Creativity is a lifestyle for me, not an action. This month I’m exploring twenty-six quirky ways I keep my creativity flowing.
As a writer I find words to be incredibly wonderful. They’re tools I use on a daily, most of the time hourly, basis. With them I craft sentences, I convey thoughts, create worlds, pass along messages, share hope, and a million other little things that are hardly ever thought about.
Words sound delightful to my ears as I listen to the people around me speaking. I often times have an audio book or singing playing in the background as I work. I read words wherever I go, my eyes catching signs and headlines and brand names. Books contain thousands of words, just waiting to be sucked in. After reading, words come seemingly unbidden to my brain where I processes what I just learned and come up with new ideas.
Words can be fantastic, beautiful, melodic, and soul-feeding. My favorite way in the entire world to be creative is with words, and I’m so thankful to have them as a tool.
