I received the most welcome email today! And right on the heels of the Challenge Group invite!... hold me, I'm frightened. Why do we get all twitchy when good things happen?
Callie Rucker Oettinger, who works with Steven Pressfield, the author of The War of Art, noticed my reference to his book in my blog today. She then contacted me with a most generous offer!
She wrote that Mr. Pressfield will be happy to do a short 3-question Q&A with me on my blog! What an incredible opportunity! I have lots 'o questions, but thought it might be fun to open it up to followers as well, if they're interested, to pose the questions, as they relate to our creative work. I'll choose the three most interesting questions and Ms. Oettinger will forward them to Mr. Pressfield. I'll post the Q&A session on my blog so we can all benefit from his wisdom. And he will also forward 4 signed copies of his book which I will then pass on to the authors of the three questions! I'd say that is pretty neat, no?
I'm happy. The War of Art helped side step the dark place when I first began painting dailies. I carried my dog-eared copy around for weeks and was thinking, when I spewed out my fears this AM, that it might be a great time to pull it out again!
Serendipitous assistance! There are no coincidences.
