I have written stories for as long as I can remember.
I’ve never joined a writer’s group.
I’ve started drawing and painting and general art. But I’m not sure about the local art club.
And there’s knitting and sewing and crochet and spinning, costume to make and felt to, well, felt.
Creativity is something that gives me great pleasure, but I have a habit of losing focus.
At the back of my mind is this idea that if I could create a creative community around myself I could give and receive support and direction. Perhaps I could take a story from first idea to novel. Maybe I could illustrate a picture book.
(There was a self taught artist who has only been painting for two years shared on instagram’s own account today. There is no limit to where we can reach if we let our dreams lift us. )
So I have this idea that we could build a creative circle. Share our goals. Set challenges. (I have some ideas) Offer encouragement, gentle constructive criticism and support. Anyone fancy joining in? Please comment if so. And feel free to share. You don’t need to have a blog to join, just some way of sharing your work, be it photos or whatever really.
Hoping there are a few of you that think this sounds like a good idea!
