Maybe this is a strange place to take up a blogging challenge, but it has made me think this afternoon, so I’m turning it around a little and tossing this post out there for you all to think about and hopefully you will respond. You can always leave a comment at the bottom – or use the contact form if you want to keep it private and just between you and me.
Anyway – the challenge. What do I wish I had known at the age of 20? I promise I won’t make it too long a post, and I intend to keep it appropriately focussed for this blog.
1 I wish I had known that doing a drawing a day would make a lifetime of inspiration available and that I really would improve in leaps and bounds.
2 I wish I had known that I could look at criticism objectively and use it to improve my work. It’s too easy to become downhearted and take it too personally sometimes
3 I wish I had known that practice never will make it perfect – but that practice is fun – and the journey towards perfection will never end but become more and more exciting.
I have many other ‘wish I had known….s’ but these will do for now. I’m throwing it out at YOU – what do YOU wish YOU had known that would make your current creative life so much easier/more enjoyable?
Don’t forget that it’s currently the Be Creative Weekend. Lots going on and some wonderful results appearing. Hope you will join us if you haven’t already done so.
