, and this is an example.

In A Manifesto for the Hesitant Dreamer I share more about what Dreaming on Paper is all about, and what we do.
Why bother keeping an art journal or sketchbook? Yeah, I used to ask myself that from time to time, too.
