As an illustrator, I know that the best way to improve my craft is to practice every day. So last week, inspired by my friend Teresa Robeson, who has posted One Good Thing every day for over a year, I started a daily creative blog.
It is called Create One a Day. My goal is to post artwork, but on busy days, I'll post other creative things I do like meals, photos, or other things. This will be both an accountability mechanism and a journal.
Would you like to join me? Either post your daily creation on an existing blog or social media site, or start a new one dedicated to this challenge. Let me know where it is, and I'll add you to the blogroll on my Create One a Day page. And if you feel inclined, you can use this badge to link back to my site:
And to keep you motivated, here are some articles to ponder as you think about those New Year's resolutions:
- How to Actually Do the Stuff You Say You Want to Do (a nice list of suggestions to get yourself to follow through on your goals)
- Commitment Devices (my guest post on Julie Hedlund's blog about ways to make yourself accountable to achieve your goals)
- Productive Procrastination for Writers (Yvonne Mes's tips; if you're going to do it, do these things)
- 5 Types of Unproductive Procrastination and How to Stop it Now (my companion post to Yvonne's about what not to do)
