every time i post about this project at least one person says, "oh i wish i was doing this!" to which i reply:
♥♥♥ DO IT!!!!!!!!!! ♥♥♥
don't worry that we're halfway through the year: you'll either catch up, or, at the very least you will end the year with the answers to SIX MONTHS of interesting questions...where is it written that you have complete every project from start to finish?? (no disrespect, but your mom was WRONG about that!)
don't worry that you're "not an art journaler": yes, this project is intended as such, but you could type your answers in a word document, or write them on index cards, or put them in your diary...whatever...who says an art journaler is one specific thing? who says you're NOT an art journaler, anyway??! (maybe you're just not one *YET*!)
don't worry that you don't know how you'd answer some of the questions: start with a question that piques your interest. do another when you feel like it, and maybe another after that...no one is EVER GOING TO CHECK that you did all the questions, in order! (i PROMISE!!!)
don't worry that you'd feel uncomfortable sharing your answers: some people post theirs to the 52Q flickr group and/or their blogs, some don't. some people--including emily falconbridge--share the side of their card which bears the question, and keep their answers private...whatever feels most comfortable to you is 100% "the right way" to do it! (having said that, i've found the "sharing" part gets easier, and is weirdly liberating!)
all i'm saying is (as someone who spent a big chunk of time psyching myself *OUT* of stuff without even trying it) the next time you think, "oh i wish i was doing that!" whether it be in regard to 52Q...or art journaling...or skydiving(!)...why not let your next question be, "HEY! why am i *NOT* doing that??!"
