How to be creative: It was never a secret after all

Today I was lucky enough to stumble upon a blog by Scott Berkun. It really caught my attention as he released a book about company culture, which is really relevant to my current work situation and very much under the spotlight. But, then I visited his blog and he had a link to his most read blogs, which is always really interesting to see what people love reading about. The first entry (not to my surprise, as it’s my personal number one most asked question!), is How to be Creative: the short honest truth. Of course I read it.  I want to be creative, I want to be interesting, I want to be good! The answer?… WORK. You have to work at being creative. By learning and doing it over and over. As you learn new techniques. The more you learn the more you can do, the more you can do the more creative you can be. This was never a secret.

Clearly, my avoidance technique (the one I recently adopted) was not helping. Time to get back to work!

While I was not being very creative in Second Life, I have been a little more creative in real life. Winter has finally arrived and I have been out and about in the snow.

Winter arrived ♡♡♡

Have a great day working hard!

I’m a Fangirl

Seriously, I had to go search what “fangirl” meant.  Can you tell I’m not 18? Well I’m not middle aged, but when I was 18 it was called “groupies”.  Or maybe it’s just an American term, which I’m not.

I really do love music and a really wide variety. That made it hard to decide what to do with today’s blog. I was thinking to pick a band and blog about it, but it was too hard, there are too many I like, but not one I go crazy about. Then I wondered does fangirl only apply to bands or singers?

So again, I searched and it came up with this: An obsessive female fan (usually of movies, comic books, or science fiction).

Ohh Obsession! Such a negative word. I prefer to change it to “passion” or “admiration”. There are a lot of people in Second Life that I admire. I love their creativity, their passion and skill. But the following three people really inspire me. I love their work, the uniqueness, the detail.  They are Magissa Denver – view her work here, Rubina – view her work here and Strawberry Singh – view her work here.

I guess I’m a fangirl!
