I read an article today on the stifling of creativity. I got a lot out of it and hopefully readers out there might too.
Here's a link to it.
How To Stifle Your Creativity In 10 Easy Steps
On and off for many years now I have been a poetry writer. Nothing great, it's mainly a means of self-expression and also a nice way to play a sort of word game, especially with the more strictly rhyme and meter type poems.
I did a bit of writing in this vein last week, a parody on a song from "
The Wizard Of Oz" tied in to a situation we are involved in heer in Georgia that is really too local to even bother explaining. Anyway, I noticed that being lost in creativity has a very good effect on my well-being and also my body.
First I should tell you that I usually will start and finish a project at one sitting.
In doing that I get "in the tunnel", my mind so focussed that little else seems to exist or matter for that stretch of time. Its like a slight yet steady dose of mild adrenalin going through my body, I feel very, healthy and present in the moment. Usually for a long time after the effect seems to have a calming effect on my shaking limbs.
So I need to listen to this and allow for creativity to wiork it's magic on me.
PS: Anyone out there actually reading this?
