Writing has allowed me to explore my creative side. I have found that creativity is like lightening in a bottle. It doesn’t strike often, but when it does, it must be answered promptly with reverence and obedience. What I mean is, when my brain says to write, write I must. I sit at my computer and write everyday. I find that it helps to just write one letter at a time. Sometimes my ideas are shrouded in shadows of stress
or doubt but if I calm myself, they can fall from my creative tree like leaves on a fall day. When I write, I sometimes think of pretty creative questions like:
1. How pointed are an Elf’s ears?
2. What does an Ogre smell like?
3. Well there ever be a wheelchair without a stupid sounding horn?
4 Can similes be too descriptive?
Buddha’s second noble truth is “The cause of suffering is desire.” I find that sometimes it is better not to have desire or goals for my writing and just let it come of its own volition. But sometimes I just want to get something down and that’s when this approach is tough to use. What is your creative process?
