An Artist’s Date

This week’s challenge is from Alex:

Christmas is upon us, whether we love it or hate it, and unless you are a recluse you are probably caught up in it.   So this week I want you to make an Artist’s Date. What is it? Julia Cameron coined the phrase in The Artist’s Way.   An Artist’s Date is a commitment to a block of time, an hour or two at least, on your own, to nurture your creativity.  Your date can be as simple as going to a gallery or museum, a solitary walk, taking a photograph or doing a drawing, something you rarely do… you get the idea. So go ahead, feed your creativity and enjoy. Happy Christmas from Alex and Jude

UPDATE: We have sold out for our February Get into Print session, but still have  places on the March one.

Some festive fun – Set the timer for twenty minutes. Write a story fast including the following words:
