Read Chapters 1 and 2 of Twyla Tharp’s The Creative Habit, paying special attention to what she says about ritual, and to the examples she uses of ritual in her own life and in the lives of some of her artist and writer friends. Answer the following questions in list form:
1. Tharp says, “We all have rituals in our day, whether we are aware of them or not.” I am willing to bet that you have a ritual that begins your day, too. Complete the following sentence: “I begin each day of my life with a ritual: _____________________ .”
2. Tharp is a choreographer. She says “when I walk into the white room I am alone, but I am alone with my: body, ambition, ideas, passions, needs, memories, goals, prejudice, distractions, and fears. When you sit down to write, or when you decide to make something artistic, or any other kind of creative endeavor, what 4-8 things are you alone with? List them.
3. When you are working, creating, or writing, what are your four most intense distractions? List them.
4. Rank your distractions in order of the toughest to give up to the easiest to give up. Imagine giving up the toughest distraction from your work and/or creative practice for one week. What do you suppose would happen? How would you feel? Would you become more productive? Would it be worth it?
