In Others’ Words: Creativity

Beth Vogt Fun, In Others' Words 18 Comments

I’ve followed a few hunches in my life … sometimes I’ve walked through an open door and sometimes I’ve walked right into a brick wall.

But at least I was moving forward, right?

I love the idea of intertwining a hunch with creativity — splashing that “Maybe this will work” feeling with a bit of red and blue and purple and green and yellow. That’s the best way to treat a hunch: with lots of color, some time to simmer, and the permission to flourish.

In Your Words: Ever follow a hunch? Where’d you end up? I’d love for you to join the conversation and tell us about it.

  1. I love to follow hunches, they lead such delightful places! Like one lonely Friday night at the ACFW conference several years ago, I took someone up on an invitation to a Pizza party and look where it ledβ€”My Book Therapy! I wouldn’t have such wonderful friends, mentors, and encouragers in my life today if I hadn’t.

  2. Ooh, I just had this experience in my writing this week. Something has felt off about my opening scenes for awhile and yesterday morning I had a little niggle of, “hmm, try this…just see where it goes…” I got so excited as that hunch came to life. And then…

    And then it was 7:30 and I realized I was supposed to be at work in half an hour. Hehehe…

    Also, I love Frank Capra. πŸ™‚

  3. Liked this, Beth. One hunch I followed was to tell a certain friend about this crazy story idea I had. And wouldn’t you know that friend told me to write it?! I’m so glad you did. I love walking this road with you. πŸ˜‰
