A Week of Words

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:

week of words book 1Day 4

Still dark

Hungry, need breakfast

Unlock the shop

Finally daylight

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).
