Have you ever started a creative writing project with great excitement, only to have your interest dwindle as the process, itself, interfere with your creativity? How do you keep the momentum going and continue to enjoy the creative process? Follow these tips for high creativity, fun and success!

1.Create a writing environment that inspires you.
Create a place in your home or outdoors that calls you to write. Consider light, color, sound, scent, taste, writing materials.

2.Follow The Artistís Way, by Julia Cameron.
I highly recommend this book. It keeps you focused, observant, playful, and creative - and it keeps you believing in yourself as a writer!

3.Choose your writing project in a joyful way.
When choosing a writing project, come from your heart - not your head. Be playful. Be creative about how you choose your project.

4.Make a creative representation of the projectís ideal end.
Draw, paint - use a creative medium other than writing to represent the completed project. Consider, especially, how you will feel when itís done. Put your model in a prominent place. Use this to trigger the desired feeling, before the completion - every day!

5.Make a timeline with celebration points.
Make it visually appealing. Have a step-by-step outline and celebrate creatively as you complete each step.

6.Create an R&D Team for your project.
Contact a number of your friends, colleagues, and readers. Invite them to join your R&D Team. Send them snippets of what you write, questions you have about the process, or anything else you want input on - on a regular basis. Their input will keep you going.

7.Keep Creating & Editing times separate.
If you edit while you write, the process can become boring. Clearly block a specific amount of time for editing into your schedule. Donít let it interfere with your creative writing time!

8.If blocked, shake things up!
Do something fun, unusual, active! Get your mind somewhere else and move your body. Your creative side will work in your subconscious while youíre at play. Read the tips in The Artistís Way. There are also many resources on the internet for handling writersí block. Check some of these links: http://owl.english.purdue.edu/handouts/general/gl_block.html

9.Have a Fan Club.
Critics and editors are fine, but have a few friends or family members who you can ask to cheer you on or cheer you up, no matter what you write. Hire a Creativity Coach to keep you focused and to be an unbiased supporter of your creative success!

10.Celebrate in a big way!
When you reach the big finish, give it a big finish! Do something youíve always wanted to doComputer Technology Articles, but have never done before. Make the finish so memorable that youíll be eager to begin your next creative writing project!
