Sometimes my creative thinking dives. Because most of my work comes from creative thought, I find it annoying. Unless I do something fast, I can lose a whole day’s work in a blink of an eye.
Luckily, I have many ways to get creativity back. Inspiration can be as close as a walk in the park or as exciting and far away as visiting somewhere that I’ve always wanted to go.
When I am on these adventures, I try to pick up on some theme and write a fictional short story to have fun with the various things that I see and do. No one else needs to read the short story. I am making it for my entertainment and practice a little creativity.
What do you do to gain creativity back when it fades?
This week we have been talking about creativity. Creativity is actually a skill that grows with use. Talking about creativity is one thing, creating is quite another. So today, I am going to challenge you to create.
Below is an outline for a maze. The actual walls and paths of the labyrinth are missing I would like to encourage you to design the pathways and barriers within the new maze. There are no rules, time limits or other demands. I would like to suggest that you create a maze where a person gets all the way through and out. Even that, though, is up to you. You could develop an endless loop.
Good luck with this exercise. Please remember that it is something to have fun with. When you get through with your maze, take a picture and send it to me, and I will publish it in the blogs. To print your blank maze, please click Build your Maze
Good luck and happy designing.
Thank you for being with me today. I hope to be with you again tomorrow.
