What do you create?

Creativity appears in many forms – for some of us it’s writing or singing, painting, creating something out of the blue or crafting it from some materials.

We often tend to think that only artists are creative. But that’s not true.

You don’t have to be a painter, musician or author to create. I was taught that, too.

You’re only an author if you’re published and successful, sitting in a show on TV, talking about you newest book.

That’s nonsense – I always felt that strongly and Julia Cameron’s “The Artist’s Way” told me the same. I did that programme a few times over the years, and wrote poems, published in an anthology – not famous, not making much money – but I know I am a poet. I also wrote blog posts , screenplays and lots more

I write daily and create. I also create in other areas – because creating, being creative does not mean you have to be an artist.

You can be creative in many areas – you just have to drop the myth.

Creativity, noun, has the following meanings:

1.
the state or quality of being creative.
2.

the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination:

the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts.
3.

the process by which one utilizes creative ability:

Extensive reading stimulated his creativity.

 

That means you can create in any area your working in, and of course at home:

you can create in your garden, you can knit something for a friend, you can decorate your home, you can take pictures of nature or shoot a video of your cat behaving funnily.

The way you do those things will be uniquely yours. That’s what creativity means.

There are so many ways to experience this – make a list for yourself, give it a try.

Experiencing creativity can and will make your life more joyful and rich.
