Your weekly treat has arrived early this week, as I’m reserving Friday for another post. Below find a highlight of links I tweeted on creativity and writing this week. Let me also invite any folks in the DC area who blog or are considering doing so to join me in a six-week workshop on blog writing I’ll be conducting at The Writer’s Center in Bethesda, Maryland. The course runs six weeks starting the evening of Tuesday, April 17th; more information to come!
- “Got Creative Block? Get out of your office and go for a walk,” Bernie DeGroat, U. of Michigan News Service: You can follow this link to read the science behind the headline’s command. Or you can just follow it. I’ll be here when you get back.
- “The Power of Metaphors,”Michael Michalko, Psychology Today: They’re not just for writers anymore.
- “Vision + Mastery for No-Goals Creatives This Year,” Jeffrey Davis, Psychology Today: It’s okay if you’re not a New Year’s resolutions type of creative. But do you have clearly defined goals? Do you have a path to reaching them?
- “Are You Creative? A Quiz,” Jill Badonsky, guest post on Strangling my Muse: I’ll give you a hint: Jill thinks you are.
Thanks, Patrick, for including Creative Flux in your Creativity Tweets!
