Get Creative & Stay Creative
Your ebook guide to building a creative habit and keeping it going, even when negative thoughts creep in.
Being creative isn't as simple as picking up a pencil, paintbrush, glue stick or pair of knitting needles and just getting started. You need time, motivation, and some inspiration or ideas.
These things can sometimes be a little tricky to get a hold of, so when you do have them you want to be sure no negative thoughts get the chance to creep in.
You know the kind:
- "Oh, that's such a waste of paint!"
- "Why do I never get any better?"
- "I'll never be as good as so-and-so."
Negative thoughts can be really destructive and as limiting as not actually having the supplies you need to make a project. So it’s my intention that this ebook will help you get a handle on any negative thoughts you have as a creative while making sure you are always inspired and ready to create when you get the time.
We start off with some ways to look after your mind and body to help create the best chance of being creative. Then we go on to look at ways of finding inspiration, something that I know is or has been a big struggle for all creatives at some point.
The second portion of the book looks at an issue that affects all creatives at some point: negative thinking. Doubt, procrastination, comparison, creative block, and the inner critic are all considered in the “Creative Troubleshooting” section, along with ways to deal with them. We also look at how to find time to be creative and how to learn from your mistakes.
When you've finished this ebook, you should be better equipped to deal with your creative issues and more able to find the enjoyment, fulfilment and relaxation you desire from the creative projects you undertake.
