When I first heard about the Creative Sprint 30-Day Art Challenge, I figured I’d be no good at it at all. I used to draw when I was younger, but now I’m a writer. I figured anything I created would be really crappy and not worth the effort.
Then, I realized that was the point of the exercise. It’s all about realizing your own creativity—the kind that’s hidden away. The 30-Day Creative Sprint is all about realizing you can be creative in ways you never imagined.
Doing the Creative Sprint challenge has become even more important to me, now that I’m working in visual media more. In fact, I blogged before about going to the Future of Film conference. Just this past weekend, I attended a screening of short documentaries made by middle schoolers. I was simply blown away by the level of their talent.
Here are some photos from the Docs in Progress event!
The experience inspired me anew to try to make a short film, in between re-launching my mystery series, rewriting my feature film script, rewriting my TV pilot script, writing my next novel (or novella, maybe, at this rate), and writing short stories. Oh, and producing my podcast, the Crime Cafe. Right.
So, anyway, here’s Part One of my efforts in the #CreativeSprint 30-Day Challenge!
Cool, huh? 🙂
