Life of Art SitRep #13

A series to mark what I did to further my pursuit of a life sustained by my art each week. Committing to these posts is a commitment to action, because to have content for them, I have to do something. Every week. If you have any sort of goal you're pursuing, feel free to share your efforts of the past week in the comments. Or encouragement, that's good too.

What did you do to pursue the life you want this week?

A year ago on TTaT: Mio fratello


  1. Wow. This post makes me feel a tad unproductive--so consider my envy a form of encouragement!

    What I did do last week: spent a few hours hashing out draft two of the current novel, did a reading/talk to share the last one, started reading a book that may inspire a future one?

  2. Oh, don't feel unproductive! My list may seem long, but I give myself credit for the small stuff and I'm still working out how to be effective.

    Yay for your efforts! Reading totally counts. Technically, drawing shouldn't be on my list, but it ties into the underlying though intangible emotional sustenance of art which I also want to characterize my life.
