Give Your Creativity a Wonderful Parent

I’ve returned from vacation with something I want to say about an octopus who helps a paddle surfer navigate the currents of the waters off Kauai.   But, since I have to work on my paying writing today, I’ll save that for my next post.

Dan Goodwin offers some helpful advice in 5 Ways to Be a Wonderful Supportive Parent to Your Creativity.  He discusses the ways in which we neglect and mistreat our creative impulses like bad parents, and offers tips for turning this around.

Mother & Baby Hands

The five pitfalls he covers:

1. You don’t create every day.

2. You don’t capture your ideas.

3. You don’t acknowledge how creative you already are.

4. You don’t get any external support.

5. You never take time to just experiment and explore.
