On the other hand, I think most people have doodled at least in one point of their lives. I'm not a constant doodler, but once I get started, it's hard for me to start. Doodling is a funny thing (and a funny word, by the way) because, for some reason, when I doodle, I'm not afraid of using permanent ink. I never feel the need to erase or correct. I just keep going and work with what I end up with.
Not long ago, on my G+ feed, someone posted a link to this video, which is about a drawing technique called Zentangle. When I watched it, I was entranced. I love trying to cram in a bunch of lines in my doodling, and it was interesting to watch the pens flowing around on the page.
Zentangle is a whole technique that you're "supposed" to take classes to do, but I just used it as an inspiration to play today.
The people-pleaser in me had to really resist going back to watch the videos again so that I could do it "right." Once I got to the third attempt, it felt much more natural, and way more fun!
I think dividing up the paper into sections and creating borders for my doodles really forced me to keep going and to fill up space. So far, so fun!
