Creativity for the fun of It


Do you do something creative for practice everyday?

Beyond that... do you do something creative for FUN everyday?

Remember when you were a kid? Barely? Well, think back. I remember long days of coloring. I mastered blending with a tissue early on. It was my specialty.

I have specific memories of sitting in the front yard on a blanket coloring for hours. I did love the blending, but my favorite (we did this one at school) was coloring a whole piece of construction paper with vivid colors, then painting the surface with black paint. Once the paint dries, you scratch the shape of a picture through the paint so the vivid colors of the crayon shine through. It was always a surprise to see what color was where on the picture.

Why don't we do any of that today? I, for one, often get too caught up in the seriousness of everyday life... time to break that habit.

I do this regularly. I write children's literature, visit schools as author, and I'm constantly making things to take with me, as well as reliving my childhood through my books. At the moment I'm running off pictures of teddy bears, sixty three of them... :0)
