Life is the Art

In my art life
I took the lap top downstairs but played Win Lose or Draw with D and didn't work on anything.

Today Saturday the 22 of March, I am making Alphabet letters out of magazine clippings so we can scan them and make an animation for our 18 month old daughter.
That is creative and fun.
My Vision board is still half down. Oak tag with beautifully covered surface and bare space. What should I put there? I know what I want but can a magazine picture say it. I'll find quotes and put that on there.
Visions Boards are visual representations of the things you want to manifest in your life. To make one you use a big piece of canvas or oak tag. Look in mags, books to find images. Look at it daily to remind you of your goals.

It started at this intentions meeting. A group of people sat around and gave positive energy to your goals and dreams after you stated them out loud. It was an awesome meeting and very powerful. One of my intentions was that I was teaching successful writing workshops that help people write free and help them cure writers' block. My friend called me and asked if I would be interested in doing some workshops she just got a studio where I could do them. Of course I marveled at at how quickly this goal came to fruition. I believe.
I had a workshop yesterday. I used different sensual stimulation and the participants wrote off of smelling nutmeg(me), mint and vanilla. We wrote about the tastes of summer and what seeing the image of a beautiful elder woman holding the earth in her hand, her knowing smile kind and welcoming. For this class we did four and five minute freewrites. We used word prompts that i clipped from magazines.

Sometimes our creative selves just need a non-judgmental place of expression. Freewriting helps you write without constraints.

Here are a few freewriting facts

* Freewriting is a really helpful writing activity that allows a person to write without stopping.

* Write fast, don’t let the self-censor get you, it’s that sly voice in your head that says your writing is no good and it’s all pointless. You can’t listen to that cause you can’t stop.

* Don’t start thinking how great your writing is. Stay focused.
* You don’t have to worry about mipelling or punctuation

* There is no erasing or backspacing. No stopping, no erasing.

* If you can’t think of anything to write then put down “I can’t think of anything” or “I don’t know what to write” over and over again till something else comes.

* Freewriting is a technique designed to help the writer find their style and voice through uninhibited expression.
