set aside some time to create

I was looking for some inspiring stuff for something else…naturally. Isn’t that the way we find new things? Anyway, I ran across this short video on creativity, and it made me think about the way I approach creativity — mostly writing, whether it’s jotting off a poem or trying to get a scene just right for a story.

In either case (and in other cases, too) — I do a lot of writing at work. Whatever the case, I found that a couple of things need to be present for me to get some creative work done. First, I need to have some time set aside, and it needs to be time dedicated to me — no interrruptions, and I need an open space without clutter and distractions. When I was a little kid, I used to be able to tune out the entire world…it’s a little harder now that I’m trying to run the world, doncha know.

  1. Very nice! I often find myself too rushed to spend time in creative thought. I need to get better at writing down my thoughts as I get them so I don’t forget later. I have blog post ideas but if I’m working and don’t at least make a quick note I forget.

  2. Thanks for posting this. A friend recently told me that I needed to explore my creative side. This is a good reminder for me to not forget those words of wisdom.

Hi! Wanna say something? Go ahead. Be nice.
