I am a Lister:
It’s an addiction. Embrace it and it becomes a way of life. Lists have the amazing ability to break down even the most complex ideas into tiny little parts so you can understand the details. Lists are simple to make, but have endless possibilities. Adding some art & design into the mix makes listing a hobby that is both productive and creative.
Creative lists are perfect for me — I’m equally right brained and left brained, so my logic side gets to have all the words written down in a neat format and my creative side gets to make that list really fun to write and look at.
My personal goal for this year is to write more and I’m excited that 30 Days of Lists will help me accomplish that goal. Writing doesn’t have to be in perfect prose, it doesn’t have to be long-form essays with perfect sentence structure. Writing is about getting your ideas out on paper, using the written word to communicate your thoughts. Listing is a great way to get your thoughts and ideas out on paper without the burden of grammar, punctuation, and all the stuff you’re ‘supposed’ to worry about when writing.
Join me and the rest of the #30Lists community this September as we once again take on the 30 Days of List challenge!
