Creativity flourishes in a cycle?
Do I think Creativity flourishes in a Cycle?
As a person who is into creating arts, photography, and writings; I am almost certain that creativity comes in cycles. Because when I have ideas they come in bundles, sometimes more creative ideas that I can take on at a time. But then I also have these few days, sometimes weeks where I cannot think of darn thing.
There are so many of my days I go out in to the world and I view everything I look at as a photograph, story, or drawing. One line my family hears often from me is, "Oh my gosh, that would be an awesome picture!" These "creative" days can last for weeks and a couple of months at a time. During these times I've noticed that usually everything in my life is pretty stressful, and it's kind of like me "escaping" from the "real world" for a while. I don't have to think about what's going on in my life that's stressing me and it soothes me to express myself in the ways that I love best; writing, photography, and drawing.
I've also began to notice that on days when I'm loving my life and happy; I'm not creating in the ways that I usually express my creativity; through my arts. I think this is because I'm happy with what I am doing at the time and too busy to sit down and create anything. Majority of those times I am spending time with my family or I'm at work.
The times I draw a complete blank are when I try to force an idea. It's never worked for me to just sit somewhere and think of something creative to do. Lately, when I can't think of anything to do but I am feeling a little creative I go to various sites like HubPages.com or DeviantArt.com to get a little ispiration on what I can do next.
As for God having anything to do with, I personally don't think so. I don't see how religion would have to do with this. One's creativity doesn't come from God; it comes from the individual. A person's creativity may be inherited or just a natural talent. I don't think that if I attend church this Sunday I will come out with the million dollar idea. Sorry.
