Every Field Must Lay Fallow

Maybe you are in the middle of a dry spell so severe your lips are parched.

I’m sorry. I know that feeling — that sinking, empty, aching feeling — and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone.

But I know that eventually it will end. And you will live through it. I’m sorry I can’t say how long “eventually” will be, but I do know that you will get your mojo back.

You are an artist.

And sometimes artists endure extended periods during which it seems as if nothing’s happening.

There's No Such Thing as a Single-Disciplinary Artist

I’ve never met a single-discipline artist.

Every creative person I know says things like, “Well, I’m a writer. But I also sing in a choir and play bass guitar and drums and embroider and do needlepoint but I don’t do counted cross-stitch anymore and of course everyone in my family loves to cook and did I mention that I also clog dance?”

Like I said, you’re good at a lot of things.

And then there ’s the artistry that you bring to your everyday life.
