I bought myself a new sketchbook the other day for a project that I want to start.
I couldn’t figure out where to begin so I decided to fall back on my favourite way to break the new notebook spell.
If I catch myself saving a notebook to use for “something really good”, I fill the first page with the words “Let’s start by ruining it” and then I add some doodles around them. Sometimes I also put a big line down the middle of the page.
Don’t worry, I’m not disparaging my own work here. This page isn’t ruined, it’s my idea of keeping this book for an “important” project that’s ruined… and that’s a positive thing.
