When I set out to make more in 2016, I did so with the goal of finding work and fulfilling my creative pursuits. It’s only been 29 days so far this year, but I have already learned a ton from this experiment.
I’ve been taking more pictures, making all kinds of podcasts, and writing every single day. I said I would do this project every day for a year, or for as long as I need to. I put that loophole in there specifically because I knew how much work that would be, and if I started working anywhere near full time again, it’s unlikely I would have the energy to keep up a daily pace (of posting stuff, not of making stuff).
So far this year, I have done a few really great things:
- I hit my weight goal from the middle of last year (that’s 210 lbs, down 40) at the end of this week.
- I started writing every day, taking more pictures of cool things I see, and with friends.
- I’ve found some work that should be starting quite soon.
Given all of that, and the fact that my creative endeavours aren’t going to stop right now, I am going to stop posting something here every day.
I’m planning on continuing to take more pictures (probably posted on Instagram), writing as much as I can (including on this blog), and dedicating my efforts to working more on being creative. It’s been a great year so far, and it’s only going to get better!
