How Making Lists Fuels Creativity
I love lists. I love making lists of lists to make. Are there any other listers out there?
Whenever I am trying to think of things to write about, and my mind is drawing a blank, I make a list. I teach this to my writing students as well. Making lists has powerful effects.
Even a simple to-do list can have poetry in it. Yes, I believe there is art in running errands and cleaning the house.
So today, I am making an incomplete list of things that inspire me. I invite you to do this too. Take out your favorite pen and notebook, or open a new document and create a heading and then let your mind flow.
What inspires me?
May and October
Staying in hotels
Great works of fiction
My best girlfriends
People living their authentic lives
Grand Jury Duty
Mountains on the horizon
My strange and constant dream-life
My mom and sister
My painful and beautiful healing
I now have so many topics for writing and you should too!
