Writing has always been easy for me, so this month has been challenging in that the writing process may be easy, but the actual writing has been very difficult at times. I've written 37,000 words. Some of it is probably good, some of it is probably fit for the round file, but all of it is from my heart. It's been an amazing process so far. I haven't even stopped to fix typos or capitalization errors or spelling, I've just really hunkered down and focused on getting ME out there on the pages. I'm so very proud of myself and I've learned so much. I'm not done, but man, I am a happy girl with where I've come!
On a side note, this seems to have opened up my art journal channel. Whether it's because I am trying to escape my writing or expand on it, I don't know, but I've been working in my art journal and I'm having fun with it. I'm going to share two pages here. First, you need to know that I took the photos with this cool iphone app called Hipstamatic. I'm SO in love with it! It intensifies the colors and adds a funky edging. I just love it.
I'm finding that in my art journal at least, there seems to be a word that triggers the page, or the page triggers a word. It's a really interesting journey and I'm enjoying it immensely. I am so thankful for Julie who taught my first class, without her, I'd still be trying to figure out how to get started instead of jumping in with both feet and figuring it out as I go!
~ Take care and make it a wonderful day. Celebrate the beautiful life you have.
