Before Christmas I decided to spend a week just writing whatever was in my head. I set myself parameters, the two main ones being that it was done over seven consecutive days and the writing was done three times a day – I stopped whatever I was doing to whip out my notebook and scribble.
The finished product will not necessarily make sense to everyone because it is what I was thinking or doing at the time, but that doesn’t matter. I was interested in the visuals of the words. I have used this writing to create a sample artist book that will be developed further as time goes on.
Here is a small portion from that book:
Hungry, need breakfast
Unlock the shop
Having lunch, now want to sleep
Its an interesting exercise and one I will return to at some time as this project develops. I also wonder if it could be developed further. As it stands it is a simple journal style of writing and was somewhat cathartic (I chose an up and down sort of week).
