Creativity is Allowing Yourself to Make Mistakes

Creativity_is_making_mistakesI’ve been loving this chalkboard trend. I decided to make a couple of my own with some favorite quotes. If you like the quote, feel free to download it and use it! (I also have a slightly bigger version, if you’d want.)

I love this Scott Adams quote. Sometimes when painting I have “happy accidents”. These are beautiful mistakes that I could never have done on purpose. When writing sometimes I deviate from my outline and follow a spontaeous idea, or a “mistake”. Half the time this deviation turns out wonderfully. Othertimes, I need to edit it out.

But it’s only when we give ourselves permission to make these mistakes can we explore!
