Let me tell you a Creative Impostor story for the New Year. It's about a woman taking a huge risk.
The story begins during that weird week between Christmas and New Year’s. Where noting gets done, no one knows what day it is and yet, somehow, you imagined getting caught up on all the things you didn’t get to yet this year.
It’s Monday and I’m driving from Chicago to a small town in Wisconsin, not far over the state line. It’s only 6pm but it grows increasingly darker and more ominous to this self-diagnosed city girl. I’m on a call with my friend Julia… running my internal monologue past her. (Thank you, Julia, as always for indulging me.)
Why am I driving to Wisconsin right now? What exactly do I hope to accomplish? Who do I think I am?
I'm taking a huge risk. It's not the same kind of risk I took when I moved from Michigan to the big city of Chicago out of college, or when I started auditioning for storefront theater productions around the city, or when I quit my full-time arts admin job to start my own yoga studio business, or even when I started this podcast.
What feels different is that I'm telling you now, before it exists, before I even know exactly what it is. And the reason it's a risk to tell you is because I worry that I might not finish it.
