I have read that a good way to tap your creativity is to sit quietly and let your mind wander. Doing that isn’t difficult, but allowing yourself to do it is not easy. While sitting in my living room, in the quiet early morning, I gave it a try. Much to my surprise, a good first paragraph, for a story that I have been struggling with, popped into my head; as did this as a topic for my blog today.
Often I find that my creativity flows more smoothly when I am writing longhand in a notebook. Once I get started then I can move to my computer and my creative flow continues. Perhaps there are too many distractions sitting at the computer screen.
When do you find yourself the most creative? What techniques work best for you?
