Creativity Is Its Own Animal: how to create when you’re froggy

You know the quintessential artist. This person does not produce much for periods at a time, but then comes up with a storm of creations all at once. I totally became this person. Just now, I came up with two stories after a long while where I was questioning my creativity. It’s like I’m as creative as a London bus; an idea does not come for a while and then, all of a sudden, I’m hit with two. This goes to show that creativity is its own animal, but there are things you can do when you become froggy.

Remember that the goal of creativity is quality and not originality. The first point I stress is not to become overly-obsessed with being original. If a thought keeps on coming up in your head, then try to turn it into a story, inspiration for a painting or something else, depending on the art form you are pursuing.

Don’t stress being to particular to begin with. Quality is in the detail, but good ideas are like diamonds in the ruff. You can rub the dirt off later, but try to find a complete gem to begin with. That is to say, complete your ideas and the rest will follow. You can basically fill in the fails of an outline, and create your works that way.

Those are my tips on how to stay creative. Please let me know in the comments section if you have any ideas yourself.

  1. When feeling uninspired I always look for input from things like reading or maybe podcasts, blogs or pinterest. For me the other big thing is contact with the outdoors.
