I love reading about art and the creative process that we go though. The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron is filled with pathways to discovering the artist inside us all. This particular piece developed after reading about the Crazymakers in our lives. I quote from the book: Crazymakers are those personalities that create storm centers. They are often charismatic, frequently charming, highly inventive and powerfully persuasive. And, for the creative person in their vicinity, they are enormously destructive. You know the type; charismatic but out of control, long on problems and short on solutions.
Crazymakers expect special treatment.
Crazymakers spend your time and money
Crazymakers triangulate those they deal with.
Crazymakers create drama.
Crazymakers are expert blamers.
If you are involved in a tortured tango with a crazymaker, stop dancing to his/her tune.
