Every Day A Few Words

Over the last few weeks I haven’t been writing very much, and I was beginning to feel a bit worried about this.

But I know part of the reason is that I’ve been more focused on the visual arts recently. I took a few art classes at the end of last year – and I loved it!

I needed to give time to this and find out whether it was just a passing whim, or the start of something new. I’ve worked out that this new learning in drawing and painting is something I want to pursue so that it can become another way to explore my world and to express myself.

And then – thanks to a connection on Instagram and Twitter I was led to Jackie Morris’s suggestion to write a few words every day – just 25 words, no more than 50 – handwritten. She describes this at the end of her January 8 blog post on http://www.jackiemorris.co.uk/blog/more-than-home-from-home/

I’m trying not to stress over how much, or how well, just to write. This feels like both a challenge and an aid. Its all about noticing the world around me and writing a small observation, a reflection.

I started posting my small writings on Twitter and Instagram, but I think they belong here too. I’ll include photos when I can, and who knows – a few drawing and paintings might even start appearing!

I’m happy to use my first “few words” for my January calendar – I’ve been a bit slow getting this year’s calendar off the ground.

One thought on “Every Day A Few Words

  1. The world is a small place i used to live in the same village as Jackie.
    Words and images go together and sometimes become one.
    Love the idea of writing every day just a few words to create in the end a story or poem or an image/poem.
