There are so many lists in the world of writing. Do this; don't do that. This one is a list of tenwith a few tongue-in-cheek's included. Read at the risk of laughter. We tend to need it after a long day of pecking away.

John Michel's curator insight, January 14, 2014 8:16 AM

Sustained creativity doesn’t come from a flash of brilliance or a single afternoon of inspiration. It comes from a consistent routine that serves as the bedrock for getting things done.

Penelope's curator insight, January 14, 2014 6:20 PM

 

This is a great post to start off the new year. Unique routines. We all have them. They can be fairly tame or outright crazy. I was especially interested in routines of the writers in the bunch.

 

Best-selling author Cheryl Strayed on the importance of writing daily:

"Writing forces you to locate your clarity."

 

Radio host Garrison Keillor makes sure to get into the “observable world.”

 

See if you can find a routine that sparks a new idea in you!

“The creative process shrivels in the absence of continual dialogue with the soul. And creativity is what makes life worth living.” Jungian analyst and author Marion Woodman, quoted in my article Spirituality and Creative Expression http://blogs.psychcentral.com/creative-mind/2011/02/spirituality-and-creative-expression/

Julianna Bonola's curator insight, July 29, 2014 1:19 AM

This is great news for people who already have a spiritual life, but what about those that don't I hear you ask.  Well mindful meditation can help here.  Problem is, most people don't make the time to learn this discipline until it's way too late, then when they really need it, the discipline isn't there.  Ask anyone who  hasn't made time for 'time out' in their lives, and they might tell you that it didn't seem necessary.  Well depression in the aged is at an all time high in this modern age.  Perhaps we should consider teaching this stuff in elementary school.  What are your thoughts around depression?  Most people I speak to tell it sucks.  Here is a worthwhile way of avoiding it - take the time to learn about, and be comfortable with your right hemisphere, it's actually a nice place to visit because when you leave it, you feel better all over.

Creating, launching a business takes energy and if you don't take care of yourself you won't have the energy necessary to sustain growth and to stay in business. If you are the business and you fall apart there is nothing left.

Sander Beutick's curator insight, January 11, 2014 8:09 PM

It is all about balance. even though designing and creating the actual software solution is still the magic.( no pen no paper, just an idea and allof sudden it starts to develop and evolves.. ). Yet health is key for a sharp mind. no sleep leads to some fun nights but the aftermath is killing. so.sports,  normal food., good nights rest every now and then and how obvious it may seem, read a challenging book;  leave the laptop  on the desk. (meaning no coding in pyama's ) and allow the  off day that sits there from time to time. Humans want to manage everything.. we should stop doing so.. John Lennon said it and i stick to that...

(so far the softer side of me, now back to the matrix!)

Rona Lewis's curator insight, January 13, 2014 11:42 AM

Adds to my point to take care of yourself first, then you're better able to take care of everything else!
