It’s a new year (according to some calendars, at least) and a good time to reset, refresh, and start anew. I gave up doing resolutions several years ago, though I still try to use the energy around this time of year as impetus to get back to things I need and want to do. Such as filling up my internal creative well by engaging in wild acts of creativity.
Okay, maybe not wild ones.
Last year I came across the Daily Project Deck by Molly McLeod and immediately fell in love. As you might know, I’m a big fan of fun practice activities such as writing exercises and games, so I knew this deck would tick all my boxes. I decided to start with it in February. I got sidetracked yesterday, so officially we’re starting on the second!
Here are the cards I picked from the deck:
The Project: Tiny Things. The Inspiration: What Medium Scares You?
Given these prompts, I decided to go with drawing one thing on a Post-It note every day until Monday. And since I’m starting one day late, I had to draw two things today:
Now you can see why this medium scares me. I can’t draw! I’ve never been able to draw well. However, that won’t stop me from trying and seeing what I can get out of this.
If you also find this fun and inspiring, why don’t you join me? Pick a tiny thing, such as a very short poem or a song that lasts for 10 seconds, using a medium that scares you. Let me know what you pick in the comments and link me to the results!
