A quick summary of the June blog posts (not including Patreon posts).
The starred posts have variants on art and writing exercises and games I often use (tags: writing exercise, art exercise) although, since many of the other posts — especially the observation journal posts — are about process anyway, you can use them as the basis for activities.
