Creativity. What is it?



Q: What is creativity?  

A: The relationship between a human being and the mysteries of inspiration. 

I read this quote today.  It stands alone at the front of a book called Big Magic.  Written by Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic explores our relationship with creativity.  Something I find fascinating.

Back in 2007 I started writing blog posts for my All Things Creative.  It gave me pleasure then (and still does) to look for creativity in all aspects of my life.  All Things Creative became the perfect platform for me to focus on the joys of looking at life creatively.  I haven’t been good at keeping up regular posts, but I HAVE been good at allowing my creativity to come and go.

Today I find I’m embarking on a new journey of creativity.  Reading Big Magic has inspired me a hundred fold.  How my new journey will unfold I’ve yet to discover.  However, with 10 years of freelance web content writing under my belt and affirmation from Elizabeth Gilbert that we all have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within all of us, I aim to progress my ‘writing’ and ‘creativity’ journey in ever-expanding ways.

I come back to my faithful branding tree.

I remain rooted in my ‘writing’ and I’m branching out in ‘creativity’.  Put simply, Creative Writing.  And Elizabeth Gilbert reminds me that it’s never too late to begin your creative endeavours.

Here are three things I LOVE about creativity:

  • You are never too old to be creative
  • If you’re alive, you’re a creative person
  • Creativity is always within us, even if you have lost sight of it for a while

Brexit is Dead

I will re-post this daily, & as Arron Banks says, "public opinion is like concrete, once it sets you can't shift it".

Please feel free to share the same message & see how much concrete we can produce :).

Brexit means less sovereignty.

▪️A weak pound will allow foreign investors to pick off UK assets.

▪️WTO tariffs will make UK exports uncompetitive.

▪️Foreign corporations able to sue the UK Government.

▪️UK passport will have less power due to diminished freedom of movement.

Everyone needs constantly reminding that after 9 years of a Tory Government:

Child poverty + 50%
Food-bank use + 1,000%
Homelessness + 170%
NHS waiting list + 70%
Police numbers - 20%
Crime + 30%
Local gov funding - 50%
Public sector pay - 15%

Never forget how cruel they are.
