Recently, I’ve been struggling to keep creative.
I used to write all the time. I’d picked up painting. I used to shoot photos whenever I could. By the end of 2017, I’d sort of gone brain-dead in that way. Kind of went on autopilot and stopped challenging myself to create things.
That’s the inspiration behind my 2018 New Year’s Resolution; the goal is to get my brain thinking creatively again. I’m hoping to use this blog as a platform to complete creative writing prompts. Ideally by the end of 2018, I’ll add a couple of videos, designs, and paintings to my portfolio as well. But I’d be happy with just a few short writing prompts a month.
So I’m going to use 642 Things to Write About to spark these blog posts, and hopefully it’ll inspire me to get more visually creative, too!
After a lot of self-reflection, stepping away from social media, and surrounding myself with true friends and family and a supportive boyfriend, I’ve realized that creativity is the one thing I loved about my personality and the practice of it in my life has sort of fallen to the wayside.
So 2018 is going to be a year of creativity and getting my brain out of its rut. And I invite whoever still reads blog this to come along on the journey.
