A lonely wooden house sits on the fine white sands of the beach. Purple and pink splash across the sky as the sun peeks through the still waters ready for what the day will bring. Birds chirp their good mornings and crabs have already kissed their families goodbye and set out for the day. About a mile off from the house where the shore meets the waves, a young blond-haired, brown-eyed girl strolled back toward the porch after her morning walk in the crisp humid air. Her white cotton cover-up blew gently against the wind. She walked up the steps onto the wrap-around porch where pumpkins and a wooden sign presenting an inspiring word sat. The decorations caused passerby to sigh with dreams of their own in mind as they glanced at the magnificence of such a place. As she slid the glass doors open, she took a deep breath, hearing the soft piano music in the distance. Walking over to the tan couch, she sunk into its memory foam pillows. With a smile on her face, she sat back up, grabbed her pad, pen and her glass of sweet tea and lemon, and put her fingers to work on the story that will continue her legacy far beyond her years.
This is my dream life. Where I always go when stressed or frustrated and need to “get away.” Imagination and creativity can come from anywhere – places, people, religion or even going through experiences or memories. The main objective is to find within yourself what keeps you going when you feel you've run out of steam. There are many ways to stay creative when writing, which will be discussed in this next month. The different ways of creative insight have both scientific value as well as efficiency in keeping on track. Hopefully you will find at least one technique that may help your creative juices continue to flow, even when they seem completely drained.
