Dear Multi-Creative Woman!
Happy Easter All! I love this time of year; the days are longer and brighter, nature is waking up and colour is emerging all around us; I especially love the bright yellow colour of spring daffodils and the gorse bushes here in Scotland that emit the glorious smell of coconut when the sun warms their flowers.
Today, I’m sending you written Rhythmic Inspiration rather than a video. I love to write and express in this way too.
How Big is your Creative Tool Kit?
In fact, I see creative expression as tools and often I choose the ‘tool’ that will express what I want to express in that moment, in the best possible way. Sometimes that is video, sometimes writing, or painting with colour, dancing, design, music, cooking, singing, performing, or sometimes it’s simply dressing in my own unique creative way giving attention to colour,style, texture and jewellery.
How do you enjoy expressing yourself creatively?
If writing doesn’t say what you want to say in that moment, then try video instead, or painting. Perhaps what you want to express calls for something more visual, something that contains colour, shape and form. Perhaps your expression calls for your body to move, to feel your rhythm and connect with your physicality. Perhaps it calls for detailed work and the creation of something beautiful like a piece of jewellery.
If you’re stuck at your writing desk or sick of the sight of your canvas or graphics on your computer screen, then try your hand at something else for a while. You may only need 10 minutes, 2 hours, 3 days or you may find it’s something you want to continue with to enhance and support all of your creative endeavors. When we break out of routine or the idea that because we are professionally a writer or a dressmaker, a carpenter or musician that we have to stick to that medium; then new forms of creative inspiration open up to help create depth and richness in our originally chosen creative fields.
Try some of these ideas and tools to get your creative juices flowing and add to your creative tool kit:
- Take a huge piece of paper and write with paint and colour using a toothbrush!
- Start the day dancing to your favourite music or turn up at a new dance class
- Design and make a piece of jewellery you’d like to wear
- Choose some fabric for a clothing design and imagine what it might look like
- Write a poem or a song and if you can’t play an instrument, get together with friends who can and create something together
- Develop an idea for a short video or documentary that can visually express a message you want to share
