something to write on (journal or loose paper)

Dismantling the Committee happens in this order: First recognize your Committee members by paying attention to the voices or the faces that pop up when you’re in the studio and it isn’t going well. Then think about each person and use writing as the tool to unlock the reasons behind each member’s presence. Next, write whatever needs to be written in order to dismiss the member from the table:

  • Maybe you have to tell him or her off.
  • Maybe you have to let go gently because the person’s presence says more about the work you need to do than it does about him or her. This can feel sad but also be a relief.
