In working on my anxiety series, I have spent a lot of time trying to find the words, the language to convey the constant busy-ness of my brain. It seemed when I focused on it, it would just disappear. A few months ago I started writing short bullets, nothing topic-specific. Using my light table, I am making stencils of these ideas. Quite a pile is accumulating!
I am also experimenting with words in other ways, which I will show in a while, after I have worked on them a bit more.
I hope you are enjoying your summer so far. Get outside and take advantage of nature to help with overall mental health. Also remember to take some time to be creative. Research shows it’s good for your mental health too, whether you think you’re good at it or not!
