Thank you for the inspiration, Nina! Finally got myself a sketchbook just for daily practices... looks like it may be 'sketch only' because this paper weight isn't much - it MIGHT be able to hold a bit of water... but it's good to play with ink and pencils again.

Yaaay Lisa! Sooo happy to read this :) I agree, it's totally excellent to squeeze as much play into the day as possible. Creative play can be so hard to swallow (I know it is for me) so yeah, let's just keep doing it :) I can't wait to see what happens in your sketchbook!

Thank you for your comment and being game!

Hi Nina, You are not only a creative artist but writer as well. I really enjoyed reading about your journey, exploring so many opitions for creative notebooks with various watercolours, pens, pencils etc. I'm very new to substack and don't really get the 'note' or 'chat' options, I just post on a note but seem to get into difficulty finding my posts lol. I do love to paint and draw but have been out of it for awhile cos I've been focusing on writing and so for me, it's my daily creative practice. This year my aim is 250 words a day and one would think that's not many words at all, yet my first real poem is 215 words. The nice thing about poetry is that there are no real word limits so I will go with the flow on writing what feels right. It's lovely to connect with you on Substack and thanks so much for following me as well. Sending you love and light 🩷

Thank tou soooo much Connie! πŸ™πŸ’– It's so nice to receive feedback so I am very grateful to you for taking the time to read and writing back too.

I agree with you, writing is a great daily creative practice and I hope you publish your poems here when you feel ready.

When I post my posts I write them on the computer and there's "new post" button under dashboard screen. I think it says new post, I'm on my phone now 😁

There's also a space in settings where you turn on or off your own notes and chats from your profile page so that they can be accessed from your main page too. Have a look around mine and see how it looks like, you might get an idea of what I'm talking about.

Wishing you a wonderful Sunday and a lovely week ahead πŸ’–
