It's easy to let those ideas slowly fall apart when we get sucked into our everyday lives, our routines, our online marketing, or our daily chores of running our business.
Inspiration - is a sudden creativity in artistic production. Do you know what that feels like?
The best way to explore a new idea is to know when an idea is coming to you. No it's not magic, it is a physical reaction that lets you know to pay attention.
Grab your sketch book or journal and go back in your mind to the last time you had that feeling of inspiration.
Answer these question:
►What did it feel like when the idea arrived?
►What time of the day was it?
►What physically indicated your inspirational moment?
~visual - what images did you see
~audible - music, a song, someones voice
~Smell - inportant to remember, a familiar smell can bring back a flood of memories
►What about your emotions at the time? Did they play a part?
Visual images are really important for me when I have that inspirational moment. I don't always hear what's going on around me, but I do get that excited tingle, that need to create in that moment. There are times when that moment has happened to me when it is not possible for me to just drop everything and create, so I always have a notebook with me and until I have a chance to put my idea on paper I can't think about anything else.
Do you remember the last time you had an inspirational moment? How did you feel?
