I’ve been thinking about creativity this past week, and I’ll be discussing it in this week’s issue of the ezine.
As freelancers, we tend to pay lip service to creativity, rather than doing it.
There are many reasons for this. If you’re working with a client, and he wants keyword content, you give it to him. He’s paying you, after all. In addition, with most clients, you just don’t have the time to spend on being truly creative.
But what about when you’re working on your own projects, when you have nothing to lose? Then, you can write what YOU want to write. How creative and innovative are you then?
Sadly, many freelancers find themselves holding back — “stuttering” I call it. You’ll read more about stuttering in this week’s issue of the ezine; they play follow the leader, instead of aiming for unique, and creative content.
I found a wonderful example of creativity here:
My unique twist was to change the saying to “Keep Calm and Hang On”. I also replaced the crown on the poster with an outline of a hanger. See what I did? (see right)
Share your thoughts in the comments.
Do you have the time to be as creative as you’d like to be? If not, what’s holding you back?
