What bothers you? What really gets under your skin?
What do you do?
*** Remember to use whatever form of creativity you are comfortable with. If you are a writer, you can write about yourself or one of your characters. ***
In the month of June make a daily effort to face your creative fears. Challenge yourself to step outside of your comfort zone and try new things. Take your creativity in a direction that you may have thought was out of your reach.
Because sometimes you don’t know how long your arms are until you try to reach for something you thought was too far away.
Take some risks. Write that memoir. Write the essay that has been on your mind for a long time. Write the poems you have been afraid to write. Try a different art medium. Take the pictures you have dreamed of taking. Try a new art form. Challenge yourself to journal, draw, or blog every day. Write the lyrics that you haven’t written for fear no one would get it. Start that novel that you’ve always wanted to write and work on it every day. Create a character that challenges and even scares you.
Don’t let fear keep you in your comfort zone.
No one has to see what you are working on but you. You are accountable to yourself. Prove to yourself that fear is not going to stop you from taking your creativity to the next level.
Read a poem, preferably one you have never read before, and create something from how it makes you feel and the images it brings to your mind.
