She also talks about writing a novel, being a dragon and burning down everyone you love if you take her gem (me), fear of spiders, cake, and all her nerdy feels on her Twitter page.
Wow, it’s been almost a month since I last shared an inspiration to-do list. If you’re unsure what that is you may read the first post here. In short it’s a list of things to do, maybe in doing these things it will start a spark of creativity, whether you write, paint, or sing.
- Reread an old favorite book. I recently reread Song of the Sparrow. While I loved it several years ago, it’s no longer my cup of tea. One book series I always love to reread is The Hunger Games trilogy.
- Sketch or color. Being artistic without being wrapped up in worrying about the results is incredibly relaxing. I love to sketch, however I know other adults who really enjoy coloring books. You don’t have to be a kid to color.
- Visit with some animals. If you have some pets make sure to have some snuggle time with them, and fully enjoy it without worrying about the next thing you need to do. If you don’t have any pets–I’m unable to have any for the time being–then maybe you could visit a pet store and just enjoy looking at all the animals. Last time I went I fell in love with a guinea pig and a couple fancy green conures. Even though I was unable to bring them home just spending time around them helped rid me of the depression I was fighting that day.
- Learn something new. Is there something you’ve wanted to learn for a long time, but have been putting off? I’ve been wanting to learn computer programming for years, but since my Lyme disease affects my brain function I had put it off. I finally decided to put if off for no longer, and I am now learning Python programming.
Do you enjoy sketching or coloring? Is there something you want to learn that you’ve put off? How do you find inspiration?
