Creativity – A 2017 Update

Hello friends,

In a flurry of inspiration, I posted a bunch of things about creativity at the start of 2016. In part, I looked back at what creative outlets I’ve had throughout my life. I also hoped that by sharing all of that, I’d kick myself in the ass to be write more and explore other ways to flex my imagination.

I’d give 2016 a “B-” as far as all that. I did some writing here and there, but not as much as I’d like to.

I do have some positives though, that justify a grade in the “B” range!

  • For those of you who follow this blog, you might recall in my post Creativity: Then and Now that for many, many years, I played a dice and card game called Champions of the Galaxy from Filsinger Games. Well, after over a decade away from the game, I took the plunge and started playing back in September. Since then, I’ve been playing a few times a week. And I’ve gone old school. I write up events, keep track of results, and write summaries, all in a notebook with actual pens. No computers involved. And it’s a whole lot of fun and just as creatively inspiring now as it was when I was a kid.
