White Space for Creativity

Being productive, getting stuff done can be the dream of creatives!  Do you think of yourself as a linear or non-linear thinker? Are your a creative and a dreamer or more blank and white in your approach to life? Have a look at this picture for example... does it make you want to piece all these pages together and colour them in or straighten them up first?  Or something else entirely... This is the section of my blog I write about creativity and productivity together.  I love to share my productivity secrets, successes, vulnerabilities and processes so you can try them out. There is a creative way in to everything I do and people often really connect to the way I like to work and want to try it out for themselves. <img class="alignnone wp-image-1155 size-full" src="https://creativelyconscious.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/01/img_1535-e1549660319329.jpg" alt="" width="3024" height="4032" />
