Have you noticed that you feel different in different environments? I’m sure you have so you probably wondered how is that impacting your life, besides your mood, thoughts and emotions.
As for everybody, this pandemic had a huge impact over my life, especially since I’m working from home since March. Because of this and the fact that I’m very comfortable in my environment, I concentrated more on work, which involves a lot of coding and tech stuff and this is pretty different than what writing involves.
I dare to say that my environment killed my creativity. The good part is that it can be revived somehow. To do this, I think about changing my environment when I want to write something.
If you remember, a while back I wrote a piece about the up side of driving. What I also noticed about myself is that when I’m in my car and the traffic is light, I get all kind of ideas, therefore, my creativity lives in my car. And thanks to this, I’ll transform my car in my writing environment. I’ll go there and have a chat with my creativity about my thoughts to find something other than “if’s” and “for’s”.
I must say that this piece is not written in the car, but I had a short conversation with Troy that made me realize I haven’t wrote anything in a while. And I remember I used to love writing so what happened? A change in my environment happened. Work came in and threw creativity out. And poor old creativity had to live in the car for so long without any company. That needs to change!
What kind of environment do you have? A creativity enhancer or a creativity killer?
