Creativity Takes Practice

Creativity takes practice.

Students often tell me that they are not creative, as though it is that simple, you either are creative or you aren't. Creativity is like anything, if you wish to be good at it you must practice, and the more you practice the better that you will become.

Don't dismiss your lack of creative ideas, by saying that you were not born to be creative. We were all born to be creative, with only a few that choose to go through the hard and painful struggle of practicing creativity.

The practice of being creative is always searching for the perfect point where you have pushed a piece or an idea far enough that it is new and innovative. That it brings a new perspective, but that you at the same time, do not push it to fair and send it crashing over the edge.

If you want to be creative, practice, practice, practice, and then practice some more.
