I had the wonderful privilege to read the very informative and personal e-book You are a Writer by Jeff Goins who writes for passion and living. This is a highly comprehensive compilation of practical tips, lessons and inspiration on believing in one’s capability, showing up on one’s important work, working for one’s passion, providing help to others, knowing the harsh truth about writing and so much more. After infusing myself in Jeff’s encouraging words comes the more “technical” aspects of getting writing on first gear which are the how-tos and tools. Reading this e-book I could feel as if Jeff is talking directly to me because his experiences and learning resonates to my inner core. This is not only a book for writers but it is also applicable to everyone fighting for their dreams. You are a Writer is simply a wonderful reminder for all of us to start and make our dreams come true today.

As an artist I am committing myself to paint something everyday starting May 1 2012 for 30 days inspired by Dana Barbieri when she commits herself to painting everyday for 30 days and Jeff Goins when he commits himself to write everyday. That simple act of commitment creates a routine and that routine becomes a habit and that habit becomes a part of you that you cannot live without. Painting one day at a time means a time well spent for myself. It means finding my inner child artist voice. It means making a lot of mistakes in order to pave way for learning. It means discipline. It is a process. I am not going to worry if I might miss a painting. I will keep painting.
