After completing Week 8 something happened. I just happened to be browsing an on-line newspaper and tucked at the bottom of the page was a request for readers to write about experiences that have happened to them; experiences they have fictionalized. I quickly went to my ‘recent documents’ on Word and looked at stuff that I had written some time ago. I found a story that was close to the word count requested and spent a week tweaking and altering. When I felt it was close to perfection (just kidding) I submitted the story, with a part of me asking myself why was I doing this? Did I really think they would select this? Five days later I receive an email from the editor telling me that he had selected my story to be published in the next edition of the newspaper. I could not believe it! It had made my day, it had made my week.
Clearly, The Artist’s Way is an amazing book.
