I hope that all our readers have had a creative and prosperous Christmas and new year.
New year is often a time for taking stock and reviewing the direction your life is going. For us creative types that review usually includes the resolution to “make more art”. Sometimes, we do too.
Very soon, we will be restarting our events for writers and creatives. For those people who live near enough – and have the right evening free – these events might be what you need to stimulate making more art.
For the rest of us, here are some crazy, interesting, and realistic ideas.
