As a creative writer, I see inspiration as a battery that needs to be filled with ideas. However, like all batteries, it requires maintenance to function properly. That’s why I make it a daily practice to take care of the amount of creativity that I maintain in my battery.
Think of your creativity as a battery that needs to be filled with a limited amount of inspiration and energy. Certain activities can drain it completely, while others can help recharge it. Over the years, I have experimented with various activities to find out what works for me.
One of my main sources of inspiration is nature. I find that nature bathing, or simply being in nature, helps me recharge my creativity. However, this may not work for everyone. We are all different and may find that what works for one person may not necessarily work for another.
To find new and inspiring ideas, I like to turn to the work of modern illustrators. I enjoy looking at drawings of different dimensions and imagining unreachable worlds. I also love spending hours analyzing images of fictional characters, looking for those that are not common, new cartoons that did not become part of the mainstream.
Reading is also a great source of inspiration for me. Recently, I read “Monkey King” by Wu Cheng’en, which was an amazing experience. I loved discovering the secrets of a culture so far from my own. It was a journey that I didn’t want to end.
Music is another great source of inspiration for me. I recently attended a tango concert, which was an amazing experience. Seeing the musicians live on stage was truly inspiring, and I would love to have more opportunities like this.
Lastly, I cannot stress enough the importance of physical activity. Taking care of your mind and body is crucial to keeping your inspiration battery charged. That’s why I have a daily routine of meditation and exercises that help me be in the best possible condition.
In conclusion, everyone’s inspiration battery is unique and requires individual maintenance. Finding what works for you is a journey that requires experimentation and self-reflection. Remember that all human activities require creativity and inspiration, so no matter what you do, always take care of your inspiration battery, and it will take care of you.
