What is creativity? To me, a creative life is meaningful and I wouldn’t exist without it. And in my mind, everyone is creative in some way because it’s a form of expression.
But how do we define it? A limited definition of creativity would prevent many people from appreciating their own potential. It isn’t about the Arts. You don’t have to paint, draw, write or play a musical instrument.
So, what does a person need to pursue a creative life, and why do we need it? I think that an open and curious mind is all you need. And to be creative, or innovative, in the current economic climate equals survival.
Hello world, again. It was our intention to start a writing newsletter this week. Actually last week, on July 1. But sometimes life has other ideas and Les is stuck in hospital because a driver needs glasses, or a new brain. We still endeavor to bring you writerly stuff but things are on ‘pause’ just at this moment.
We are starting our ten week workshop sessions in August, so that’s something to look forward to. Something to get the brain going.
Welcome to Busybird Publishing & Design’s inaugural blog.
We have a lot going on at Busybird. At the moment, we’re busy looking for submissions for [untitled] issue five; putting together an anthology of peoples’ experiences with breast cancer, entitled Journey; and we’re also running writers’ workshops every Monday night — and that’s just the start of it all.
Keep in touch with our existing projects, and also with what we have in store for the future.
