I like to think of creativity as a river. All the creativity and innovation in the world is in that river. You just have to wade the rivers of creativity and let it come to you. Sometimes it can take hours to capture the thing that piques your interest. Sometimes it comes to you in no time at all. When I was a kid, I remember playing in house corner for hours. I’d do my baby dolls laundry, organize the little space the way I wanted it, make dinner and feed my baby doll. I’d play so long I ended up sleeping in the house. I tell that story to remind us all that we have to let ourselves play for hours. We should play so long, we fall sleep doing it. I have to admit, lately I’ve got so much going on that I don’t have time to play creatively. I keep telling myself, things will get easier soon. Things will come together and give me more time to play and create and read and write the things I have fun writing about.

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily on improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with. View more posts
