Meet the Maker: Day 15
Day 15: Motivation/Goals
How fitting that this would be today’s prompt. I spent the afternoon creating graphics and scheduling posts with motivational quotes. I’m a big fan of sharing quotes and I’ve found that they’ve been helpful for me as well (I usually forget which ones are coming up since I do them in advance).
I also have been reflecting on my current motivation and goals today. It feels like a lot of my goals right now are more long term or dependent on funding that’s not there yet, so my motivation has been a little low lately.
Last year at this time I was deep into research for my 50 NY Waterfalls project, working on a concept painting commission, and planning two cross-country roadtrips.
This year feels a lot different without these big things on the horizon. More of my focus has been writing blog posts and things behind the scenes and less about getting into the studio and creating new work.
Today I decided that I need to get back into the routine of creating everyday, even if it’s just a small step. Once I get started and get over blank page paralysis my motivation generally comes back.
