Some folks designed the world to operate around their artistic endeavors. Their writing and art comes first, which is incredible. But for many of us, we lead lives that are so busy, so overwhelming, and so emotionally taxing that we put our personal creative needs to the side to get the work done.
When we finally break away from life for creative time, it envelopes like a bear hug from an old friend. Our time spent on creative pursuits--writing, photography, painting, gardening--is not just time well spent, it is the time we need to wash off the dust from the workaday world and refill our creative wells.
Paint & Ink~Book
A terrific first step to awakening one’s creativity is to journal. By journaling, we allow ourselves to write, think, and feel without pressure to be perfect. We do not have to worry about constructing stories that will be published or even seen by others. While journaling, we can create the writing that will allow us to explore and experiment. When a person has not written or been creative in a while, journaling can be just the thing to reignite the creative spark.
