Greetings fellow creators.

The title of this piece says it all.

Author and artist Malaka Gharib shares these tips:

  1. Set an Extremely Tight Deadline      She suggests a word count or a time limit.

  2. Take Advantage of How Little Time You Have.

  3. When You Don’t Know Where to Start, Look Around.     Okay, go ahead, call it ‘eavesdropping’ or ‘spying’. Hey, no malice intended. You’re just trying to be an artist!

  4. Draw On Your Memories (Or Just Draw Your Memories)     Think of how evocative the old family album can be. Tap the power of those photos in your mind.
