the artist's way collective: how it works

August 11, 2008 | Leave a comment

I’m pleased with the response so far for The Artist’s Way Collective. We have participants from five states and two continents so far. With three weeks to go before we start, there is still plenty of time to join us. You can read the Intro post for more information.

The structure I have in mind is simple. We will work on a new section each week; I suggest you read the section on Sunday or Monday. Early on Monday, I will post a hub for that week. It will act as a reminder for the section we are on that week, but also as a collecting point for everyone’s thoughts.

As you work through the material for the week, share some of your own reflections on what you are experiencing and learning. You can post these as comments on the hub post. Or, if you have a blog of your own, post them on your blog and share a link to them in the hub comments. (If you want to start a blog just for this purpose, I would recommend WordPress.com.)

I see no need to be rigid with this structure, so if we rework it during the process…well, that just sounds like creativity in action to me. I would also encourage the participants, and anyone else, to be reading and responding to the insights of others.

If you already have your book, take some time to read the introductory chapters up to Week 1. (That’s up to page 24 in the latest edition of the book.) They will help you get a handle on what is to come. As always, if you have any questions, please let me know. And once again, if you are going to join us, please consider a post on your own blog about it to help spread the word and let others know what is up.
