From Leo Babauta of Zen Habits
[Note: The Zen Habits link alone should carry you through years of creative reinvention.]
Get lots of rest. Overwork kills creativity.
Don’t force it. Relax, play, it will start to flow.
Allow your mind to wander. Allow distractions, when you’re looking for inspiration.
Do you have any tips to share?
Let’s see if any of these resonate with you.
From Jody Cleghorn of Write Anything. [This site is now closed, but the content remains online as an archive.]
Make up the rules for what you want to produce.
Try to write every day, even if just for a few minutes. [Substitute ‘paint’, ‘sculpt’, ‘cook’, for ‘write’.]
Work on several projects. This keeps you energized and working creatively even when one project isn’t firing. [Good advice, but I’m guilty of taking this a little too far. Make it manageable.]
