About our blog:
Making It Daily is a shared blog. In 2013, Claire, KHP and Kristen R. launched this blog as a way to track ourselves as we tackled three different 365 projects:
Claire: Wrote every day
KHP: Made art every day
Kristen R: Ran every day
We did these things every day for one full year. And now, we use this blog as a way to stay connected to another.
Although we still each carve out a little time every week to do these things, we take turns posting occasionally. We're busy working moms, partners, runners, writers, artists and more -- just trying to make it daily.
Got a passion? Join us in making it daily.

Last week, my post https://makingitdaily.wordpress.com/2013/01/23/claire-call-me-crazy/ was written from the depths. I’m impressed that I was able to write at all. I don’t want to be cavalier about depression, so I want to follow up and present some of the facts … Continue reading
The thing about saying you’re going to do something every day is that you are absolutely accountable. At least, you are if you’re me and you say it out loud. To actual people. Especially the kind that will hold you … Continue reading
Well here it is, the moment you all have been waiting for, my first print (kind of) complete. I pulled my test print this morning in my kitchen while Matt and the kids snuggled and watched a movie. I did … Continue reading
I have one main goal in all of my writing. There’s a scene in the graphic novel Maus, Volume II where Art Spiegelman is complaining to his wife about all the challenges of his complex writing/drawing project, and she replies, … Continue reading
Over the course of any given week, I have at least 87 different topics I want to write about. I email myself these ideas when they strike: while cooking dinner; walking to my car; before I pull out of the … Continue reading
