Hey guys and dolls.

This is my creative process blog.

Want to play along?

All you artists on Medium and my Facebook list, friends and family, acquaintances and clients, writers group buddies, painters, sculptors, musicians, filmmakers, writers, comics artists, collage artists, and you who want to make a daily appointment with your creativity:

You may check in here in the comments. Report what you’re working on and how it’s going. Ask or answer questions. Post an excerpt or synopsis. Or just read along while you do your work.

A while back I started a process blog for drawing, but I wasn’t able to keep it up at the time. Now, I believe I can start today, June 1st, and work on my writing and other creative endeavors at least a little bit every day from now on. For me, that’s huge. I intend to make the most of this opportunity by keeping a daily creative appointment with myself. I always did better making it down to the Town Lake trail to walk when I scheduled it with one of my neat lady bodyworker walking buddies, Cameron, Liz, Kim, or Cheryl. So, I’m inviting others along here, too.

Maybe start your own process blog on Medium or Facebook or other platform and let’s follow each other and link to each other.

I’m working on one screenplay, one novel, and one graphic story. I’d like to focus on these three, create a timeline, and systematically work toward finishing them. They’re interrelated. Each one helps me write the others.[This little paragraph is an example of a possible post, or the beginning of one.]

I imagine the daily posts will be short sometimes and take any number of forms:

“Aha” moments about personal creative process and how to proceed.

An excerpt from the work of the day.

A mini-report on the work of the day.

A drawing or doodle.

A question to readers about your own creative process.

A question to myself about a creative problem.

But I’m open to seeing where the blog wants to go.

Please play along in any way you like.
