Day 10’s challenge is pretty simple – I just needed to fill up a page with doodles. Wikipedia defines a doodle as “a drawing made while a person’s attention is otherwise occupied.”
I was a doodler throughout my school and college days. Now, I doodle in office meetings. Although some people think equate doodling to day dreaming, this is not really the case. Doodling actually helps me focus and pay more attention to what I’m hearing. If I wasn’t doodling, my mind would probably slip off out of the classroom/conference room and explore more interesting corners of the world.
Here’s my doodle for this exercise.
I’ve noticed that I often end up repeating objects/patterns in my doodles. For instance, I frequently doodle a human eye. I’m also fond of doodling the branches of a tree.
I have been reading voraciously since the age of five when I first discovered the joys of reading. I would lap up anything in print. Unrolling an emptied newspaper cone with one hand, stuffing roasted peanuts in my mouth with the other, all the while devouring the printed content on the cone with my eyes, was one of my first experiences in hedonistic pleasure.
In fact, sometimes I feel that I am on an adventurous journey through the secret dreamworld of other people's imaginations, interspersed with occasional visits to my own life to attend events like graduation, first job, marriage, and so on.
As a true-blue reader, I think I am uniquely qualified to comment on and critique other people's works of labour. I can tell exactly what puts the average reader to sleep, what sets their pulse racing, and what has them salivating for more.
