I started a blog to try and sort some ideas out, and maybe draw some pictures. I didn’t really think about reading blogs: I already have a feed reader. So the joy of reading tags came as a complete surprise.
Scrolling through a world-wide selection of cartoons, drawings and photos has been a real eye-opener. I learnt about photo trends like light field photography (play with pics here) and HDR. Yes, I guess I have been living under a rock… A friend showed me a friend’s website:
Nor did I know about flash fiction: my first contact was Laura of 100000 words. Then I came across the challenges, and suddenly I’m writing again. Restriction does spur creativity. Try these:
- The weekly photo challenge
- The story challenge (and more)
- The 100 word challenge – come on: you can write 100 words!
- The list challenge – write, paint, anything goes.
Try it: you are an artist too! Wanna make a bet?

I agree. We’re all capable of creating something.
So we are.
I like your drawings, especially Carousel, or Blue Jay Way. Blue :-).
