“Procrastination is the most common manifestation of Resistance because it’s the easiest to rationalize. We don’t tell ourselves, ‘I’m never going to write my symphony.’ Instead we say, ‘I’m going to write my symphony; I’m just going to start tomorrow.”
-Steven Pressfield, The War of Art
Let’s not wait until tomorrow to make and live our art. Embrace the art alive within you and believe in the little ways you can release it into the world.
Let’s pick up the pen, the pan, the brush. Let’s open our eyes, our hands, our hearts. Let’s see the fear and then laugh in his face because somebody has to. Why not let it be us?
Let’s carry on together.
Today is the final day of 31 Days of Living Art. To celebrate the last day of our series, I wanted to highlight the art you are making in your own life. It could be a portrait or a pie. Maybe it’s math homework with your fifth grader or a really clean bathroom. Maybe you are writing a book or a play or a song or a business proposal.
We want to see how you are making art in your life – for this season, right now, today. To make it a little more fun, we’ll pick two of you to win some gifts.
One winner will receive a $100 gift card to Barnes and Noble. Another winner will receive 10 copies of A Million Little Ways to read with your small group or to simply share with friends.
Here’s how to enter:
Take a photo of something showing or representing the art you’re making and/or living. Tell us about it in your post. Then, share your photo in one or both of these two ways:
1. Post the photo and description on your blog, include the graphic above in your post, then link your post up below.
2. Post your photo on Instagram or Twitter using #WeWillMakeArt. If you don’t use the hashtag, we won’t be able to find you. Womp. Include in your photo your copy of A Million Little Ways if you have it.
Links will close Saturday November 2 at 11:55 pm.
