for the fun of it....

 Too often I let myself get caught up in the work of writing and the work of learning to draw and the work of photography and don't take the time to just enjoy it.  So, I've recently decided to spend some time on all three just enjoying myself.  I'll draw silly pictures and doodle to my heart's content and write a story that breaks all the rules occasionally.  It won't hurt and it'll probably help me to loosen up a bit in all areas.

How do you go about getting your creativity revved up to a fever pitch?  One way I've found is to exercise.  I have been working out lately and have found that it gets the blood flowing. And when it doesn't send me off for a long afternoon nap, it does improve my creativity.  That's a tip from me to you.

Enjoy your weekend and take some time to enjoy your craft just... for the fun of it.

Good idea. I'm not very creative with anything, but I guess I come up with the most ideas first thing in the morning. It's always interesting reading your tips.

Hello Lou sounds like good advice I find walking in the bush always gets my imagination and creativity going. I really never abide by the rules of writing. Maybe I should but I truly enjoy writing and hopefully someday it will turn out to be something more for me. I am a novice for sure. I admire people that can write well and an artist I am not but I truly admire the talent of others.Enjoying a talent that you have is truly the gift. Thanks Lou. B

that is great advice. I was working out all summer and it did help. I must get back to it!

YOU taking art lessons? I think you are tricking ALL of us! Every bit of work I have seen that you have done is just fabulous!

I agree with you 100%, Lou. Like everyone else, I need to get back to a regular routine of daily exercise.
Thanks for the reminder! :)

That's why I so rarely do professional photography anymore. I just wasn't enjoying it. Now I just do photos for fun.
