In my last several posts, I've been drawing out my thoughts:
A fine mess
It isn't supposed to be easy. Don't let that stop you.
Different is not necessarily wrong.
It's easier than you think. It's also harder than you think. Paradoxes abound.
Listen first. Talk later.
It's not about the numbers. (Except when it is.)
I have loved this creative side trip and it's gotten to the point where I'd really love to try sharing my wordy sketches in a new way, perhaps by making them a little more interactive.
Last post, I brought up the idea of mailing them out -- a little side project as I work on longer term goals. Then, this morning, I was thinking about life and progress and new things -- the usual -- and I drew this into my sketchbook:
So, in the spirit of making today the day, I'd like to announce a doodle giveaway.
I'll start with today's drawing, add a little colour, then cut out the sketchbook sheet and fold it to resemble a note card. Inside the card, I'll write a short note and mail it off.
I'll plan to do, say, four more. Five in total. (If all goes well, maybe a few more.)
For each of the five doodles, I'll choose one reader to receive it. If I announce your name in one of the five upcoming posts, you'll need send a quick email to christie(at)graceisoverrated(dot)com with your mailing address (which I would never, ever share elsewhere).
See you back here on Thursday, when I'll post the first finished doodle, plus the name of the person who'll receive it.
