012: Inspiration Reach

Inspiration can be hard to come by some days. You might have to step out of your routine, out of the norm and out of what you normally create. Like one of my favorite author’s Julia Cameron suggests in her book, The Artist’s Way, sometimes you have to take yourself on an artist date.

There are a lot of places you can go to when pulling inspiration to create and in this episode that’s exactly what we’ll be talking about. I’ll be talking about why you might want to consider expanding your usual creative activity and trying something completely new. I also discuss some of the ebbs and flows we go through as creators.

I want to encourage you to try your own inspiration reach. Try something new, something different or maybe even something you used to enjoy but no longer do. Set your ambiance by playing music that fills you up, light a delicious smelling candle or even try changing the location that you’re creating from. The possibilities are endless!

What you’ll find in this episode:

  • A spotlight of a creator that’s been inspiring me
  • The default places people search for inspiration
  • The differences between ideas and the motivation to create
  • How inspiration ebbs and flows 
  • Why you should reach out of your niche for rejuvenation
  • How you can expand the work you consume and create
