Letters for Creatives #50: 1 year anniversary

I can't believe it but we are here

Hello, I am Celeste. If you would like to receive Letters for Creatives, subscribe to receive weekly letters on creativity, mental wellness, mindset and more. Take a look at September prompts if you are looking for writing inspiration and get featured in the letter in September.

It has been almost a year since I started writing letters to you every Thursday. It was 5 September, 2020 when this project started. I had no idea how to keep writing to you every week. There are only be so much cliche advice I can give in terms of creativity. It was such a ride to go from not having any idea to writing 2 or 3 letters every week to keep everything under control and not being late to your mailbox.

Huge thanks to David for the advice to put weekly poem in each letter and adding different sections for each letter.

Shoutout to Zainab, Samantha, Sandra, Steve, Karen, Jo, Victoria, Shae, Katy, Jen, Ariel, Luna and Emily for enriching the poetry section of this letter. I am never going to get over your talent in writing and storytelling. Thank you.

What are days for?
Days are where we live.
They come, they wake us
Time and time over.
They are to be happy in:
Where can we live but days?
Ah, solving that question
Brings the priest and the doctor
In their long coats
Running over the fields.

— Days by Philip Larkin
