Creative work is play. It is free speculation using the materials of one’s chosen form. ~Stephen Nachmanovitch~
We are reading The Artist’s Way by Julia Cameron in a book discussion group (you can follow along on my other blog), and this quote was in the chapter we are working on right now. There are a lot of great quotes in this book, as well as great content, so I am always finding something interesting.
I liked the idea behind this quote. The notion that we can just PLAY at being creative. I preach this all the time! Just PLAY! And use whatever means you want, to PLAY at being creative! It’s all good and wonderful. What are you creating? Are you having fun and playing? Or are you working?
