What if you knew your next creative project will have at least three mistakes in it when you're done no matter what? Will you create it anyway?
These are questions I asked myself as I won the wish bone break at Thanksgiving. I totally missed wishing a wish because I default to questions to feed my curiosity. I also missed NaNoWriMo, but ignore it every year anyway. That is, until this year when I reasoned: "I don't have a novel in me, but I do have a novel way of tapping into my imagination that can help inspire others!"
So that's how this "experience" materialized.
I call it an experience rather than a book because it's not mere words on a page. It's two decades of creative incubation, works-in-progress, and COVID pressure which unleashed itself in a watershed moment. I consider it the pinnacle of my career. And if you think pinnacle is a game played with 48 cards, you're in good company.
Yes, this illustrated experience is intended as a daily ADVENTure, packed with humor, wit, coaching, lessons, ponderables, and projects to steep in like finely-brewed creativi-tea. Actually, it can be steeped in during any month with 25 days if you ignore all the Christmasy-stuff.
If you choose to engage in this experience, you'll become my creative collaborator. I can't exactly tell you how, but at some point it will happen and you'll just know.
If you're not transformed creatively in at least some small way after immersing in this experience, then let's talk.
I know this creative project has at least three mistakes in it, but I made it anyway. And I learned that revisions are like the song that never ends. So, here's to letting go. Plus, there's bonus material*, and who can resist that?

She's giving away free copies of her newest project, ADVENTure Christmas Count-Up. This 44-page "adventure" is a purposeful prance through 30 days of fictional fun, practical practicing, and playful perspectives with bonus material designed to inspire and delight.
"I know Christmas is over," Dunmire laughs. "But this experience works during any month with 25 days. It's designed to demonstrate that creative projects and collaborations can bring along unexpected twists and turns anywhere along the way all year long."
