Staying Creative

Voice. When I feel block beginning to set in (and you can feel it approach; it doesn’t tend to just drop down suddenly), I get up from the desk and grab a voice-recorder, then just brainstorm as I pace around. There’s something magical about just talking aloud. Pause and resume often, and you’ll find that your mind manages to fill in the gaps. Matt Gemmell

Good tips on keeping the creative juices flowing.  I’m in need of that right now in both my photography and my writing.  I’ve also noticed that I get a lot of ideas when I’m not sitting at the computer.  My most creative thought time is when I’m in the shower or driving to work.

Thoughts on writing

Show up. Be yourself. Write. Put it out there for people to read. Patrick Rhone via Nicola Losito

Clarity

The single most important skill you can develop is clarity in your communication.

When you decide to put your words down – to get them out of your head – you’re making an effort to take the mess inside and turn it into something neater on the outside. Something people can understand.

This is the skill that every single person out there needs – the need to learn to be more clear in their communication. Writing regularly helps.Chris Lema
