For the Blogging A to Z Challenge this month, I’m going to post a different letter of the alphabet every day. I’m trying to stick to the theme of “Things I Love.”
I love things that wake up the creative part of my brain.
Pinterest is strangely good for this. I love browsing quotes, interesting places, ideas for journaling, and drawing tips. There’s a fine balance with this though. While it can help me get un-stuck, I can also get sucked into the black hole and end up wasting time.
Drawing and coloring also make me feel creative. I’m not the best at drawing, but I enjoy it, and doodling does give my brain time to get into that creative space.
I used to wait around to feel creative, but it’s true that if I sit down at my computer and don’t allow myself to browse Pinterest, Facebook, email, webcomics, or the million other things that are waiting to distract me, I tend to feel more creative. Sometimes it just takes a moment to sit, breathe, and remind myself to be where I am.
What makes you feel creative?
