2010 – A Year of Thinking Creatively

In a post I wrote a few weeks ago I explored the idea of setting up monthly personal “creativity challenges” in 2010. I’ve given it some thought since then, and have developed this list:

  • January: Photography
  • February: Needle felting
  • March: Daily 100 Words posts
  • April: Creative BookCrossing releases
  • May: Drawing
  • June: Daily Haiku
  • July: Random Acts of Kindness & Senseless Acts of Beauty
  • August: French vocabulary
  • September: Cooking
  • October: Cardmaking
  • November: Daily blog posts for National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo)
  • December: Crocheting

As the time to begin each monthly challenge approaches I’ll write more about my reasons for choosing that particular idea, and also detail the guidelines I’m targeting to make the challenge a success.

I’m really looking forward to this!

    I think that's a great idea! I wish I was focused enough to do something like that. The list would be easy enough but to actually do the list that I come up with would be tough. I lack the discipline…

    Brilliant idea. It will help you to focus. It's fine having good intentions, but you need to have a plan too, or that's all they stay, just good intentions.

    When I did the LJ meme listing the first line of the first entry of each month it made me realize what a lousy year I had, and mostly because of my perception of it, so I did a fantasy one…the first lines of the first posts for each month next year :=) I won't do that in my public blog, but it is giving me something to aim for and live up to !!

    @Elaine – I'm very bad when it comes to discipline myself, so we'll see what happens! I figure I can stick with anything for a month, though!

    @islandmomma – Thank you! And I love your idea re. fantasy first lines – what a brilliant way to set goals! Thank you for sharing that with me.
