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?
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)
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!
