Day 51: Six weeks of summer

So now it's the holidays! Woop woop. You know what that means? Six weeks to get creative!

Ok, it might be a bit unreasonabe to ask for 24/7 creativity for the whole six weeks, but my point is that you now have some space. No homework, no revision, on going to school every day. So what are you going to do with all that time...?

Well here are a few suggestions for the creative thinkers out there;

Look back in your notebook (or whatever it is you use to unload all the ideas from your head). There are probably loads of creative ideas in there that are just dying to be explored. What better time than now. Find one idea that really excites you and role with it. See how far it takes you. Now really is the best time to start, 'cause you've got six weeks ahead of you (potentially) before routine kicks back in and you lose time/momentum for it.

Or, look in your local paper, library, the Internet for creative stuff going on in your area and sign up. There's bound to be loads of stuff at this time of year. Get involved in whatever it is you fancy. You never know where it might lead you or what new friends (contacts for all you networkers) you will meet.

It might be that some (many) of you are going away/have loads of other stuff planned for the summer and the thought of being creative just doesn't fit in. Well, think again my friends. Creativity is everywhere! Whatever you're doing, keep an eye out. Take that pad with you and see what you find, hear, touch, taste, on your travels. Nothing is a wasted experience when you're creative.

I guess what I'm really trying to say is don't waste your summer away. Use it. If creativity is your thing (or you want it to be your thing) then embrace the time you have and get creating. Whatever you do this summer, be inspired by it!
