Creativity Tips: Get the Party Started!

It's the weekend! And, thanks to this link from Lezlie, we have just the thing to get your party started. Watch this video of a young conductor and ask yourself, "When was the last time I put my whole heart and soul -- and body! -- into a creative endeavor?"

If you can't remember the last time, no worries. That's what today is for!

Think your creative outlet doesn't lend itself to physical input? Think again. You can write standing up. Painting? Totally physical. Photography? Change your physical angle and you change your shot. Heck, even cooking is physical. We might as well dance around the kitchen!

P.S. to Lezlie: The new site looks great!

Do you think I use enough exclamation marks? I mean, really! Lots of exclamation marks! I must be really excited about the weekend!

Thanks so much for your kind words, and I'm glad you enjoyed my post! Finding new music is always fun, and I'm open to any suggestions; they help me learn what styles my followers like (one girl hates Flyleaf, for example, so I try not to post their songs repeatedly, while several love Muse, one of my favorite bands, so I don't hesitate to post them when I want to but try not to be excessive). If there are any bands/artists you are particularly fond of, feel free to share :D. And no problem about the plug-I just really love your blog and think many of those who read mine, several of whom are writers, would enjoy it as well :).

P.S. I'm ridiculous with the hyphens, commas, and ands, so I wouldn't feel too bad if I was you :).
