No Fear Creativity Challenge – Final Day… or is it?

Take a look back on all that you have created this month.

How have you stepped outside of your comfort zone? How have you tried new things? Where did you take risks?

It doesn’t have to stop here. Continue to take risks in your creativity. It doesn’t have to be perfect. This is primarily about the process.

Surprise yourself.

If you keep doing the same thing the same way you will keep getting the same results.

Dip your feet in the pool outside of your comfort zone if only to see if the water is nice.

You’ll never know until you try.

Spring into Creativity 1/30

Take a walk with your creativity.

Where are you going? What are you thinking? How are you feeling?

What do you see? Hear? Smell?

Everyone’s path is different.

Describe yours. Use whatever method of creativity that comes naturally to you.

Creativity Sundays: Expand your vocabulary!!!

No matter what you method of being creative, it is always very important to expand your vocabulary. You can never know too many words.

Granted, as a writer, it is possible to use too many complicated words when simple ones will do. However, you still should know the complicated ones and what they mean.

Wordplay is fun. Creating art based on a new word is fun.

Here are some words you may or may not know. Attempt to use a few of the ones you aren’t familiar with in your next creative project or add them in to a current project.

Want to find new words on your own?

  • Get a dictionary app or follow one on social media. Most post words of the day.
  • Open a dictionary to a random page and pick out a word you don’t know.
  • Take words you do know and look them up in the thesaurus for alternatives you may not have thought of.
  • Learn a new language.
  • Keep your eyes and your ears open.

Creativity Sundays – What is Creativity?

What is creativity?

What does it mean to you?

When I think of creativity I think of:

  • it is characterized by originality
  • innovation
  • setting prototypes
  • it is primal
  • imaginative
  • unique
  • inventive
  • authentic
  • revolutionary
  • instinctive

I don’t think there is one definition that works for everyone.

Begin your process by exploring your creativity.

What does creativity mean to you? How do you express it?
