I had the pleasure of interviewing several artists and authors on how to break out of a creative rut. (Here’s that piece.)
In addition to sharing valuable tips and techniques, they also shared their wisdom on cultivating creativity in general. Today, I wanted to share their inspiring words on how to start and keep creating.
1. Realize that, yes, you are creative.
One of the biggest myths about creativity is that it’s bestowed on a lucky few, and the rest of us don’t have a creative bone in our bodies.
But this couldn’t be further from the truth. According to Christine Mason Miller, a mixed-media artist and author ofDesire to Inspire: Using Creative Passion to Transform the World, “Being creative does not mean you have to ‘be an artist.’ Being creative is about expressing yourself, and the more we express ourselves, the more good we create in the world.”
Mason Miller has witnessed the many different ways people channel their creativity. “I once talked to a parking garage attendant about his love of opera and the conversation has never left me. One of my best friends turned her love of chocolate and world travel into a brownie business.”
