Creative Style

I read this on Rory’s blog (above), and he got it from Wondering Belle’s Blog. Go visit these blogs! There’s a quiz you can take to learn about your creativity (link below). Here’s my creative style:

CREATIVITY IS A RELEASE For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life–making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear–you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside and that unites spontaneity and strength, freedom, power and movement.

I think this is a pretty good description of me and my creativity. I began writing because I needed to express how I was feeling even though I didn’t know that at the time. I was 11.

My First Meme

Some of my friends on Facebook create memes, and many of them are hilarious, especially if they touch on inside jokes. I wanted to try my hand at it so after Googling for apps, I chose: Meme Generator by ZomboDroid (not an ad!). It’s pretty easy to use: add text to one of their images, or upload one of your own and add text, as you can see here (right).

It’s not the greatest meme (although I think it’s pretty funny, of course–I was an English major!), but our dog, Rudy, got that ruff in a BarkBox, and I absolutely had to try it on him! Then, the line from Shakespeare’s Macbeth popped into my head and the rest is history! Don’t worry–I’m not going to bombard my blog with memes!
