As I whittle away my time on the world wide web waiting for inspiration to strike, I realize it never will as long as I have a mouse in my hand instead of a pencil. If I’ve heard it a dozen times, I’ve heard it a million: I must practice, practice, practice if I truly want to be a _____ (insert here: writer, artist, musician, photographer, dancer, etc.) I know you are nodding your head in agreement. If you have just begun in your creative journey, are in the throes of it, have been ignoring the nagging desire or are just returning to your dreams after a hiatus, then now is the time to rise to the challenge!
I’ve done enough planning, dreaming, thinking, and talking about it, but today I start doing! I have given myself a new challenge: for the next 29 days of this February Leap Year I promise to sketch every single day. I will doodle, draw, color, work out my ideas and put pictures on paper. And then I will share them with you daily on my public Facebook Page and weekly on my blog. I hope you will follow along as I push myself one step closer to my goals. Even better, join in the fun and challenge yourself too! And tell me about it because I’d love to know if I’ve inspired someone to take the next step in their creative journey.
So, are you with me? 29 days to a more creative life. 29 days closer to your goals. 29 days of skill building. 29 days. every. single. day. And you know you’ll be glad you did! Now turn off this screen and pick up a notebook, we have work to do!
