Creative 365 Project for 2016?

Jan. 1, 2016. Quick! Today's the day! Is this the year you are going to have one of those cool 365 projects? One photo uploaded to Instagram each day? One cartoon on an index card? One zentangle? A haiku? I love when people do these but I'm usually good for about a week. Then I'm all helter-skelter.

But I'm starting off this year thinking about discipline, about creative rituals. Why not a 365 project (is this a leap year? I forget)? But I need to make a decision quick or I'LL RUIN IT FOR THE WHOLE YEAR. I need something really simple, yeah. Ok, I'm auditioning "one drawing a day on a square Post-It." It's 8:45 a.m. I have the whole day to mull it over and/or complicate it in some way to guarantee failure.

Are you with me?
