Creativity Blog Series - First Entry

Dear Diary,

Today I feel about as energized and creative as the garden snail stuck to my patio door. Slinking around aimlessly, leaving behind a trail of debris for someone else to clean up… My live-in boyfriend is a lucky guy. I’m feeling especially under-inspired after taking a questionnaire to gauge my current level of creativity only to learn that I fall into the lowest catchment affectionately known as the “danger zone”. But “don’t worry”, it reassures, “this is no indication of your creative potential”. Well thank goodness. Admittedly, I am forever critical of my work and constantly doubting my creativity. I should give myself, and this snail, a little more credit. After all, I live on the third floor of an apartment building. So whether he climbed aboard the ‘blackbird express’ or is simply a determined mountaineer, my slimy friend is certainly pushing the envelope here. I’d like to think I’m capable of the same from time to time (not specifically scaling apartment buildings… I’ll leave that to Spiderman). On the topic of pushing boundaries, it got me thinking about how marketing is doing this today…. And so began my lengthy escapade across the wonderful world-wide web. (How’s that for alliteration!?)

Tah-tah for now!
