Last weekend I had a few minutes to read through one of my mom’s new books:
The Artist’s Way at Work: Riding the Dragon
I took away two things from what I’ve read so far.
1. Write 3 pages about whatever you want as soon as you wake up every morning. These are called morning pages.
2. Name the 5 alter-egos that are within your persona and list the characteristics that you associate with them.
(For example some one might say one of the characters that make up my persona is Liza Simoli. She is the introverted computer geek who never wants to leave the house or take a shower.)
So I’ve been doing the morning pages everyday, and it’s going well. Until today when I thought I would use the time to name the 5 characters inside me. It was easy at first, but now I’m thinking there are more than 5…
is it possible that one of my alter ego’s has a severe case of dissociative identity disorder?
(formerly known as multiple personality disorder)
anyway, I’m still gonna try but I may have to allow for limitless characters.
