I can’t tell you how many times I have sat down with a great project or idea that I wanted to start only to find out that:
a) I didn’t have the time for it
b) I put it on my to-do list, but never got around to it or
c) I completely forgot about the idea and when I remembered, too much time had gone by for me to care.
I’m actually pretty sure that this happened to me just a couple of months to go except the reason I didn’t pursue it was because I didn’t have the resources – (d)
Sparkapalooza is a fantastic blog for those that want to put their creativity to good use. Maybe you don’t have an idea at the time or you don’t have a due date to complete it, but the blog provides both of those things. Sparkapalooza announces various briefs every so often with the due date. Users are then invited to submit their original pieces. The current brief entitled “Up in the Air” will be due January 17.
