Does Activity Lead to Creativity?

A few more days until one of the busiest months of the year for me – by my own design.

I’m writing at least 50k words in June – JuNoWriMo and/or Camp NaNoWriMo.

As part of JuNoWriMo, I’ll be hosting writing sprints on Twitter three days a week – Monday, Wednesday, Friday, 7 am to 9 am. Look for #JuNoWriMo

I won’t go into the details about my “day job,” but my work load is doubling.

My new project – Southern Creatives – is booked solid through the month of June – EXCELLENT!

The anthology I am putting together is picking up steam – there are so many amazing and talented people who are involved in the project. *Anthology is about quilting, but it is not a “how to.” It is about the tradition, culture and symbolism of quilting. Title: Rich Fabric

I’ll be on JuNoWriMo.com on June 18 with a guest post.

But, I love the activity. I thrive on it.

For me, activity breeds creativity.

It is when I am idle that my creative process stagnates.

What about you?

About melindamcguirewrites

The young man or woman writing today has forgotten the problems of the human heart in conflict with itself which alone can make good writing because only that is worth writing about, worth the agony and the sweat. ------ William Faulkner, Nobel Prize Speech, Stockholm, 1950

    Best wishes on such a BUSY month! Do you have a release date for the anthology? Sounds interesting. Have you read any of Jennifer Chiaverini’s books? She weaves quilting & the history into her fiction. If you haven’t already, check out The Runaway Quilt. It entails immigrants, slavery, the ultimate sacrifice, and betrayal. There there is the follow-up, The Lost Quilter, which tells a little more about what happened afterward. (Still working on completing it in between book club reads)

    • Hi!
      The quilting anthology should be released mid-September.
      I have not read any of Chiaverini’s books, but they sound great. I’ll add those to my list 🙂
      And, many thanks for the best wishes. I will gladly take them!
