Days 98-101: When I began the Year of Creative Habits I hoped a daily creative activity would ultimately help with my writing.
I’m now 101 days in and I think it has – and more. My word choices have expanded, my thoughts jump and connect smoother and I’m able to “dive in” to projects easier. One of the aspects I’ve imposed on my daily creative practice is that it takes no more time than 30 minutes to an hour. In turn, these short bursts of concentrated focus have helped me learn to grab onto and complete writing assignments quicker .
This weekend I finished two biographical descriptions for an upcoming art exhibit, an original poem for a poetry reading and a blog for my work team’s web page. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon.
My other creative activities for this weekend, Days 98, 99 and 101, dabbling in knitting, Zentangle and coloring are shown below:
