Kreative Blogger award

Isn't that a beautiful, kreativ* logo? So my old friend DarcKnyt (old in Internet years) has passed this award on to me, and I must say I am honored. It always surprises me when someone likes this place. The question that came with this was hard to answer, since I've only recently started feeling creative after a long dry spell.

List six things that inspire your creativity.

  1. Nature. When I commune with a tree or talk to a squirrel it fires me right up.

  2. Spirituality. I love to ponder the human/spirit connection. It's a theme that often shows up in my work. It's probably why I write fantasy.

  3. Conversation. This might spark my creativity more than anything. Even when I'm only conversing with myself, speaking ideas out loud seems to stimulate my brain.

  4. Writing with pen and paper. I don't know why I didn't use this device before. If I'm stuck on the computer, writing on paper unsticks me.

  5. Books. Reading other people's work gets me to thinking about my own. If it's a good book, I aspire to be as good. If it's bad, I get a boost because mine is better.

  6. My office. [updated link] That place, all mine, into which no negative energy may pass, calms me and makes me receptive to creative impulses.

Pass the award on to 7 more kreativ bloggers. Gosh, looking at my sidebar is looking at a blog graveyard. I really need to update that thing. I don't have 7 people to pass the award to (some on my sidebar have already received it), but I do have a few who astound me with their creativity on a regular basis.

  1. Marta, Writing in the Water

  2. Raquita, WOBL in Training

  3. D. Lynn Frazier, Writtenwyrdd

  4. Ian T. Healy, Perpetual Writer's Blog

If you're not reading these folks you're missing out. They embody creativity. (I just noticed all the ladies' blogs start with the letter "W". Heh.)

Link back to the person who gave you the award. Done did that up yonder.
Link to the people you are passing it on to and leave them a comment to let them know. I'm gonna go do that right now.

Thanks again, my buddy DarcKnyt.
*I thought it was misspelled for fun, but then I looked it up.

  1. There's a few of these awards on their way around the blogospere. It's always great to be acknowledged. Congrats


  2. I'm always slightly confused and yet still flattered when anyone gives me a compliment. And I worry I won't say anything clever in reply. Then I remember that my grandmother taught me better. So, thank you. You are appreciated and thoughtful.

    Thank you.

  3. Oh, and I'll post a proper reply too in a few days. I've got to think about it...

  4. Thanks! I'm in chaos and can't deal with posting at the moment, but I'll try and get on this meme in a few days! :)

  5. By the way, I agree that you are a creative blogger, too.

  6. Aw, thanks Wyrdd! And don't rush it, do it when/if you feel like it. You, too, Marta. I had to think about it for a while, too. I enjoyed this meme, though; especially because I hadn't thought about inspiration in a long time. I needed to.

    Trevas, welcome! Hope to see you around these parts again.

  7. An appropriate award for you hon. I'd have given it to you if he didn't beat me to it. :)

  8. I was going to say the same thing about you! lol

  9. can I play too?

    1. Water (shower, bath, ocean, river, lake, even doing the dishes sometimes...)
    2. Sex. Can't help it- I almost always have to get up and write stuff down instead of falling asleep. Usually completely unrelated to the moment.
    3. Tea. Peppermint, Earl Grey, Orange Pekoe, Lapsang Souchung; each has it's own creative stimulus effect.
    4. Music. But so, so random- it might be Regina Spektor, Al Green, Hip Hop. Right now it's EmmyLou Harris , MGMT or FleetFoxes.
    5. Other people's blogs about writing or conversation with my writing friends.
    6. Long drives by myself.

  10. Wow, what a great list! And you know, I knew I was missing somebody, I just couldn't think who. It was you. Sorry :) Too fixated on my blogroll graveyard, I guess.

    Thanks for playing, and please feel free to post the award on your own blog, Sarah, because you deserve it, too.
