Keeping Your Creative Spark Alive!
So you’ve got your creative spark.... Now what? How do you keep that spark burning strong when life gets in the way? Twitter, FA, video games, movies, Netflix and Game of Thrones marathon weekends.... All these things and more claw at our free-time like ravenous were-beasts! How the heck are we going to get good at something, finish that painting, or novel, or song, or whatever, with all the distractions? How do you maintain your drive to pursue your art-of-choice when you’ve just gotten a new boy/girl-friend... or just gone through a breakup... or you’re overworked at your job or school? What’s the difference between motivation and discipline, and how can you make these tools work for you? RainFurrest’s musical guest of honor Amadhia “Dreamsong” shares her own techniques and experiences for maintaining the Creative Spark through adversity, successes, and über-busy schedules!
