What’s Your Creative Style?

I found a Creativity Test and this was the result after 8 questions that I could have said “none of the above” to a few, and amazingly this fits me!

Creativity is a release

For you, creativity is first and foremost a form of expression: it creates a special link between the internal and external worlds. It allows you to get a grasp of your powerful emotions, by moulding them into a physical form. In fact, the most important thing for you is to be able to release your emotions. You need to be able to touch them or look at them in concrete form, and to do that you have to find a way to make them come alive. This is how your desires and anxieties take shape. Keeping things bottled up creates a tension that can only be resolved once you have expressed how you feel. This means you have to be strong enough not to let yourself get swept away by chaotic impulses; if you turn your creative urges on everyday life — making a picnic, singing to the baby, choosing what to wear — you can express yourself while staying rooted in reality. Creativity is principally cathartic. It relieves a deep need, an almost primal, archaic impulse. For you, being creative is about having the power to give form to something you feel, to those deep personal issues that are often raw and disorganised. For these reasons you are usually attracted to art that demands physicality, that allows you to express what’s inside, and that unites spontaneity, strength, freedom, power and movement.

Fun, Short story, Tell The Story

Tell the Story

img_2612Kristian included me in the Tell the Story prompt and I haven’t had the wherewithal to sit down and respond until now.  So sorry Kristian! (*Hands over face*)


I looked around as we went down this long drive lined by trees with a questioning look on my face.

“Well you always wanted to be a princess in a renaissance castle.  So now you are.” Maggie said as we came to a stop.

I was wondering why they had me dress in this renaissance garb and head-dress.  We had reached a castle and as they guided me inside, I saw my friends were all standing around talking.  When we walked through the grand doors our presence was announced.  I could feel my cheeks flush and we continued to proceed to the long table prepared in front of us and in front of all.  They had me sit in the middle beside my best friend and our other friends sat on either side of us.  We were the royalty for the night.

We danced and had our fill of food and drink.  I was the happiest girl in the world!


I continue this Tell the Story challenge by nominating the following bloggers to post any type of response at all to the picture below:
