Day 21 Creative Challenge – Let Creativity Flow

Sometimes when I have an artist block, or I just need a sort of release and don’t know what to do, I just let the creativity flow. It is just designating a certain amount of time to being creative. Whether it’s 10 minutes, 20 minutes, or an hour, schedule out a part of your day just for creativity. Turn off the phone, set a timer, and find a comfortable place.

Pick your medium of choose. For me, it’s usually paint and canvas, but I have also been known to go to a park with a sketchpad and a pen. Sometimes I draw nature, I let my pen wander around the page until I start to see something develop, or sometimes I just start writing and do a giant brain dump.

These small creative bursts may not always seem like much at the time, but they can actually turn into something much bigger. It’s in these small creative slots that I have developed ideas for entire series, wrote some of my best work, or even found myself discovering things about myself I wasn’t aware was there.

How much time can you spare to lend towards your creativity?

About strokeofred

I am from Kansas and I have traveled all over the world. I am an artist, and I have a business brain. I love skirts and tennis shoes. I like to get dirty and ride motorcycles. I am sensitive and I can be mean. I love nature, and believe in protecting it. I love to laugh, and feel better after a good cry. I can be stubborn and impatient. I am constantly growing. I am open and free. I look to be inspired and love to inspire. I play guitar and secretly want to play drums. I have a puppy that brings me great joy. I love hugs, cuddling, holding hands...and wrestling. I love the mountains and the beach. I have to make a pilgrimage to the ocean at least twice a year to balance myself. I believe in balance in all things. Traveling is a passion, and meeting interesting people from all over the world is the perk! I have small town values, and big city dreams. I love beer, hate wine. I believe that what you put out comes back. I believe and live by the belief of treating others like you want to be treated. I enjoy stimulating conversation, and a good sense of humor. Caffeine is my drug of choice, and coffee over chess or good conversation is my luxury. I am strong but sometimes feel small. I strive to be my authentic me.
