Dear Friends and Family,
Surprisingly, writing on my art blog everyday is not a resolution for 2011!
Rather, I’ve decided to form a habit. It’s been said that it takes up to 6 weeks (to form a habit, that is) so here’s my shot at writing, publicly, in 2011! How is this different from a resolution, you ask? It’s different in that I have no idea where this experiment will take me and it’s a habit (very rarely is a ‘resolution’ synonymous with a habit). I’m also up for challenging myself and getting my thoughts out there versus having them become stale rock hard thoughts that weigh me down. The promise is more to myself than anything or anyone else. I WILL write (a sentence, a paragraph, an essay) everyday about one of my passions, the deepest passion, which is Art – EVERYDAY. Yes, I said it, EVERYDAY!
This will not be easy and some days, I may just throw a word on my blog and not care BUT I’m trying to make my voice known and heard in the arts community so I’m starting the habit today!! I will also be making use of TheDailyPost, a community of other bloggers with similar goals.
If you’re a friend or family member reading this blog, I highly encourage you to leave comments and/or questions. I could always use the feedback, support, guidance, and constructive criticism! Cheers to a new year and, hopefully, a lot of new wonderful art projects and writing opportunities!
Hearts and stars and monkey bars,
Dorothy (aka E/IC Art Lover)
