QUICK Q for you, Dear Readers: When is the last time you drew a picture? Painted with watercolors?
I’m a writer, sure, but it’s important to break your mold from time to time and experiment with new forms of expression. It's especially important to share whatever you do, "ship it", and FINISH—even if it's incomplete.
Why, you ask? Especially if it’s a different medium or outlet than your day-in day-out “norm”, it may help you understand whatever project you’re working on that much better.
If you’re not a creative, per se, what do you do to get out of your own head? Go for a bike ride? Finally cook a recipe from that Jamie Oliver cookbook?
We're here to tell you any and all of these "breaking the mold" activities may assist with your next breakthrough and general mental health. A perfect final product or not, it's vital to SEND IT out into the world—even when things are messy or imperfect.
