Today’s prompts:

  • What do you call the creative force?
  • How can you tell when you’re in creative flow?
  • What makes the conditions of creative flow possible?

What do you call the creative force? Creative force is anything that inspires you. It could be the simplest memory to the more awe-inspiring building. It’s what ever moves you so much you’ll never forget it. As I’m sure you can tell, I really like the ocean. From the first time I can remember stepping on the beach, water became a constant in my life. Whether I was miles away or jumping into the crashing waves, I was in heaven. No matter what emotions or live events I was going through, the beach was always the answer. It always seems to open my mind for clarity and allow me to leave my problems with the receding current. Harnessing these feelings of freedom is what drives me.

How can you tell when you’re in creative flow? Basically, when you fingers can’t type fast enough and you’re drilling a hole through your paper. When you page becomes full of typos but you don’t see to care, you know something good is emerging. When you can’t stop until your entire work is finished, you know it’s been a good day. When you get lost for hours and realize the sun has come and gone, you know you’ve got the creative bug.

What makes the conditions of creative flow possible? There is no perfect time or place to be creative. I usually write most of my posts behind a desk in the most uninspiring place. Although I’d rather be anywhere but here, I don’t sell my creativity short. I have learned to tune out the background noise and just let my words flow. If I only take away one thing from this month-long process, it’ll have been to realize your creativity is that you can learn to channel your inner artists at every moment of your day.
