I have decided to start to write more here because I believe the more I write the easier it will be to write. I just want to kick off the new year with a practical creative habit. 

In my writing I have periods where I write a lot and periods where I barely write at all. I find that when I hook a lot I get better. Ideas flow more easily. I am going to try to write in the same way I hook. Just let it flow. 

So I will not wait for the new year.

There will be no beginning.

Instead it will just be a continuance.

I will start from here. No waiting for the right time. 

Why wait when you can begin. 

I might wait for something else. Something I have to build a commitment to. 

Something I do not look forward to. 

I love to read my old writing. The old blog posts here from years ago. 

Once I have written them I am glad. 

Sometimes I read things over and I remember. 

Sometimes I read things over and see how I have grown . 

These writings will be right off the cuff. 

I want to write from the spirit inside me that wants to write. They will be done in the moment because that is the only way I do it well. 

Maybe these will be a conversation. Maybe sometimes I will ask a question. Right now I am wondering…

Are there practical creative habits that you need to start?

What if you hooked everyday , what would happen?

  1. Hooking for me is my passion. However owning a shop, I have to spend time doing things that I know will sell, and Rugs are far and few between. that is so sad to me. In my brain I think everyone should hook, or love hooked rugs. 🙂 I love and do many other primitive arts, but my passion is in my rugs. So what if I hooked everyday? I try to say ok Janet, just hook this pile of strips, then move on to something else. 3 hours later I’m still hooking. ooopppps! Sooooo the question for me is; When do I stop hooking?
    I love to read your posts. Sometimes they change the course of my day.
    Hope you are feeling better from your fall.


  2. Deanne your writing and your commitment to your art have been an inspiration for me since I first found your rug hooking shop….your blog writing is poetry in my view, your hooking a developing art stream that flows gently with this poetry….Please know that your work is helping many of us in many ways, and I am most grateful!!! May 2017 bring you a peaceful creative space in time.


  3. Thank you so much, Deanne. Your hooking AND your writing give me a feeling of peace…feeling connected to so many people that I haven’t met but who share similar perspectives with mine
