I recently came across a book The Artist’s Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity by Julia Cameron that reminded me of a method my high school English teacher taught to increase creativity. It works and it works well. I don’t know why I forgot it. Here it is. Write. Yep it is that simply. It does not matter what your field is, writing helps increase your creativity. However, the writing technique is special. My High School English teacherÂ would have us write for 30 minutes non-stop. If we could not think of any thing to write, that is what we wrote, that we could not think of any thing to write. We just needed to keep writing non-stop. A point that can be missed here is that writing is the key, that is, the physical act of writing. Do not type it on a computer, write. There is something about the physical act of writing that causes the brain be creative. Something that typing will not allow. Second do not edit. Just write.Â Spelling does not count. Grammar and punctuation do not count. The only thing to worry about is writing. In her book Julia Cameron has a philosophy that I do not agree with but that does not mean her techniques for reawakening the creativity in your does not work. The book is well worth the read and applying the techniques in it will help you re-awaken your creative abilities.
