Promoting yourself with words is a creative process as is art. Your goal: people will find, read and remember you.
A couple visited my studio early this morning. After reviewing some of my work and chatting with the woman, also an artist, about her art work and what she hoped to learn and master, she and her partner then smiled, both acknowledging a quote,
“My muse drinks coffee.” They nodded as if that is truly what was part of my creative process.
“Where did you read that?”
“On your blog.”
“Really. Are you sure?”
They looked a little confused. “Yes.”
I write so many things, I may have forgotten.”
After the couple left, I went to my art blog and queried: “My muse drinks coffee.”
Shorten the query.
Examine the site more closely.
Ahh! Here it is. Part of a description of Jo M. Orise, the artist, on my blogger’s home page: Painterly Comments.
What about Jo?
How would I forget that? That is who I am. And I do drink coffee which obviously now affects my muse more than it affects me.
