On any given day, the number of forces which can undermine your creative efforts is vast.

A woman’s day can be made miserable by a sore back.

A friend can spoil your mood.

A previous engagement can fill your time so that nothing else is possible.

A baby can keep you awake all night.

Politics and news headlines can depress you right back into bed.

Most of these however, are fixable. Investing time and money and effort into steering your life towards a creative space requires a bit of a plan. A plan that is repeated and refined eventually becomes the norm. Norms eventually become bulletproof to interruption. (That’s my plan anyways…in a nutshell).
