Can You Come Out to Play?

How I’d love to hear that question when I was a child! And how happy I was when my mother allowed me to join my little friends in making mudpies or playing tag or swinging on the swing. 

Studies consistently show that play is essential to creativity. Do you play to improve your writing? If not, I encourage you to start doing so. 

Play can take many forms: a walk (or run) through the woods; a day on the beach; a game of volleyball. Whatever re-energizes you can be play. 

Make time this week to play. Your writing will thank you for it. 🙂

  1. Thanks for the reminder, Mary Ann! I haven’t been out to play for a while because it’s just been so darn cold!

    But I have plans for a Fairy Garden in my back yard. I’m hoping I’ll have the resources to get it done in the spring so I can have a creative place to sit and think by summer.

  2. I needed this post today. With all the tasks staring me in the face on a daily basis, it’s hard for me to kick back and relax.

    Thanks for reminding me I need to rest and re-charge.

    Susan 🙂

  3. Just wanted to say that I played in the snow yesterday with my family! And will be playing with my granddaughter today. Who knows what I’ll discover that I can use in my writing?
