I'm doing a thing. Each day of December on instagram I'm posting a scribble suggestion.
Scribbling breaks your hand free of the muscle memory of daily life, and is 'unproductive', so it helps break you free of the muscle memory of thoughts and explore new paths. So why not give it a go this December. Some thoughts before I post the list of prompts:
1) Take as little or as much time as you have (unless suggested otherwise). No need for fancy materials. I’d only encourage you to not scribble on an electronic device and to try to scribble rather than draw - i.e. not intentionally forming shapes or images.
2) The list is sort of daily prompts - the more time-consuming prompts are on the weekends. But do the same one every single day if you want, combine them, whatever floats your pencil. I’ll post prompts daily on instagram, and the full list is below.
3) Take photos of your scribbles. Tag them #scribblemas. Let us know which techniques were kind of meh for you, and which made you smile. Keep them all as a record for yourself to compare at the end.
4) Above all, in this season of busyness and tiredness, play. Play like you did when you were a small child. There is no right or wrong. There is no such thing as a bad scribbler. You have permission.
