ON CLOUD 9: OVERVIEWS AND OBSERVATIONS

O is for overviews and observations.  So far, the Afro Jazz from A to Z Challenge has been a lot of fun.  It has brought out parts of my creativity that don't always have space to breathe.



I have observed that balancing the act of creating art while writing about it is a challenge.  There are times when I am just too tired to blog.  Hence, the back up and delay on my M and L posts.  I am happy to report I am back on track now.  Someone asked,

Why don't you write out your posts ahead of time?

My answer is simply that I love the challenge of writing in real time.  I get some of my best inspiration for creative writing, right in the moment.  

The most I could do is compose an editorial calendar with suggested topics for corresponding letters.  Even that changes the day of, to something more relevant and a little more interesting. 

Since I am back on track, tomorrow can actually be a day where I create new pieces.  Perhaps, I give the male figures of Afro Jazz a try again...or not.  Ha!  

Sometimes it's best to see what kind of invitation the moment provides.  

The overall most read post at this point is: 

Hugs and High Fives for the Harlem Renaissance


This is an example of a post that came about organically.  Initially I was going for the history of one's art and the importance of documentation.  I had a rough outline and everything.  As I sat down to write, I realized I had yet to touch on the inspiration for my art and my personal inspiration as an artist.  It was just a divine blessing that the Harlem Renaissance begins with the letter H.  I am glad I let things develop on their own that day.  

This experience so far, has all been one big lesson in creative obedience.
