In this series of blog posts, I’m discussing writers and our creativity as a relationship, not merely a hobby, profession, or occupation. Our creativity is something we feed. We listen to it and learn from it. It elevates our spirits and our connections. The more we embrace creativity as a relationship, the better we can understand how to seed it and what we gain from it.

To fully engage with your creativity – rather than merely becoming entangled with it – consider these questions:

  • Is your creativity an arena where you gain self-knowledge?
  • Are you committed to it, to developing it, and developing yourself?
  • Are you committed to telling the truth and taking responsibility for choices surrounding your creativity?
  • Are you choosing to have a good time?


Today, take some time to contemplate these agreements and commit to them.
