Can You Get Creative On Demand?
Irene S. Roth
Can you be creative on demand? Or, do you need a tidy time that is planned ahead of time to be able to write most effectively?
Most of you write better when you plan your writing time. But what if life gets in the way, finding writing time very difficult for a while?
When life gets in the way and the unexpected happens and all of your plans to write get destroyed, you must get creative on demand to make sure you get your writing done. This is a crucial aspect of being a successful writer. Because a LOT of times life DOES get in the way, doesn’t it? Sometimes, someone in your family gets ill, or your spouse is in a car accident.
When this happens, you must find a way to be creative on demand. During such times, you won’t have the luxury to brainstorm ideas or sketch out different writing projects before diving into them. You simply have to try and turn on your creativity as if it’s a faucet. This is because for most of you, other responsibilities and emergencies can often interfere with your writing time. This means you must make the most of every minute you can steal away to get your writing done.
Here are a few ways you can do this.
1. Cut out television time by a half an hour and write then.
2. Learn to write in different places, such as grocery store line-ups, emergency rooms, or other waiting rooms.
3. Be flexible with your writing time. Commit to getting some writing done every day.
4. Be creative with finding time to write. You’d be surprised at how much writing you could do in even a half an hour or an hour of found time.
Can you be creative on demand? What steps can you take today to ensure that you do?
