This is it, ladies and gents! The very last Summer Panel of 2017! We've had a ton of fun with this and are looking forward to jumping back into a regular blogging schedule. Coming soon, we have a couple video blogs (remember those?) and some more instructional, craft related posts.
We are so ready for fall!
But today! Today, we have one last question.
When you're not reading or writing, what feeds your creative soul?
Rest. I'm so busy going, going, going, I don't have time to think. The moment I get away and rest--give my brain time to think about nothing--ideas start rolling in. I love music. I love to sing. I love going to plays and concerts, but that doesn't inspire me. My brain needs peace and alone time to be inspired. And sometimes some pencils and some paper for drawing maps helps too.
Traveling is a big one for me. I love my desk and my routine, but getting away from both for a time dedicated to exploring and new experiences always leaves me feeling more creative. Also, learning. Whether it's podcasts, a sermon, or having a friend share a story from their own life, I find much inspiration from soaking up the wisdom of others.
