creative pause prompt #1

In my last e-zine, I talked about a new series of blog posts I'm beginning starting today, Creative Pause Prompts.

(If you don't subscribe to my e-zine, you can do that here. We talk about different aspects of being an artist and there is always a giveaway each month - don't miss out!)

Here is the what Creative Pause Prompts are all about:

Living a creative life is about more then just the artwork you produce. Its about remaining connected to your creative spirit, to the thing that drives you to make things. Since most of us have to squeeze art time into the little bits of the day that aren't sucked up by our routines and schedules, its often easy to push our creative self aside.

I've been keeping a notebook for years now with Creative Pause Prompts. They are little tiny exercises that may not seem like much, may seem silly or not even something you'd label as creative, but they keep me in touch with my creative self.

I've decided to bring them to the blog. Every Monday I'll post a different prompt and if you need a little "me" time during the week to feed your muse but can't spare more then a nanosecond, this prompt will be waiting for you to help fill that void.

Keep a notebook, jot things down, don't stress if you can't get to it. These are truly a no pressure kind of thing, just little blips in the background that keep your creativity fed and happy.

Sound good? Good! :)

So without further ado, here is Creative Pause Prompt #1:

Write down five projects that you'd like to make if money and time (and even physics) were no object. Just daydream, be wild - go wild!

And with that we are off and running! Simple, right? If you'd like to share any of your thoughts, leave a comment but no problem too if you'd like to hoard it all for yourself. Have a wonderful creative pause! :)
