It’s been 3 months since my last post (sounds like something said in the Confessional during my childhood). I go in and out of the blog depending on what’s going on in life (Recently, I spent nearly a month in the Kansas City area house/cat sitting for close friends while they trolloped to Paris and those are the things I post on Instagram). This blog was originally just for me, to record certain creative activities.
Update – today begins National Novel Writing Month (always November):
Last year I worked on the first draft of a Novela, completing my 50,000-word goal. Loved the experience and am joining again this year – developing a book of short stories. Wonderful challenge!
Also annually in November is Art Every Day Month, so much fun!
Another wonderful challenge. The commitment is daily posting of creative acts/endeavors/ideas – photos, visual art, music, written art, creative lists, can be anything – whatever one does that day that is creative (and really, isn’t simply waking up and loving life a creative act?). This is about the commitment, not the perfection of art.
So I’m participating in both challenges. Looking forward to posting on Instagram as well as here. I am rarely on Facebook these days preferring to do the work as opposed to being enmeshed in what has become toxic or inane dialogue for many.
For this first day of both challenges, I am posting a quote on writing (since I haven’t actually written yet today):
“Start writing, no matter what. The water does not flow
until the faucet is turned on.”
— Louis L’Amour
and an ink piece I’ve been playing with (ink work of this nature relaxes me). Two separate pieces, married on software.
