Friday night drawing practice. Bought myself a new practice book - 'you will be able to draw by the end of this book', by @brightondrawing Am planning on seeing how much of it I can work through over the next couple of weeks. Just done some continuous line drawing practice, which I really love.  #acreativepractice #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #artistsonig #drawing #learntodraw #sketchbook
Spent yesterday evening listening to music with (notso) SmallTeen and experimenting with @derwentpencils graphitone. Think I'm going to be doing more of this.  #thirtygiftsofgratitude for quiet evenings and time with teen.  #acreativepractice #showup100 #sktchyinspired #instaartist #drawing #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #makersgonnamake #artistsonig #derwentpencils #learntodraw #learningallthetime
For those (Mon)days when creative juice runs dry there are some great prompt books about. Smallest has Creative Scribbles from @parragonbooks in the background (picked up @theworksstores yesterday) and I'm pondering a Wreck the Journal page.

Dewdrops and sunlight. Got wet feet (turns out crocs aren't ideal for October mornings, who knew?) but enjoyed the picture session. (Yes, this is how I try to start each day, water, outdoors, creativity. And I absolutely class photography as creative although I didn't used to let myself, as it feels too easy in a way? That probably doesn't make a lot of sense. Maybe I'll do better after coffee.) #whpmyeveryday #acreativepractice #mymorningview #cornersofmygarden #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #smallmomentsofcalm #heiterautumn #thirtygiftsofgratitude #spreadnaturelove #mystoryoflight #tostandandstare #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #impressionsofautumn #sgiew_autumn #outdoorsandhappy #inspiredbyseasons_autumn with @mimosastreet
Went for a run - managed about 20 minutes. Which meant I was quite a long way from home so I walked back taking pictures and enjoying the day, the scenery, the birds... (you may have to squint to see them, next time I'll take the camera). Now I'm going to put the phone in the bedroom and make things and draw things and maybe catch up on some blogging and stare sadly at my manuscript and squeeze in some housework.  How is Saturday looking for you?  #whpmyeveryday #thirtygiftsofgratitude birdsong :) #mymorningview #running #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #mystoryoflight #cornersofmyworld #coastalview #shotonmobile #beheiter #outdoorsandhappy #astillmoment #spreadnaturelove #lovelydeadcrap #sgiew_autumn #impressionsofautumn #inspiredbyseasons_autumn #heiterautumn
Eleanor's hand. 〰  I mounted images on board so they could be freestanding within existing spaces - in the cellar and in my neighbour's garage. I like the idea that people could pick them up and hold them, or rearrange as they wished, possibly altering narrative or making new formal connections with their surroundings. . . . #backburner4 #fluidforms #writingprompts #formations #exxplorevision #writethephotograph #experimental #poeticobjects #backburnerjournal #artistcommunity #writingthephotograph #studiospace #lightdarkmatters #onmatter #enrichmentofother #selfpublishing #writingandphotography #acreativepractice 〰@eleanor_mulhearn
Took myself on a #whpseasons photowalk around a nearby town while (notso)SmallTeen was having a masterclass in recording music. Finished at a cafe which bizarrely had no cake (??) but excellent coffee, and wrote a whole two sentences of the book that is still lurking in the back of my head. Which is two sentences more than most days this week so yay for that.  #thirtygiftsofgratitude - having a morning to myself to wander, and a beautiful place to wander in :) #showup100 @journalofawriter #acreativepractice  #smallmomentsofcalm #heitermoments #impressionsofautumn #inspiredbyseasons_autumn #sgiew_autumn #cornersofmyworld #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #shotonmobile #mystoryoflight #sharingmyday #otherfolksflowers #outdoorsandhappy
Today's #showup100 with @journalofawriter. I painted. I drew on the painting. And then I scanned it, uploaded it to @redbubble and listed it for sale on various items. (I'd like to reward myself for this act of doing by falling over and sleeping, but instead I have to go make dinner. )  There's a redbubble link in my bio at the moment if you want to explore.  #makersgonnamake #artistsonig #cactus #redbubble #acreativepractice #creativityfound #illustration #calledtocreate #ourcreativeselves #linkinbio
Today #showup100 looks like hot chocolate and the located manuscript at a table at softplay. Right. Where did I leave my characters? (It's been a while. )  Ps do proper writers drink hot chocolate with marshmallows or should I be sticking to strong black coffee?  @journalofawriter  #writersofig #cupsinframe #amwriting #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #creativityfound #createeveryday #creativelifehappylife
It's still yesterday, OK? Because that way I won't be late for #showup100 and I'll have managed #acreativepractice two days running. (I haven't been to sleep yet, so it's still yesterday, my challenge to myself, my rules.) @journalofawriter hope you're hanging in there. (Today was never going to be a good day for writing. Way too many hours of having to be other places. Next couple of days aren't looking a whole lot better either but hey, keep on showing up, right?) #artistsonig #watercolour #blindcontourdrawing #sktchyinspired #ourcreativeselves #creativityfound #fb
So I decided I'd join in with @journalofawriter #showup100 challenge, and use it to give me some impetus to work on the novel I've been avoiding working on for months. And I had half an hour before I needed to cook dinner, so that seemed like an ideal time to drag it out, read through, and get back in the right frame of mind. Except, funny story, the printed copy isn't where I thought it was, and the backed up electronic copy doesn't appear to be accessible via my phone.  So that was my 30 minutes, which became 45 minutes of panic, and I got nothing creative done at all *and* dinner was late. Go me.  So after dinner I sat down to at least draw something, to feel I'd still got #acreativepractice in somehow, and while I was drawing I remembered I sent the draft to at least two people so there will be a copy somewhere either in email or on my laptop and all will be well.  I showed up. And tomorrow I'll come armed with words.  #sktchyinspired #learntodraw #drawing #artistsonig #pencil #sketch #writersonig #ourcreativeselves #creativewriting #creativelifehappylife
If you prefer your waves moving there's a clip in my stories (assuming you get this picture in your feed in the next 24 hours anyway! )  Water, exercise, creativity - spent my run distracting myself from running by plotting blog posts and articles. That will do for now. #c25k wk7 day 3 ticked off. I'm running at 4 km in the 25 minutes which means I'm a bit behind on pace, but hey, my phone says I'm running!  How's your morning working out?  #mymorningview #running #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #mystoryoflight #cornersofmyworld #coastalview #shotonmobile #beheiter #outdoorsandhappy #astillmoment #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise
Cradled, held, safe.  Goals for today: be kind to myself. Make it through the day without crying. (I'm aiming high today - this is going to be tough. My hip is packing in, my shoulder has frozen and I'd curl up in a pathetic ball in bed with a book but that hurts too. Ow. And that's enough self pity or I'll fail goal two here and now. )  #mymorningview #cornersofmygarden #seenotherwise #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #throughadifferenteye #raindrop #goals #smallmomentsofcalm #slowlived #myreality #acreativepractice #mystoryoflight #fb #outdoorsandhappy
#mymorningview from the yoga mat.  Creativity so far has been in exploring which angles give the best results on dewdrops, while rolling around trying to ease up the cramp my calf went into while doing yoga.  Very tempted to go back to bed for a do over. How's your morning so far?  #acreativepractice #smallmomentsofcalm #cornersofmygarden #anintentionallife #mystoryoflight #aprettyishkindof_wilderness #chasinglight #shotonmobile #bokeh #littlestoriesofmylife #fb #embracingtheseasons #jeweledlight #outdoorsandhappy #beheiter
Found (observed, seen). Left, not hidden, to the edge of a ledge, beach side. Set me pondering on connections, changes, and other odd things as I plodded through week 6 day 2 #c25k. (Phone says I'm walking again. Gah.) #mymorningrun #throughadifferenteye #seenotherwise #acreativepractice #coastalview #cornersofmyworld #searchwandercollect #slowlived #outdoorsandhappy #oftheeveryday #ofsimplethings #smallmomentsofcalm #beheiter #astillmoment #colourmygreyday
