I have not written a blog yet, but I thought I give it a try. Also, I'm fairly new to The Art Colony, but have never encountered such a wonderful group. By accident, I found The Art Colony, when I posted a question online and was led to this site. The comments and assistance I get from other artists are so encouraging.

I am taking part in the 30 Day Journal Challenge this month. While I have been keeping a journal since I was ...okay, a long time now, it is the first time that I am taking part in a journal challenge.
I am enjoying it a lot, but the timing is not good. As a writer I am preparing to take part in NaNoWriMo in November, and I am also busy writing a book on Creative Journaling for Everyone. Most people associate creative journaling with art and artists and they won't be wrong.

Sorry about not being around. I was really busy, then I was on holiday last week and thought the apartment had wi-fi and I would be able to catch up on all sorts of things on my laptop with a seaview - but I was wrong and had no internet at all. Now I'm back but apparently because I turned everything off while I was away including my router I now have internet at 1990s speeds because my ISP thought I had a problem with my line and this would help!
I will catch up as soon as I am…
