"All of the best ideas come out of the process; they come out of the work itself."

I worked today on a practice I found online. The goal was to explore as many different ways that you can combine letters to form a word. I chose the word Monday, well, because it is Monday. The exercise forces you to get out of your comfort zone, change speeds, break the rules...which I did...a little. I didn't realize when I started how hard it would be to challenge myself to come up with more than just one way to write a word. Wait, that sounded weird, but it's true...more often than not I look at a word and see it written one way, not sure why. Maybe it's the way I've always seen the word written or maybe my mind is closed off or maybe I'm just tired? I couldn't tell you at this point, but what I can say is that this exercise really helped me begin the process of breaking that barrier and I enjoyed it. Now, I didn't do the 25 different ways that the blogger had suggested, but I did do quite a few. I think I'll continue this practice at least once a week, maybe I'll get to that 25 and if I'm really lucky 100. Although, her 100 was with only 1 letter...impressive though. For now, here is what I've got :)
