What I wish…..

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.

Colour has been business for a number of years. Crochet is one of my current means of expression and I enjoy enabling other creatives. Some of my blogs are kept as daily records. Take a look and you will see.
