Ever notice how creativity has a way of coming and going? And when it goes, it always seems to be at the worst possible moment, such as when your book is due.
Or when it WAS due. Weeks ago.
But I’ve discovered a sure fire way to spark creativity, even at its most elusive: the Creative Change Up.
There are so many ways to be creative, so when one outlet stops up, find a new one. For me, other outlets include:
Doing any of these things gets my mind off of my writing, giving me a much needed break. My focus is on different things–how my calligraphy pen is angled, the composition of the shot–and I’m working different creative muscles. When I come back to writing, I feel more relaxed and refreshed. And the words always seem to flow.
So next time you feel stuck, try a Creative Change Up. Shoot, even animals benefit. Just check out the happy little fellow below!
How about you? What other ways have you found to express creativity?
