Joanne DeMaio on creativity

Joanne DeMaio from Whole Latte Life made an interesting comment on creativity. I’m excited to share it with you.

Creativity is a fickle process. Sometimes we just can’t make the connection between our intent and inspiration. That’s when we turn to our team, our support, our cheerleaders. As much as the creative process seems solitary, it’s not. There’s a network behind what makes it to the page, the radio, the exhibit, the table, the stage.

  2. And I'm always amazed, Cheryl, at how much of that team is right here on the blogs. My call for ideas on yesterday's post brought forth all kinds of cheers, ideas and insight, into one simple photograph. It was fascinating to watch the thoughtful comments the team contributed.


  3. I agree. My team has always been my “readers.” For years, before the Internet, there were my newspaper column readers. They kept me going when I felt like quitting sometimes, when the deadlines got to be too much, week after week. I've added blog readers to the bunch … though I have to admit, I have not been able to keep up with everyone's blogs as often as I would like this year …


  4. Hi Joanne,

    Sorry to respond so late but I've been busy eating up the time generated by not having to babysit my granddaughter all day.

    I'm excited about my studies again and they are moving at a comfortable pace, got to two weeks ahead with the weekly column (trying to bring it up to four ahead) and working feverishly on a couple of long-outstanding goals.

    My second grandchild, a boy, Gabriel Liam entered my life on Friday afternoon, at 5lbs 13oz. So my pace has changed slightly.

    But I digress.

    Ah yes, the network of creatives – can't create without them, can't create with them. (I didn't write that wrong.)


  5. Oh Cindy,

    I'm thrill to have you visit or more correctly, pop in.

    Our readers – so precious, so encouraging when we're spent and asking ourselves the “to quit or not to quit” question.

    I am glad you have embraced the sentiments, encouragements of your readers because I get to continue enjoying your writing.
