The Tea House: Visualizing the Dream Part 1

By Spike Marlowe

teahouse0Today is brought to you by hot salted caramel cider.

We’re going to perform an exercise:

Close your eyes and completely relax your body, from head to toe. Now, in your mind’s eye, visualize where you’d like to be in your artistic life one year from now. Do this repeatedly over the next several days. Towards the end of this week–say next Sunday evening–write down or draw what you see. Please feel free to share in the comments, and we’ll chat more about this next week.
Spike Marlowe has held a number of odd jobs, including working in a wild west show, as a detective, as a Bigfoot researcher, as a writer for an Internet content farm and as a busker. These days she’s a writer, blogger and bizarro editor for Eraserhead Press, with a focus on the New Bizarro Author Series. Her first book, Placenta of Love, is now available at all the usual locations. You can stalk her online at her website, or on Twitter at @spikemarlowe.

    Very helpful! I’m going to apply this in the future. My problem has been I’ve been getting hung up on how awesome a writer I was two years ago, and I feel like I’ve never gotten back to that pinnacle of output. Knowing what to visualize, I will try to visualize how good I was back then and aim towards the NOW.
