I just came across an interesting article on journaling and writing at the “Journal For You” blog.
This is good advice whether you want to write, illustrate or pursue any creative endeavor. When you treat your creative pursuit as a form or exercise, it will free you up to be creative.
Whenever I have faced writer’s block, the one thing that has kept me creating was to write and draw in my sketchbooks whether I felt like it or note. Pretty soon, those creative juices come back.
Don’t wait for the muse to strike you. Get creative in your journal or sketchbook today, whether you feel like it or not.
