As an artist or creative entrepreneur, explore your relationship to money in a rant.
Aspects of money to consider:
What is a rant?
Have fun! Get stirred up! Find energy inside what may be the ambiguous feelings you have about the relationship between your art and money! Get it all the ick out!
An example rant from How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Zeuss:
You’re a foul one, Mr. Grinch,
EXTRAS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION: Once you’ve written your rant, record yourself reading it and post on your blog! Reflect on what you discovered about yourself in relation to money as you ranted. Will you adjust any of your art-financial behaviors?
My response is simple. Our dependency on money sucks. Our relationship to money sucks. Our need to feed our creativity….doesn’t suck. I love creating. Making art, clothes, fun silly doodles, and darning socks. I love it all. But it doesn’t bring in money to pay all those bills that keep creeping into my inbox and mailbox and head in the wee early morning hours when I should still be asleep! If the sun hasn’t risen yet, then I do not want to either! unless. Unless it is for money. Money to pay my bills. Money to buy more supplies to create more art. To have more fun. To be happy.
