Creative Inspiration

What I do to get in the inspired mindset

Hello and welcome back guys!

It’s Friday! Yay! We’ve made it through another week!

I thought today might be good to talk about creative inspiration and where I seem to find mine.

Almost always my creative inspiration doesn’t come at a good time. Especially my inspiration for writing.

More often than not I tend to get ideas and inspiration when I’m at work. Which gets to be really frustrating at times. In those instances, I keep a notebook near me. I try to write down as much as I can about my ideas without letting it interfere with my work day.

Just in general I try to keep a notepad and pen close by in case something comes to me.

So where do I find my inspiration when I do have time to work on things? It all depends on what kind of mood I’m trying to achieve. I use music playlists, people I surround myself with/reach out to when trying to get into the groove (this sounded dirtier than I intended :P), the physical items around me and I also use my Pinterest boards to inspire me. Sometimes this works, sometimes it doesn’t.

Sometimes getting out of my typical environment does the trick. What I mean by that is going to a café, coffee place, a library, or a park can really do wonders for your work.

I also find that clearing my mind helps get my creative juices flowing. Doing some deep, calming breathing helps me calm down and forget about all my real world stress and problems so I can focus on creating. Sometimes it’s creating new and different problems. 😉

But I also let the real world inspire me. We write and create best with what we know ❤

So what do you guys do? When do you find yourself getting most inspired?

Stay classy and sassy 😀
