The 30-Day Challenge
In an effort to motivate myself and get a jumpstart on goals that I have in mind for the next year, I’m accepting a challenge via photographer Tim King (check out his 30-day challenge at his blog.)
The first thing that comes to mind about participating in a challenge such as this is that could be carthatic for me. With earlier blogs I’ve posted, I had been slowed down in the process because I wanted to really think out the intent and purpose of what I wanted to share and generate something somewhat meaningful, if not anecdotal for readers. It will be interesting to reflect at the end of this challenge what things I may have discovered about myself or revealed about my photography and creativity that I might not have been aware of before.
Well, since I only read about this challenge about an hour prior to this writing, I have no laid-out game plan of what I am going to be posting and sharing over the next 30 days. And I’m okay with that. As a writer I’m not one to be longwinded and I do write from the posture that an economy of well-written words is much better than filler to reach your thousand-word minimum, or whatever the essay goal may be.
The one thing that I do intend to do as I post over the coming days is to share what happens to be on mind and in my heart- a recent experience, an experience from long past, a creative point that happens to come along, reflection on current projects, and more. It might feel like shuffling a deck of cards, drawing one from the stack, and playing that card for the day. Could be interesting- can’t wait to pull the Joker…
