Sometimes writers are asked what they do in their spare time? Write of course!
But when I'm not writing I'm either walking the dog, playing the piano, watching TV or drawing.
I'm increasingly turning to music and art to relax. I don't know if it is the time of my life. Reflective rather than hurried, but they bring me closer to my own emotions and at the same time I feel more connected to this crazy beautiful world.
So, I thought I'd share my scribbles on www.lovelydayart.com
I've never really spoken about why I draw, paint or scribble. Sometimes I do it when I'm sad about the world. Sometimes I do it when I'm thinking about a plot. But, every time I do it I feel great.
I highly recommend picking up a pencil and scribbling. I got started years ago doing the same. Then I bought procreate for my phone and used to scribble when I was on the train or waiting for a meeting.
Love to you all, hoping you have found the thing that makes you happy. One of my scribbles below, of which you can find out how I drew them on YouTube here.
