Fadwa Al Qasem / I Am What I Art


Hi everyone,

I'm a mixed media artist and published bilingual author. I started this podcast to motivate myself to write for at least ten minutes every day. I've been working on my novel for a couple of years now (at least), and I'm stuck at 25,000 words. So I'm hoping this will keep me accountable and get me to write, and work on my novel again. Hopefully, it will motivate and encourage you, too.

The format I'm currently using is simple. I'll share with you a quote by authors, writers, creatives, artists .. to inspire you. Then I'll share a prompt and ask you to pause the podcast and write for ten minutes or more, then come back and listen to what I wrote.

If would be nice if you leave a comment, or type DONE if you actually wrote, or even share what you wrote! I'd love to read.

Suggestions and ways to make this podcast better are most welcome.

All the artwork for the podcast episodes are my won. Visit me at www.fadwa.com to know more about me and my work.

Keep reading. Keep writing. Come back every day for more prompts.
