Today was the first day I started the routine prescribed by THE ARTIST’S WAY. The bulk of it is waking up and writing several uncensored pages every morning. 

Today I wrote about the difference between the feeling of waking up and going to a day job, and waking up to a day of self-directed creative work. Having a self-directed day for creativity reminds me of what it felt like when I was in elementary school and a teacher would give me a book and send me to a desk in the back of the room or out in the hall to teach myself because I was ahead anyway. It’s freedom, if a little lonely.

Another response to postmodernist art theory: I’ve also been reading a lot about anarchism lately, and so I took the anarchist ‘slogan’ “NO GODS, NO MASTERS” and changed it to fit with the idea that, after postmodernism, the artist-as-creative-genius trope was totally abolished. 


you’re right, all we’ve got left is the artist-as-marketing-genius trope
