Ways to be Creative

We are now past Groundhog Day; so at most, six weeks of winter. Here, we have had 60 degree temperatures, and none below 40 for some time. Still, with Spring comes everything new, and possibilities. Everyone can have a Renaissance. So, here are 33 Ways to Stay Creative, sent to me anonymously via snail mail;



1. Make lists

2. carrry a notebook everywhere

3. try free writing

4. get away from the computer

5. be otherwordly

6. quit beating yourself up

7. take breaks

8, sing in the shower

9. drink coffee/tea

10. know your roots

11. listen to new music

12. be open [as my husband says, "once a philospher, twice a pervert"

13. surround yourself with creative people

14. get feedback

15. collaborate

16. don't give up

17. practice, practice, practice

18. allow yourself to makemistakes

19. go somewhere new

20. watch foreign films

21. count your blessings

23. take risks

24. break the rules

25. do more of what makes you happy

26. don't force it

27. read a page of the dictionary

28. create a framework

29. stop trying to be someone else's perfect

30. got an idea? write it down.

31. clean your workspace

32 have fun

33. finish something

My hand is bothering me again, so I'm sorry for any typos, but the spirit is there. Today is the 4th memorial for my mother; it will be a difficult day. I thojught of something with something positive that she would approve of. Take care.
