Spark Your Creativity with the 5 Senses: Go All Visual
This is #1 in a series of articles on Creativity and Inspiration for Writers. Tips shared here are inspired by my ebook, Overcome Writer’s Block, and will soon also be part of a course at We Write Books community.
Many authors turn to words for sustenance, and to feed their imaginative self. But they sometimes neglect to feed the part of themselves that nurtures their image making ability: visual art.
I love going to museums, and one of my favorite local museums is the SFMOMA.
I also love to play with pastels, and just doodle.
I also get a visual by enjoying landscapes and cityscapes.
When I stand in front a painting that captures my heart and takes my breath away, I feel transported into a new place I’ve never been; I feel a new story tickling at the back of my mind. I bank that story away into my subconscious for it to become something at a later date.
And visual art is one of my favorite ways to do this.
What is your favorite visual art?
