This is the third year I’ve signed up for the A-Z Challenge. It’s always such an exciting time as we all create and share our posts.
The last two years I haven’t had a theme but this year I thought I’d try doing one for a change.
Today is Theme Reveal Day where we all unveil our ideas for the A-Z challenge that begins in less than ten days.
I have decided to do the theme of Quotations and will create an inspirational poster combining my photos with a quotation, based on a word starting with a letter of the alphabet.
If I feel even further inspired about the quotation, I will write a poem or prose piece to accompany it.
Unlike many of you organized types, I have not written any posts ahead of time, but I did make a list of possible ideas so for me that’s planning ahead. I have always been a pantser-type writer which can often be stressful, but also exciting as I’m never quite sure how the writing will come out.
I believe there is an element of luck and magic involved along with the creativity and perseverance that is involved in any creative project.
Here is a poster I’ve created for this post using a photo I took of the backyard this morning with the sun sparkling on the snow creating interesting shadows of the trees.
I love trying to find something interesting out of the ordinary everyday things we take for granted. There is always something if you look hard enough with an artistic child-like wonder. As adults, we do tend to overlook so much with our rushing to get it all done and our “Same old, been there, done that” attitude.
