30 Days of Creativity
Have you heard about the 30 Days of Creativity project? I found it via twitter, like I find most things these days. It is run by @createstuff and the premise, according to their website, is:
30 Days of Creativity is a social initiative encouraging people to create stuff (anything) every day for 30 days in June.
Your brain is like a muscle. When you exercise it, it gets stronger.
This immediately appealed to me and I thought, why not join? It should inspire me to do some of the things I often think of doing.... then never get around to actually trying. As I've been pondering possible projects, I realized that I am fairly creative in my daily life already -- but, I value everyday creativity highly and try not to get locked into a grey routine, by consciously trying new activities especially around writing & books, as is probably the case for most of my readers ;)
(I've even written a journaling workbook about everyday creativity for my business, Four Rooms Creative Self Care).
I'll be sharing a bit about my activities this month so be prepared for some not-strictly-bookish posts to come...although many of my ideas do revolve around bookish themes, naturally.
What about you? Do you have a favourite form of creativity? What is it? (photography, painting, dollmaking, sewing, cooking, music, writing??) Are you thinking about joining in on the 30 Days of Creativity Project?
