Creative Life Project: August

August

It is a bit tricky having so many creative loves.  As much as I love to paint, I also love to write.  This month I am going to switch gears by working on my writing skills with a different focus. I will record memories and write about everyday life.

Monthly goals:
Remember birthdays.
Read Writing Down the Bones.  This is a book on the craft of writing by Natalie Goldberg that I’ve wanted to read for some time now.  This is the month:)

Daily/weekly goals:
Do one creative thing daily. Minimum of 15 minutes drawing, writing, experimenting.
Go to bed at a reasonable hour.
Exercise three times per week doing exercises I enjoy.
Do at least one writing exercise a week.  This can either be something inspired by Writing Down the Bones or an entry in the book  A Mother’s Legacy.  The latter book is filled with prompts to inspire you to record your stories and your family’s history for the future generation.

    Writing Down the Bones is fantastic. I used to use it with my English students. If I’m remembering correctly, it is full of really cool writing assignments that actually make you want to write.
