This month I will be part of a new challenge: NaNoJouMo by Dawn deVries Soko. She started it as her own version of NaNoWriMo = National Novell Writing Month which is held during the month of November. NaNoJouMo = National Nonstop Journaling Month is about just getting into your journal and making a mark, no matter how small it is, no matter what you use to make that mark.
Dawn says: “Each day during November, I will post a word to get you art journaling. A journal jump of sorts—one word a day to inspire or get you thinking. The goal is to journal SOMETHING in your art journal. DOESN’T HAVE TO BE A FULL PAGE…can be a doodle, maybe painting some backgrounds, doing some collage…just SOMETHING every day in your art journal during November. Even if it’s just moving a pencil across the page in a crooked line…
This year’s NaNoJouMo prompts are song titles from Dawn’s playlist:
“These are songs that inspire me, that get me going and in a zone. These are also songs that you can pull lyrics from to use as inspiration, maybe the tune itself inspires you, maybe it leads you to inspiration from somewhere else entirely.”
