What's Your New Creative Habit?

Those are boxes to check off - feel free to print out the image to keep on track!

Research shows that it takes only twenty-one days-in-a-row of doing something to make it a "habit."

January seems like a perfect time to bring this to life: What's a creative habit YOU want to have?

Is it to draw for an hour a day?

Or maybe draw one scene a day?

Or is it to write for an hour a day?

Or maybe write one new scene a day?

Or is it a character study a day?

Or a character diary entry a day?

Or to brainstorm a new picture book idea a day?

Or to write a new poem a day?

My friend April Halprin Waylan writes a new poem a day, every day. It's inspiring.

And even though I've tried to get into this habit before, I'm going to try to write for one hour a day. Every day. Starting today. It's January 10, 2017. I should have that new creative habit by January 31, 2017.

What's your new creative habit going to be?

Illustrate and Write On,
