[Reverb10] Make

I woke up this morning and read today’s prompt: December 6 – Make. What was the last thing you made? What materials did you use? Is there something you want to make, but you need to clear some time for it? (Author: Gretchen Rubin)

I am not a maker.

I am not crafty. Nor can I draw.  I cook sometimes but nothing extraordinary.

I thought about it all day. I studied. I applied for jobs. I looked around my apartment for things I’ve made.

Besides a mess?


Except for plans.

And mistakes.

I am not a maker but I admire those who are.

I do take pictures but I don’t think I can say I made any of my photography.

Bring on Day 7 Reverb10.

  1. yeah, it took me awhile to come up with something for today’s prompt. i mean, it’s good to challenge myself in my writing. i know that. but… meh.


    1. I like the challenge. Just not when I feel like I can’t contribute anything. <3


  2. Your photographs are beautiful! That is most definitely creating something.

    My post? I created a Facebook page for my blog since it’s been over two years and I just hate self-promotion and I also made spanakopita for my friends yesterday evening. I mean, not too exciting. Nothing too crafty, but I still used my hands. I used my creativity (that is to each their own) to start something.

    I also think we mistake “making” with being an artsy type. Making can even be writing a Christmas card or a letter, making someone smile or even writing as your form (you have a blog and do so much of that).

    Not nada 🙂 I think you’ve got lots xo


    1. Aww, thank you!!

      Yes, I agree. Thanks for helping me get out of my own head 🙂

      You made me smile!


  3. Don’t sell yourself short. I agree with Grace that “making” doesn’t have to be art focused. If you made someone smile today, you made something. 🙂


    1. I do try to make as many people smile as I can in a day. Thank you 🙂


  4. Interesting post! I still haven’t written my for today yet. I kind of had similar thoughts to you. Other than the occasional food prep, I don’t feel like I make much of anything. I do write occasionally…

    I may have to take the prompt literally. In that case, I will probably end up writing about food!


  5. I enjoyed this! I have not written my yet, I had to drop the critic that took over about not being creative! 🙂


  6. The only thing I made last night was a plan to complete my finals, though, I suppose that’s more productive than creative.


  7. I would definitely considering photography “making.” I mean, you’re using a tool and skills to make a photograph. I always considered my art to be my writing because I’m so not artistic! I haven’t progressed my artistic skill since I was about 8.
