When I want to write a blog post, the words sometimes don’t come, no matter how hard I try.
I usually don’t try very hard. Sometimes, blog posts take time to percolate. In that case, I always go and create something else.
I knit, or work on graphics design, or make digital art.
Anything creative, but nothing with words.
Playing around with creativity like that always helps. Always.
Today I decided to make some digital art. After about half an hour, the idea for this blog post bubbled to the surface and I sat down to write it.
It definitely helps to have projects ready to go. Knitting always at hand, my graphics software on the forefront of my phone screen for instance. I don’t need to look for it, just create and wait for the words to come.
And when they do, it always feels like a gift.
Because it is.
