Creative Writing: Creativism & Creativists, Go Creative! Show

On The Go Creative! Show This Week: Episode 7, Forming Good Creative Habits

This week’s episode of The Go Creative! Show is about creative writing, encouraging your creative growth whether you journal or free-write, or actually write for a living. Today our theme is how to establish and strengthen good creative habits and, as always, the show explores principles that can be applied, no matter what you’re creating. Dan Blank of www.wegrowmedia.com offers three creative writing can-dos, while I offer free-writing prompts that explore your own creative habits, and how they can be improved. And the show finishes with a reading from my novel “Blue Mercy”, where the protagonist is struggling with her own challenges, talking about how such…

Be More Creative. This week… Creative Visualisation with Albert Einstein

Though Einstein is most known for his theory of relativity, what brought him to fame first was his explanation of the photo-electric effect, proving that light was both particle and wave. Einstein consciously applied creative skills to the problem by performing “thought experiments” in his head while doing his day job as a clerk. Through the process of vividly imagining what happened to light and why (imagining himself at the head of a light-beam and how it felt), he explained a phenomenon that every other physicist in the scientific community actively avoided as impossible to resolve. His work method: “Although…

Quantum Creativity

I’m thinking about creative and conventional views of reality this morning, as I’m reading Quantum (by Manjit Kumar).  It’s a great read, about the mind-blowing conundrums at the heart of modern physics and a very human look at the men who brought them to us. Lacking the mathematical language to grasp some of the concepts, I have to take the science in the book very, v..e…r…y… slowly but I’m fascinated by how the quantum worldview supports a creative perspective — much more so than Read More

Go Creative… With Albert Einstein

Last Time: Go Creative… With Henry Miller “The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all true art and science. He to whom the emotion is a stranger, who can no longer pause to wonder and stand wrapped in awe, is as good as dead; his eyes are closed. “The insight into the mystery of life, coupled though it be with fear, has also given rise to religion. To know what is impenetrable to us really exists, manifesting itself as Read More

Shut Up and Be

Try this.  For one hour a day, every day from now on, resolve to be silent.  To speak only in reply to questions asked of you.  Apart from necessary answers to direct questions, to say nothing. Come on, it’s just one hour. Silence is far more powerful than we generally allow.  Unlike sound – and most everything else in our world – silence cannot be categorised or explained.  It is pure, whole and complete in itself. This discipline of an hour’s silence a day was recommended by Read More
