1. Drawing and sketching.
At least each week, attempt an EDM Challenge; sketch or draw during one lunch hour at work.
2. Blog, blog, blog.
Upload the week's work (what I can show others!) and explore the work of others through their blogs or websites.
3. Painting and photography.
Take a watercolor class in the spring. Visit local museums and those in other cities when I travel. Find an "art buddy" to work with. Explore macro settings particularly in the spring when things are budding, blooming, springing to life, and everyone's happy.
Dig out old pieces and update them. At least once each month, write a creative piece.
5. Track it all.
Keep a creative calendar for encouragement.
6. HAVE FUN!
Above all, remember that we live life one day, one hour, one minute at a time, and that while we work for, with, or on behalf of others, yet we must also renew ourselves in whatever fashion works for us.
