Unleash Your Creativity – Pull The Curtain Back!

Sometimes it’s hard to describe what goes on in my quirky mind, but to unleash your creativity – pull the curtain back!

So amongst the many projects/tasks I am currently working on, largely to do with my Break Through The Barriers Of Redundancy book printed edition – I am on about 6th week of reformatting for the printed version as CreateSpace templates don’t work correctly – the margins setup clashes with page setup – and I had to start over – hence most nights only about 3-3.5 hours sleep recently – I am continuing with my Blog Book Tour.

This next interview for my tour; is like no other before, and I will be reblogging it here after I have completed the questions and it’s been published. It’s about 30 questions in total and is going on an asexual authors directory blog. (I am a heteroromantic asexual – only attracted to guys romantically, not sexually. I like kissing but not sex. I am a ‘Grey’ heteroromantic asexual, because I like ‘passionate’ kissing) Bear with me, I am going somewhere with this. I plan to write some asexual books and have a potential 3 mind.

So these questions she is asking me, are totally focused on me as a writer rather than my book. They are about me, my methodology as a writer, my writer’s mind; and really get into the nitty gritty of my life’s journey as a writer and how events in my life have shaped my writing.

One question was really tough to answer because it opened up old childhood memories of pain and upset – I just have to remember to come back to the now. Because now I love my life – but back then I hated it!

So one question is how I deal with writer’s block. The thing is, much to the frustration of other writer’s, I don’t really get it! I do however, experience things stopping my creativity.

There is a certain point in our minds, that the average person will go to. But there is far more intelligence and creativity that’s often neglected to be aware too. So I allow my creative mind to take over my normal brain to work its magic. The results are beautiful, but I have to let it flow naturally, in its own time, to get the best results.

Over the last couple of days and nights, I have been focusing much more in my mind, on my businesses and where I want to be headed with them. I am sat at the dressing table at work in my day job this morning; and as my thoughts are escalating with all of my future possibilities and options, I am literally pulling the curtain back in my mind and stepping into a new dimension of it. I close the curtain behind me and it feels different in there. Like the curtain was a cloud and is now behind me. At this point I picture the stage I am on from my book trailer, but I am on it on my own, in a safe cocoon of ideas and creative enlightenment. When I pull the curtain back and walk through onto that stage, it’s like I am accessing the other 80% of my brain and it’s like wow! It’s like being on a hilltop and seeing the wider view and perspective. It’s amazing. Can my brain handle all of this new stuff? Yes, it needs to, but I have to be respectful of it having to catch up! I am literally taking my mind to places its never been before and my brain is having to keep with it. So to unleash your creativity – pull back the curtain of your mind!

Embrace your quirky and each other’s.

Write soon

      1. Thanks Ralph. It’s going to be amazing, magical, and a dream come true. A 4D bus ride and 10 live shows, where I will be in Shrekland – so excited! I really can’t wait! I get to spend the day in London 9am – 8.45pm – bliss.

      2. I’m staying up late as well because there is a Blood Moon at 3am GMT (4am here) when I hope to get a photo of it as it’s such a clear night. I’ve also got to be up by 9am as Toni is cleaning the apartment then. It’s all go ! 😀 ❤

      3. I have a new Brazilian friend and he was asking me if I was seeing the eclipse – To be honest, I am not fussed about seeing it – Controversial shocker! I would rather get sleep to be up at 4am to go to see Shrek.
