You could wake up at the same time and eat the same breakfast every day, or you could let your waking hours be a little more sporadic and eat only on the occasion should you feel like it.
The perfect morning routine. Every Youtuber’s got one, and everybody’s got their own morning routine; There’s no one method that overtakes the rest.
So while we might be looking for shortcuts that fit everyone else, it might be more worthwhile to find what works for us instead.
What better way to experiment with your work and get valuable feedback than to share it in a space dedicated to beginning a creative practice?
You could create your own, and it only takes a few friends to get started.
Or you could join one and meet new people.
I’ve been working on a project for this exact purpose with my good friend Mikayla Koo, and it’s called the Habit Factory.
It’s fun, it’s playful, and it’s for creatives like us who are looking to take the next step forward.
I can’t share the website since it’s not ready yet, but I thought it would be too selfish to keep the news all to myself.
We’ll be sharing more information on it soon, so those of you who want to join us can be updated.
The medium and the platform.
It doesn’t matter what we put on the piece of paper, because the paper and pencil don’t know what they’re being used for. There are no written rules of pencil and paper, just as long as the idea gets out (and even then, that’s not a requirement).
Like pencil and paper, the internet and social media has created another world for artists and creatives like us.
And on the other end, it’s like how cavemen did mark-making except now we don’t have to risk our lives and walk miles to appreciate the marks of others.
So now in the safety of our homes we can enjoy the the given platform, which is the internet, while making our marks as modern day people.
