Today is the last day of the first month of the year. The last day of the first month of my 365 photo project and the last day of the first month (though I started early) of my “Create something every day project.” I feel I should have something profound to say about all the stuff I learned, and that I should have all these great things I created this month to show off.
Well, I don’t.
That doesn’t mean this project is a failure and it doesn’t mean that I haven’t learned anything or created anything. Far from it. Maybe it hasn’t been the blockbuster success I want it to be, I haven’t started to make these amazing photos, I haven’t started work on those short stories I want to write, I haven’t drawn more than a few doodles at work, but I have worked on things, I have learned some things, and more importantly, I’m creating habits.
I hope I can kick things up a notch in February. I’d like to actually plan some photography adventures (and I want to shoot pictures of some people), I definitely want to write more, and I’d like to start exploring a few other creative avenues.
January could have gone a lot better, but the year and this project is not off to a bad start.
