Creativity. I’ve been packing in too many things lately.
Funny, how that stifles creativity. So the better part of this week, I’ve been crossing things off the to-do list with glee. Haven’t written, just brainstorming plot for the next big section that’s coming up–and doing most of that subconsciously.
It’s been a week of vivid action dreams, the kind that last a couple of hours in between the slaps to the snooze alarm. And last night I had more fun gaming than I’ve had in about a month–a font of ideas and witty sayings.
Creativity: taking what you’ve learned and turning it into something else. This takes more time than you’d think, more empty time. –I’ve gone the other way, too, losing creativity because of too much empty time, but I hadn’t realized there was this balance. The best creativity isn’t for yourself, or isn’t solely for yourself, but shared. You can do anything creatively–like zen with sparkle, mindfully done.
You know, I think I got tired of logical sentences somewhere in the middle of this post 🙂
