Several years ago while working as a potter, I read the book The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Or perhaps it was another book by her. She was talking about how to keep being productive when you're self-employed, or how to keep producing things if you're a writer, or artist or something else. One of the points she raises in this book has always stuck with me. She called it Filling in the forms. Basically, you have to show up for work every day and just stick it out even when it's not too exciting. That's what today has been like. I've been plodding away for 7 hours now without a whole lot to show for it. And I'm not done yet. Some days I end up with a beautiful finished object, and other days I just have more numbers filled in onto pages.
However, Yesterday I had an exciting afternoon! I had quite a large gift card from Christmas that I was thinking about using for a camera. So I went to London Drugs and just asked the salesman in the photo section about what camera he would recommend as the best buy for the money. It was quite interesting to go camera shopping and ask questions about it.
Now, I need to learn how to use it.
