AEDM Day 6: Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper

juicy pens, thirsty paper

I never write in my books.  I love pristine pages, tight spines and the smell of a new book.  The thought of dog-earring a page or making notes in the margin makes me shudder.

That being said, SARK’s book “Juicy Pens, Thirsty Paper” just beckoned for bright markers to dance all over it.  So, I got some juicy pens and filled out page 80 – the list of reasons why I don’t feel like writing.  There are so many things that I let get in the way of working on my book.  This was a great exercise in putting it all down.  I’m sure there are plenty more distractions and excuses (in fact I just thought of another one – I need to go exercise!).

I think these same reasons also stop me from doing art more often.  So, I’m loving being part of the Art Every Day Month Challenge as it’s helping me to just do it anyway!

Oh! I love this! I hadn’t heard of this Sark book, and I have an order sitting in my Chapters shopping cart, waiting for one more book so I can get free shipping! I love how your page turned out.

Your colorful writing is groovy. Sark’s book is yummy. It jumpstarted me when I was in a deep writer’s block.
