Episode 177: What You See

Amy Featured | Podcast

The first in a new series of short episodes, looser in feel, but the same spirit an energy of the CMP. This is the grown-up version of the CMP – 2016.

Challenge: Try the daily journal page described, inspired by Lynda Barry’s Syllabus: Notes from an Accidental Professor, paying special attention to the “saw” side of the page.

Podcast not currently available. (What’s this?)

The Creativity Matters Podcast is an affiliate. Links are provided for convenience to help you find/see/explore the books, tools, and resources I talk about. Using the library, when possible, is always my first recommendation for reviewing books firsthand.

  1. Thanks for the shoutout to let me know you were podcasting again. I saw it on FB a day or two ago and just went to iTunes to listen. I am thrilled as your podcast is so inspiring! I am also avoiding the audio version of 100 Years of Solitude and your podcast is an excellent reason to do so! ;-)

    This was a great episode. I love the familiar snippets of audio (your kids, the gong, your tagline) and was fine with no music and the loose feel. I was also excited about the book you recommended. How do you find such great books??? I am pleased that my library has it. I am going to borrow it and see where it takes me. I journal every day – more prose, but I have lists and drawings, too. I have been working on seeing my world, especially the little things, and the idea of writing down the things that strike me in my journal is a good one.Usually I post photos to Instagram. I always worry about what is missing from my journal in the whole picture of my life.

    I also wanted to say that I have a pack of shipping tags in my desk drawer. You inspired me to buy them with your daily bird drawing. I haven’t drawn on them yet as that is not my thing…yet, but they are there and make me think of you. Also, I just ended the Creative Prompt Project on my blog and that was also inspired, in part, by listening to your podcast.

    1. Thank you, Jaye. So glad you had a chance to listen, and that you found a copy of the book. Writing down what we notice in the day helps us really tune in.
