Claire from loobylu.com one of my touch stone mommy places for inspiration went away. She hasn’t really gone away, she is just taking a very long and needed break, I mean she blogged for years non stop. Her place was always one where I went to get refreshed and to gather focus and study how other artist moms handle the everyday. Other than that I have been exploring the web gaming world and learning much about the future of games and gaming technology. Drawing and painting and even writing, though mostly really sappy poetry while organizing all my children’s things into smaller and smaller containers. Part of my year of organizational pushes. So far slow going. I have been reading a lot too. Books, real books…though I find the whole electronic book thing quite interesting.
In pass it on fashion Claire posted something she had found through Life Hacker about Jerry Seinfeld’s creative process… I love anything that helps and truly the though is very inspiring.
“He [Jerry] told me to get a big wall calendar that has a whole year on one page and hang it on a prominent wall. The next step was to get a big red magic marker.
He said for each day that I do my task of writing, I get to put a big red X over that day. “After a few days you’ll have a chain. Just keep at it and the chain will grow longer every day. You’ll like seeing that chain, especially when you get a few weeks under your belt. Your only job next is to not break the chain.”
“Don’t break the chain,” he said again for emphasis.”
This really is a brilliant idea.
Oh? Have you noticed how everyone has a zombie story or that zombies are quite the monster of the day fare? Their everywhere.
The book (s) of the moment for me is A room with a view – rereading all E.M. Forester. I loved A reliable wife http://www.reliablewife.net/ . The best read I have had in a long while.
I am ready for the long Wisconsin winter to be over. Hope you are safe and warm and dry wherever you are. I hope you are all having tulips!!
