As writers we are constantly creating. Whether we are writing, planning our day or daydreaming, we’re constantly creating. I just want to share a couple of ideas with you to keep or get those creative juices flowing.
1. We spend a lot of time doing what we really don’t want to be doing. Before doing the usual laundry, errands, cooking etc., if you don’t already, try putting your writing first. Put it at the beginning of your list of things to do. When you are inspired to do something, you love every minute of it. It will make the other things you have to do for the day easier.
2. When you feel stuck in the moment, or in your thoughts, take a breath, breathe deeply, then come back to this moment. Just breathe! It may sound simple, but most of us don’t take the much needed long, relaxing breaths. Our days are busy, often frenzied. Make that effort to take 10 deep breaths, in through the nose and out through the mouth. Relax your body and your mind. You will feel re-energized!
3. If you find yourself getting frustrated, locked in your thoughts, unable to move forward in your writing process, write a letter to yourself. Tell yourself what you are feeling, it may help you to understand why you are stuck and alleviate the frustration. At least, with even writing a letter to yourself, you are still writing. You are still creating.
Remember, there is no desire in the future, no action in the past, but there is desire, action and promise with today!
Hope you are having a Creative Day!
