Boosting Creativity

Sometimes it’s good to get out of the house.  Julia Cameron, in her famous book on creativity, The Artist’s Way, suggests taking an “artist’s date”.  Explore a museum.  People-watch at a mall.  Visit a zoo.  It doesn’t have to be expensive, complicated or a long way away, any kind of excursion will help your creativity.  Sometimes writer’s block is just a sign of stagnation, becoming a drying pond instead of a flowing stream.  If you keep learning, doing and seeing, your experiences will enrich your art.
