Creativity Tip No. 1
(I try to write in a journal every day, but it doesn't often hapen. Daily life sometimes gets in the way of the journal, but I do it when I can. No pressure.)
When you are out shopping for a journal, pick up a package of colored pens. I had been using black pens to write with, and recently decided that this was not fun enough. So I bought pink, orange, green and blue pens, which reminded me of when I was in college and used a turquoise pen to write in a journal. A long time ago, but I still remember that.
I hope you will use your new rainbow pens constantly -- to draw things, to make "to do" lists, to write down a menu or whatever else your creative mind wants to hold onto.
Let's see -- we could use pink for Valentine's Day notes, green for gardening tips, blue for. . . but wait. You can decide all by yourself what the groovy pens will be used for.
That's the fun of it!
