I don't mind and have been helping him for 20 something years. Yes, the artist as secretary/bookkeeper, lots of fun! Since the early years, the job holders have evolved from myself, to my very competent sister, to my pro-bookkeeper mom. Everyone has had their chance to help. I do some things from home, discuss the office end of the business by phone, but Mondays I show up in person. Secretly, they call me "Big Boss." I think that's funny.
Today is Tuesday. Tuesday ends up being errand day! As hard as I try, I cannot make Tuesday an art day, all day. The farmer's market is Tuesday, I need to visit the post office, bank, sales at the drugstore, pick up/drop off dry cleaning, decide on dinner, load the laundry, empty the dryer, and on and on. By mid-afternoon I'm surprised the day has flown by and I couldn't get to the art.
My next target for an artist's date is Wednesday, which could be a problem, so I might look at Thursday.
In The Artist's Way I'm still in week 7 when I should have moved on by now. I haven't done the tasks I was required to do. The "teacher" will not be happy and I'm going to be left back in this course!
I think I need a secretary.
