Recently, I have been busy busy busy and the amount of blogging I am doing is really suffering. I appear to have lapsed into a post every other day, which I really don't want to do. But for now, all I can do is prevent it from slipping down to every third day so here we go...
I do not see myself as an outstandingly creative person, but I do always feel the need to 'create' something. In fact, I believe that it is within everybody, as a part of human nature, to wish to create new things as best we can. That is what has allowed us to invent and evolve as a human race, from wherever we started off to the modern world. Isn't the extent of the change which is constantly happening a true testamant to the imagination of human-kind?
Some people have a special talent for certain creativity; in fact, everyone does in one way or another. They may be a fantastic chef, web designer, jewelry designer, musician, artist, actor, scientist, inventor.
As I have said, I am no Mozart, Monet, Einstein. Nevertheless, even when I am at my most busy, I still make some time for being creative. When I am not blogging as in these past few days, I am writing essays or short stories or even personal little poems. When I'm not writing, I'm taking photos on my rubbish little camera phone, or creating home-made cards. I also like escaping into a world of acting. Much of what I create documents beauty which already exists: in my writing, in photos and in the cards which I make out of the pretty ribbons, sequins, card and glitter I have amassed.
Running a little low on money, I have often wondered if I could pocket a few pennies this way. I have been offered certain adverts on my blog, or I could try that adsense thing, but I don't really trust the internet. I even looked up writing competitions on google, but I'm not going to pay an entry free. Recently, I have considered trying to sell some of my card creations, but being the perfectionist that I am, I doubt the profit would be time or cost effective. Still, I might give it a go.
I made a movie of my favourite cards on Windows Movie Player, but I don't know how to post it. Anyone got a clue? I'm talented, eh?
So, how do you get your creative juices flowing?
