A Creative Commitment

I have a lot to accomplish this year on the creative side. Sometimes it’s hard to stay motivated, especially when other things ‘drop in’ at unexpected or awkward times – but life is never certain, so we learn to adapt. There is nothing like commitment and accountability, though, so this is how I’m handling it.

I have committed to doing something on most days of the year. The ‘most’ allows for unexpected traumas or events over which I have no control and the ‘something’ means that I don’t need to fret if I can’t continue what I was doing yesterday for some reason. So, how am I being accountable? Well, I’m writing about it all in a special secret diary, and inviting readers to subscribe for a fee of £10.00 for the whole of 2014. No matter when you join you will have access to all the posts for the year – no adverts from ‘suitable suppliers’ etc, just writing about my creative process and what I have done today. There will be chances for you to become involved, occasional tutorials, all sorts of good reasons why you should join, and you can read more details here. Yesterday I wrote about this


Today there will be even more details about my investigations. I’ve already taken yesterday’s efforts to the next level – and I’m hoping to do something else after lunch as well.

Would you like to join me? If you do you could request to receive one of my hand printed postcards featuring my raspberry printing process! That post was a few days ago – but as you can also read that you too could add your name. Some have already been sent – but there will be plenty more ready for sending.

A taster is posted here every day, and you can read just a little more about it here. Why not join me?

Ten times a year there is also a creative event to which everyone is invited. Details of that can be found here.
