I’ve never been one to set a word for the year, but last year as I looked ahead to 2014 one word was in my head: create. That word stayed with me after the new year and I decided that this year I would have a word. So I put it on the back of my bedroom door because that’s where I like to put things that I want to be reminded of. I didn’t like how I displayed it, but wanted it up and decided that I’d redo it later.
In some ways, it feels like a cop out to use the word create. Every year I want to create, but this year the word has been front and center in my mind. This year I have been more motivated than ever before to create stories and art. So I’m going with it.
