What makes us creative?
What gives us a spark?
Turns out the muse lives within us all - on the right side of our brains.
Our left brains, the side we use most often, governs organization and detail. It lets us multi-task e-mail and blogs and deadlines. The majority of people in the developed world favor the left side of their brains.
Accessing the right side - the emotional, creative side of the brain can be a challenge requires some effort. Two of the best ways to tap into that right-sided creativity are meditation and repetitive exercise. So, if you see me on a treadmill with my eyes closed chanting 'oommm' don't worry about my sanity. I'm just trying to find creative solutions for the problems in my novel.
