Call me basic, but Fall is by far the most perfect time of year. Not because of pumpkin spice anything (I’m not a fan), but because good ‘ol Mother Nature does her thing to wipe the slate clean…and right before the magic of the holidays.
Did you not get your summer bod in time this year? Did you have an influx of ants on your patio? Did your spring cleaning lead to summer avoiding and then fall dusting?
It’s okay. It’s all okay. Because the world is about to shed it’s old and make room for the new. It’s going out with a beautiful bang of color, giving you a bright white clean slate, and then letting you start all over. Whenever anyone asks me why I still live in the Midwest, this my friends is why. I live for the change. I thrive on it.
So, this Fall I’m going to focus on shedding my own nasty creative habits and FALL BACK INTO MY WRITING. I’m going to share with all of you how I’m going to reclaim my writing, and I want you to join.
Are you a writer? A painter? A candlestick maker? Join in the fun to remember why you do what you love.
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin, and have it all to myself, than be crowded on a velvet cushion.”
― Henry David Thoreau
Here’s how it’ll work. Every Sunday, from September-October 31st, I’m going to share with you a weekly thought to help refocus your thinking for the week. I’ll also post what my writing accomplishment is for that week. I hope you’ll all share too using #FallintoCreativity on whateve’s social media you want.
Week One Thought: GETTING STARTED
The first week is simple, now more putting things off. Just start the new project, revision, edit, process, whatever. START IT NOW. Decide, commit, accomplish all the things. SO, tell me what you’re starting with #fallingintocreativity.
I’m re-starting a revision…because I refuse to give up on myself and this novel.
Let’s let go of the past, wipe the slate clean, and plaster it with all the amazing art we can.
