Using doodle art for writing inspiration was something that I had to try today. Some days you want a little extra “oomph” to get the words flowing, so I decided to explore doodle art. Now, let me confess to you that I am not an artist. I’m telling the truth, as you will soon see.
Since about age ten I knew that I wanted to write, and I have written off and on for many years. Art however, that’s another matter. Being the kid in Art class whose friends would look at me and say, “Nice try; just keep at it,” was not always fun. And no matter how hard it was, my attempts to transfer what was in front of me to paper, did not work.
My friend, Cathy, is so into her art passion that it’s great to see how she can take those abstract thoughts, and ideas, and create magic on paper. Studies show that art, music, and exercise can clear your head and get the endorphin pumping, and inspiration flowing.
“We need our Arts to teach us how to breathe” -Ray Bradbury
This quote from Ray Bradbury is a great way to feel when reading poetry, listening to music, or looking at art. You can see or hear something so beautiful that it takes your breath away.
That’s what I want…breath-taking work, and to give a little humor and insight. (This is the humor part.)
It’s always worth it to work at art, listen to music, or even exercise, to get to that place where you want to go.
After watching a couple of videos on Doodle art and other art projects, I decided I would give it a try. I own up to the fact that I still can’t draw, or doodle, a lick… but I’m not giving up. These practices are now in my arsenal to inspire more words and more creativity. You can try it to do the same.
Now that you see, how sad my ability is, I will confirm again, that I am not giving up. Art, music, and exercise are inspirations that we don’t want to miss out on.
