I loved waking up each morning, knowing there was going to be a directive, that I needed to follow. Someone telling me what to do, instead of me telling me what to do.
Often, I wasn’t sure of how I was going to accomplish the specific task for the day. I eventually learned, that if I could let all of my focused intentions go, my creations were the most successful. Sometimes, I felt that what I had created, was going to have to be good enough, because I had nearly run out of time to post. That was the most scary! The support from other Creative Sprinters, Instagram-ers and Facebook followers gave me great encouragement!
My favorite day was when we were asked to collaborate with another Creative Sprinter. I picked @lauraandthings. We had a very emotional conversation that connected me to a part of my life in the past that I had experienced, that she was experiencing in her life now. I am now a firm believer in the notion that we are all connected!
Having finished 30 days of Creative Sprint, I feel I am more successful and freer in my design process. I understand that what I see, others don’t and that sometimes, it is okay to embrace the imperfections you see in the end result so that you can release your creative work and share it.
