You’ve all heard of NaNoWriMo right? It’s where you challenge yourself to write a certain amount of words every day for the month of November with the objective of having a rough draft of a novel written. Doneski. In the bag.
Some people grow a moustache for November, but I thought it’d be much more fun to grow a journal! Cue NaNoJouMo! Journaling every day for 30 days during November.
I’ve been wanting to set myself an art challenge recently. A challenge with the objectives of: creating more art, developing my style and loosening up. So let me present to you my NaNoJouMo twist: The 15 Mins Edition.
Every day I’m going to be taking 15 minutes out of my schedule (I’m a mum of 2 boys and I have a full-time job – but I think even I can do 15 minutes!) to art journal. But I’m not just going to journal randomly, I’m going to FINISH a page/spread in that time.
No sitting around trying to achieve perfection, no leeway for creating a certain outcome. Just me, my journal, my art supplies, a 15 minute timer and my creativity on speed! WOOHOO!!
I’m hoping to kick start my own creativity (and hopefully yours!), get out of perfection & overthinking mode, work quickly & intuitively and basically have LOTS OF FUN! Yay! Can’t wait till 1 November 2015!
