I is for Inkling
Have you ever thought about an inkling, and how it could become a Creative Block Hack? Well, obviously I have. Before we get into my thoughts on it though, let's have a look at the word and some of its synonyms through this wordle:
Now, when I first thought of the letter “I” in relation to Creative Block Hacks, I thought of the word Intuition and from there somehow I got onto the good old Inner Child. Seeing how I’m not trained in psychology, I don’t want to be a hack, when speaking of Creative Block Hacks, in relation to the Inner Child, so I decided to leave that precious parcel to more qualified people to discuss. Still, when you look back at the wordle above, there are many enticements there that would speak gently to your Inner Child, but enough on that topic already, at least from me.
I have a vested interest in inklings. They fuel my written and painted work, and I believe they can help you find clarity in yours as well.
New Directions & more…
Trust your gut
Listen to the quietest voices, and pay attention to niggling notions.
Follow your inklings
Play with them, and let them lead the way.
In no time at all, your inklings will become things that lead you out of from being stalled or muddled.
Slowly and almost as imperceptibly as an inkling, you’ll find yourself back on that Creative Path paved by your dreams.
