This year I started a new side project that has been taking up a lot of my time but has been well worth it. The idea is pretty simple. I choose one creative habit and do it everyday for a month. At the end of the month, I might continue or change to a different habit. I'll do it for the whole year while learning what works for me and what doesn't. It's my year of creative habits. This month I'm drawing each morning. Next month, I know I'll be adding color to my life. After that, who knows?
I'm already learning a lot about developing habits and my own tendencies. I'm getting more comfortable with my drawing, though I have a long way to go. Along with the blog I'm collecting articles, quotes, images, etc. about creativity and compiling them on tumblr. I've created a tagboard for others who want to play along. Just instagram or tweet your habit and include the tag #yearofcreativehabits. Your post will show up on the tagboard and that would be just awesome!
