Creativity can be an elusive quality and to many, one they can never achieve. However, it is something everyone has, and in this article I’ll go through three ways you can maximise your creative juices.
Make it fun
As kids, we spend a lot of time playing, be with toys, crayons or with each other. When we grow older we often forget that playfulness when it comes to creating stories. Coming up with new lands, characters and stories is, in essence, playtime. If you’re struggling with your inner critic, take a moment to imagine stuffing them in a box and taping it up. You’re now free to explore your creative mind with childness abandon.
Release that self pressure valve
A lack of creativity may be a result of putting too much pressure on yourself. Take a beat and relax. You’re creating a webcomic not doing heart surgery. The time you spend worrying could be put to creating something fun, so try not to take it too seriously.
Create what is true to you
Trends change, what looks good is subjective and gimmicks come and go. What draws people into a story is, in part, what the author has to say. Worried about writing a superhero comic in an oversaturated market? Do it anyway! Concerned that people don’t think sci-fi is interesting? Do it anyway! What matters is the story you want to tell from your perspective. You will find your audience, even if it’s only a couple of people regardless of trends.
Remember, creativity is about letting loose and exploring ideas in a new way. So let your mind go!
