Diva Challenge #150 - One Little Word

In various places abound the Internet I have seen people choosing a word that they would like to practice throughout the year. I've been pondering a few words and thinking about which one I would choose. Within the first week of the new year, I chose a word and did a little doodling with it, then wasn't sure that I wanted to use it. Thought perhaps it needed to be more spiritual, or more meaningful or "deep". I meant to create a blog post with it but didn't. I was supposed to do more with the doodles but I didn't. When the Diva gave us the challenge this week to use our "one little word" in a ZIA or a tile, I realized that procrastination was fast becoming my not so "little" word.

My word for this year is ACTION yes I need to stop procrastinating and dreaming and start putting things into action. Start making dreams become a reality.
ACTION is such a proactive word. It sounds busy. It sounds like things are getting done.

 "Talk Is not a substitute for ACTION."


Thanks for checking in......

Great word choice. And what a lovely piece. Your letters are wonderful. I'm very new to Zentangle and letters are still tough for me. Thanks for sharing. I learn a lot from studying the works of others.

My word is CREATE. This is my third year doing the one word thing. I've loved it in the past. It totally works for me. I can't wait to see what this year brings. Especially now that tangling will be part of it.

Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful new year.

Thank you all for your lovely comments. I am glad I did not continue to procrastinate and not post it at all. After I posted it on the linky, I went to look at some other artists work they were pretty good. I started comparing. Yikes I need to stop that.

Lovely work, boy, do I relate to your share and word choice. Action is a great goal. Moving beyond expectations and perfection to take an action is a wonderful goal for 2014!
