Use your body to create a sound #thejanuarychallenge #64millionartists #pages. I’d already done a video for this challenge but I noticed this interesting sound while I was doing my ‘pages’. I write ‘pages’ most days. They are loosely based on Julia Cameron’s directions in the book ‘The Artist’s Way’. Julia has specific instructions but I’ve adapted to do them in a way that suits me. For example Julia says that you MUST write three A4 pages long hand on paper and then stop. Well at the moment I write them on my phone and save them in docs (simpler than using an app). I write at least 750 words which is the equivalent of three pages but often write more once I get going. I chose this because then I don’t have to carry around one more thing and I can text pretty fast. I get into a rhythm and I don’t have to worry about what to do with the physical books that I would otherwise be piling up (because I’m trying to keep my physical space clutter free). I think as artists it is our prerogative to adapt instructions to suit ourselves. Actually as people it is our prerogative because we are all creative by nature and have the power to choose.
