Considering Creativity

“For some of us, the highest form of play, as well as work, is creativity. The best gift is a creative idea to play with.”

…from God, Help Me Create by Claire W. Chapter 1 intro, Considering Creativity

I had originally set out to write another blog, my first on writing. But I wanted more. Maybe it was what was becoming the mundane of writing articles and using keywords. Not rocket science but when you’re a writer you strive for relevancy if not proper sentence structure.

Somewhere in my excitement of finding work as a freelance writer, I immediately lost the part of me that wanted to be a published writer, someone who wanted to write fiction, write for kids, and write creatively. And yes, I have so many creative ideas to play with.

Yes what I do now is fulfilling and creative, but in the midst of embracing a new found career that would keep me home with my children and save me from a commute to the office in the future, I kept telling myself that I had more work to do. If I could accomplish so much in so little time in my journey to becoming a writer, why would I not apply myself to what my heart cries out to do? Why?

If I eek out time in my life to make a living, can I not eek out a bit of time each day to make a dream…come true?

Can you?

    I am so excited to watch this blog grow and see where it goes.

    Like you I found myself in the SEO rut. Now I have 1 non-fiction in the works, as well as three childrens stories.

    At this point I am writing them for me. At this point I don’t even know if I will try to have them published. Maybe I will. Maybe I won’t.

    But one thing about it. After a long hiatus and being thrust back into the world of freelancing, I must do something for me.
