Retrospective and Prospective

I’m taking a break this week from a new Creativity Blast. I will be sending out a new topic again next Monday. Upcoming Blasts will include more Elements of Design, and starting on Principles of Design, as well as more aesthetic preferences, finding your “gateway” art form, and more ideas for overcoming blocks and jump starting your creative process.

In the mean time, please revisit old posts which now have all the corresponding tweets attached at the end, and enjoy reading some of my older articles under the Robyn’s Writing tab.

Here are a couple more creativity quotes for you to enjoy:

 “Talking endlessly about something instead of doing it depletes you of the drive to get it done.” ~ Milli Thornton, Write Your Screenplay in 29 Days

“A professional writer is an amateur who didn’t quit.” ~ Richard Bach

“Every artist was first an amateur” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

“I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life’s realities” ~ Dr. Seuss

“To invent, you need a good imagination and a pile of junk.” ~ Thomas A. Edison 

I’ve been asked to address some color theory, which I love so much I’ve been saving it. Color is the foundation of so much of my work in theater – costuming, lighting – and for my dolls and mixed media art. It’s a huge topic as an Element of Design, and will surely take more than one Creativity Blast to attack – and think of the fun activities. Any way – it’s coming soon.

If you have any Creativity questions or topics you would like me to write about, please let me know in the comments. Honestly the vast majority of the comments I receive are spam, so it would be nice to get some real comments every now and then.
