Where story ideas come from

Some of my best ideas come from one of the strangest places: the shower. I'm not sure how or why this happens. Perhaps it's from the hot water hitting me. Or maybe blobs of creative ideas hide in our shower systems to seep into our minds. Or perhaps shampoo pushes creativeness into our minds at … Continue reading Where story ideas come from

Creative way to know your characters

Vivid characters are an essential part to any story. Without strong characters, the story can seem uninteresting and fall apart. Understanding your characters is a good way to develop them. One creative way to explore your characters is to find songs that describe them personally. For example, I have a character named Victoria who's fighting … Continue reading Creative way to know your characters

Almost every creative person is afraid to let their work be released. Which seems strange to write about at the same time. We create this being - be it a book or an album or a painting or so - to be shown to the world. We design something new all together, knowing the world … Continue reading An artist’s fear

There’s a great quote when it comes to creativity. “Someone told me to be selfless But we are helpless without attention So if no one's paying attention Then does my voice get to your headphones?

Some never write for a paycheck. Others hope their novels spread hope or make it to the best seller’s list. But … Continue reading Being creatively exhausted

I always look forward into diving into a new creative world. I want to see something that will blow my mind … Continue reading Me VS Other Creative Projects

Less than or equal to?

There's always awards - a winner - when it comes to creative arts. A favorite to pick. But it doesn't have to be that way. I attended a music festival a while back. I stood surrounded by creativity of different genres and styles. A line stood between the artists in the middle of the day; … Continue reading Less than or equal to?

Writing Every Day

Writing every day used to be an ideal, a goal. I thought that I must be getting somewhere if I improved my skill every day. I had to be. How else was I going to improve other than just writing more? I'd write even if it wasn't good writing. To practice was to get better … Continue reading Writing Every Day
