I love making stuff, but I never do it because I’m too lazy, too afraid of mistakes, and too busy doing things that I don’t find nearly as satisfying.
So this year, I am going to try to make something every single day. That thing might be a sketch, a painting, a craft project, a song, a new recipe, or even a performance. It just has to be something I created.
Naturally, I’m nervous. Will I have time to make something everyday? Will I have enough ideas to fill an entire year? Will I hate this project by the time it’s over…or halfway through? Who knows, but the only way to find out is to start.
The pictures above show what I made today, my first day of this crazy project. It was fun to do and the first time I’ve ever spent any length of time drawing and painting letters. I’ll call it a good beginning.
