Last year, I created a blog series called 24 Days of Writing 🙂 This year, I thought it might be more manageable to have 12 days instead. I’m excited to kick this series off starting tomorrow. I hope some of you will join me.
Throughout this series, I will find fantasy submission opportunities. I’ll share the opportunity here and challenge myself and others to submit a finished story. Last year I was accepted to a few spots. One of my shorts turned into a much longer piece. You never know what you’ll come up with 🙂
How are you doing? Happy Friday! The weekend is near 🙂
Today I’m celebrating my 28th birthday. As I was driving to a local cafe, I started thinking about new goals for this year. I want to focus more on writing and other creative pursuits (crocheting, painting, candle-making, pottery, crafting, etc.).
That’s why I’ve decided to start a brand new blog series called The Creativity Diary 🙂
It’s so easy to say we don’t have any time to pursue our creative dreams. I know I did that a couple of years ago and still do depending on the week. I feel frustrated when a week or two goes by, and I haven’t done anything to further my creative journey.
I want to encourage you to chase after your dreams. You can start by making a small step forward.
Once a month, I’ll write up a post about how I did. I may share some interesting finds on creativity and ways to stay focused.
It will look different. Today I unplugged from the internet. I wrote in my journal and brainstormed ways to strengthen the plot in my Celtic fantasy. Maybe tomorrow I will work on my rag rug while watching an episode of a kdrama 😀
The goal is to pursue art every day, even if it’s something small 🙂 Victoria Schwab tweeted about how she doesn’t write every day but keeps the creative door open. I love that.
Goals for the Upcoming Week
I want to finish revising the first 15 chapters of my Celtic fantasy.
Play around with my watercolors and paint.
Research a local pottery class.
What about you :)? What are your creative goals for the week? Is there something you’ve been putting off? I’d love to hear below ❤
