Writer & Illustrators: Don't forget the fun!

Charles M. Schulz Museum, Santa Rosa

Above: Me, in the Charles M. Schulz Museum in Santa Rosa, CA.

Nearly finished final revisions to illustrations for I'M BORED (and created a new Facebook Page for I'M BORED -- if you're on Facebook, I'd appreciate it if you could Like it at http://www.facebook.com/boredbook).

Meanwhile, though, I'm still trying to do a little bit of writing and illustrating every day purely for the fun of it. Sometimes I post this publicly, sometimes I don't. I strongly feel that doing something creative & fun with your craft on a regular basis is vital. I find it helps keep me from getting in a rut, gives me a chance to experiment, and sparks new ideas.

Off to do some doodling now...

Sometimes those just for fun ideas have better results than the "work really hard" on them ideas.

I'm your 93rd fan on Facebook :) I totally agree with you that having a regular habit of practicing your craft will enhance your skills. This is especially true in the craft of writing; constant practice through fun and creative writing exercises will keep the creative juice flowing.
