When I was younger I never really considered myself creative. I had no aspirations, hadn’t even thought about writing. I wasn’t particularly good at it at school, and as an adult, being a mother and a housewife just completely took over my life.
My mother wrote poetry (something I only discovered when I found one of her old notebooks) when she was in her teens, and was also a very good dancer (she won awards for ballet). But other than that, I’ve never been around creative people. I also thought creative types were special, like you had to be born that way.
My first experience of being creative myself happened in 2007 when I did The Artists Way for the first time, it made me believe that I could actually be a creative person *shock horror gasp* and that we all are, it’s about encouraging those skills to come out 🙂
Not many of us work well all the time. We have different moods at different times of the day. I’m ok in the mornings. I bounce out of bed looking forward to the day ahead (most days) whereas my husband can take ages to even be slightly coherent lol. We all have our best moments throughout the day. The times where you’re feeling physically and mentally at your best. So that’s the time when you will probably be your most creative. For me it’s definitely first thing in the morning. That first cup of tea before everyone else gets up 😉 Whens your most creative part of the day?
As Albert Einstein said……
Are you naturally creative? Or like me, do you have to work at it?
In Other News……..
A quick thank you to Bridget…. She really made my day when she made this blog post *blush* Glad to have been of assistance hon and good luck with the rest of the book 🙂
Sundays prompt (about a lie) ended up being a story about a house husband who’s wife is having an affair, and yesterday’s prompt, the face of tomorrow was about a girl who’s mother is an Oscar winning actress. Her mother wants her to be an actress, but, she isn’t prepared to give up the life and anonymity she currently has. Today’s prompt is what can be seen through the fog.
I really enjoyed doing the piece of Flash I did yesterday for part of the Writers Platform Building Campaign (see previous post) and I managed to get my “Out There’s” up to 14!!!!!! 🙂
Finally, I’ve got a very exciting night to look forward to…..will tell you all about it in my next post 🙂
