I was interviewed earlier this year. One of the things we were talking about was “women and creativity”. You’ve gotta nurture your creativity to create art!
As I’m saying in the video below, creativity is fun! It’s a resource you have within. We all have it, so don’t you try to cop out! 😉 When you deny yourself your own capacity to turn any creative endeavor into something fun and expansive, you do the same to your existent and future audience too!
When working on your blog, a folder, a new header for you Fanpage or Twitter account, relax! You’re not going to create an artistic masterpiece. You’re going to have fun and explore possibilities. You can reserve your art for what you do on stage. But creativity, that you can enjoy everywhere and all the time!
So don’t be shy about it! Instead go wild, make experiments and jump out of your comfort zone as often as you can. Interestingly enough, it WILL spill over to your artistic work in the long run! Any constriction limits everything in your life and vice versa. Your audacity will create audacious work, all over the place! 🙂
Here is a beautiful, short Ted talk about the creative process. 7 minutes with Elizabeth Gilbert. I recommend any artis to watch it!
