Hi everyone! I got this idea from fellow blogger Theresa Barker, a science fiction writer who never runs out of beautiful stories and creative ideas. (Thanks, Theresa!) Please check out her blog, which features sketches in fiction and poetry!
Currently, she is doing a six-week experiment in becoming a more productive writer, Writing into the Dream. Her latest post on this suggests writing a letter to our writing in order to find out what our writing wants to be, instead of what we want it to be. She asked me if I had ever considered writing a letter to my drawing, which I hadn’t. So, I decided to give it a go:
How have you been? Recently, I have been searching for ideas and have found that I have stumbled across artist’s block. Now I must step back and consider your wishes. What do you want to be? Do you have any suggestions for the steps I should take? Let’s find your identity together. Thanks for your help!
I am quite excited for the outcome of my project. I’m not exactly sure what I want to be yet, although I do have some goals in mind. I will strive to be creative and unique, something different than the work you usually do. I would like to convey a message, maybe even inspire change. Finally, don’t worry about the outcome just yet—simply let the ideas come to you. After all, it is the process that counts!
Hope you enjoyed this post! Writing a letter to my drawing really helped me get an idea of some of my goals for my next project. I encourage you to try this out and let me know how it goes. Meanwhile, my drawing calls!
P.S. I am totally obsessed with this sleeping Pusheen pen I found recently. Such a cool cat, by the way.
