I wanted to write about the planning I'd been doing on Friday, but that seems to not be happening today. When I looked at the notes I took, the ones I'd spent all afternoon writing, it all felt so blasé. I sat there staring at some of my notes wondering why I had taken them. … Continue reading Blasé planning and bite-sized segments
Well, today had kind of a rushed start. And, I felt like I was crawling through the day. The whole thing made me feel very uneasy. But, I woke up with an image in my head for that canvas I had swirled colors around on last night until I had nearly made mud. I wrote … Continue reading Short segments
There are still not enough hours in the day. I swear that I really need to move to a 36 hour work day or something. Granted, I did take a nap today, so I'm feeling pretty lucky there. I did my writing this morning in sprints of 15 minutes. I'm not sure I could have … Continue reading Overstretching tonight

I've also spend some time playing around in Adobe Audition this week. I've been teaching myself how to … Continue reading Progress – October 16, 2017
I've been working with Manga Studios (or I was before I got taken down with this awful cold that's been going around). I've said in prior posts that a person can make great strides in accomplishing whatever they want to do even if they only work on it in 15 minutes a day. Well, as … Continue reading Putting forth the work
If you had only 15 minutes per day to dedicate to your creative outlet, whatever that may be for you, do you believe you'd get anywhere? 15 minutes of painting, or writing, or sculpting, or sewing, etc. Do these small chunks of time really add up to anything? Of course they do! Just like if … Continue reading What can you do in 15 minutes per day?
