Someone once said to me that anyone can draw. I didn’t really believe it at the time and I’m still not entirely convinced but what I do know is that if we feel creative we shouldn’t allow fear of failure to stop us. Creativity isn’t just about drawing either; blog writing is a creative pursuit, as is baking, woodwork and inventing things to name just a few. Everyone has a creativity of some description inside them somewhere, maybe we just need to let it out?
