“I am a writer, I swear!” 

Authors and writers everywhere,

I’m sure we’ve all had the thought, “Please don’t let the NSA be watching my search history. I swear I’m not actually…”

1. Planning on killing someone.

2. Poisoning someone.

3. Trying to figure out how to cover up a real crime. 

4. I don’t actually think I’m a fairy, I just need to see what it would feel like!

5. I don’t actually do illegal drugs, I just need to know what the effects are!

I have had the craziest searches online and each time I tell myself, you’re a writer it’s okay! 

Let’s put it this way. I believe that writing is one of the only professions where you’re encouraged to talk to imaginary friends. We’re insane, but we use a creative outlet making it okay. Right? 

So NSA, FBI, SVU, or whoever is reading this…If my search history contains random things like how to make a cake then immediately after looking up how people bleed from different areas… Don’t arrest me! I promise it’s just research! 

Haha, thought this would be a fun blog to write. 

Hope you liked it,

Ally

Traits of the Creative Mind – Discipline and Playfulness

Hello Internet Universe,

Today’s blog is a following with the series about the traits of the creative mind and talking about our ease with thoughts and abilities but also the certain discipline that we must muster to be able to do what we do.

We have all of these ideas in our mind that we have to write down to keep us sane. And I’m sure that like me, most of you feel compelled to write. Maybe I’m a little off but sometimes I feel like I have to write to make what I’m trying to say sound more understandable to other people. Half the time, if I speak it doesn’t come out the way I hope. What happens to you when you don’t write things down?

But on top of our creativity we have to have the discipline to follow our ideas through. That could be really difficult at times, at least for me. Like right now, I pulled up a movie and trying to watch it while writing this blog which is causing me to take twice as long to write this all out.

My views, however, don’t quite matter compared to your own. Everyone’s opinions matter to themselves. And I am really getting off on a tangent now.

Either way, we possess an odd paradox within ourselves that make us who we are. We can read all these blogs and websites to see if what we know about ourselves is common or if we’re alone. But are we ever really alone? Especially in this day and age.

That’s it for today,

Traits of the Creative Mind – Physical Energy

Hello Internet Universe,

If you go to Google and search up Traits of the Creative Mind, one will find many websites claiming they have the answer. And on every site I had checked, number one was always the same. We, as creatives, have an immense amount of physical energy. I laughed at this when I first read it until I went to Psychology Today’s website to do a little more research. They had an article and explained all the bulletin points extremely clearly.

They explained how that we don’t necessarily have a sense of hyperactivity. We  just focus the energy we do have more efficiently. Also, we are known to take quite a few naps, but are more productive when we do such. After that in the bulletin point, they begin in with more of a Freudian approach to our paradoxical ways.

To try to keep things more of a G-rating, I’m not going to go onto talking about anything else. So click on the link above for more information. And I’ll be turning this into another series so to say like the character description one that I started last Friday.

Does this explain you? Comment below your thoughts!
