So I’ve decided to make this mini book a memento of reading the book “Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind.” I enjoyed the book lots and wanted to remember the list of 10 Things that Creative People Do Differently. Today’s page is about Daydreaming.

Another one of the 10 Things that Creative People Do Differently is Solitude. I know I need it to process and recharge.

Today’s item from the 10 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently list is : Imaginative Play. I’m in love with those Art Deco sideways stairs.

I worked in my Wired to Create journal and prepped two canvases for collaging. Fun day in the studio! If these two pieces fit with the others I have set aside for a possible show, I’m going to submit my application. Excited and nervous and scared and ALL THE EMOTIONS AT ONCE.
