Becoming an artist…

So I have been reading Austin Kleon's books “Steal Like An Artist” and "Show Your Work!" as well as attending workshops by Julia Cameron "The Artists Way"…etc. 

Each mentor have the same mantra: JOURNAL

Bring a notebook everywhere you go, write down inspiration, take photographs of everything, rip out pages in magazines, etc. 

I wish I started earlier until It dawned on me that I have been on Tumblr for over 4 years, and each day I spend at least a 1/2 hour posting, reposting, laughing, tearing up, angry, and LUSTING after different items. I have been Journaling!! And, so have you!! 

Exercise 1: go over past posts to find a trend, color? food? DIY Projects? Which seems to be the “one” you go to each time? That might help you weed out your strongest passion. 

Here I go……thanks for those of you who are reading this and feel just as lost as I do right now.
