Creativity, like life itself, seems to have its cycles. I find it interesting.
Blog writing has been difficult for me recently. What has worked from time to time is to tote my laptop when I am away from the shop and the farm. I will then hear or see something that totally inspires writing.
Soaping follows the same type of path. Creativity does not always happen in the shop. Fresh ideas pop up after I smell, read, hear, away from the soap studio itself. Nature often does it.
A person cannot force creative thoughts.
What inspires you to write or try something new (or perhaps crafty)?
When are you most creative?
Do you find creativity to be an important need in your life?
Before I hit the publish button, I’ll throw in one more thought. Sound sleep. Do your creative juices wane or flow when snoozing has been plentiful? What about the idea of sleeping with a pad of paper and pencil nearby, so those 2 AM brainstorms can be penned?
