Market Monday: Spinning a Creative Web

Market Monday Focus: Your INNER Spider

The Spider urges you to take a look at your art work and CREATE!

Every morning, I look out my window and see a finished web.  If I wake up just when the sun rays greet the sky, the web is lined with drops of dew.  There’s something magical about the way the water beads up on the silky surface.  Later on in the day, a buffet of insects line the sticky web.  The Spider does not get angry at the insect for “ruining” the web and continues the cycle anew.  The constant renewal of the spider’s web, reminds me how life is filled with our imaginations constantly “catching” ideas around us.  If we stay still or move around, we are bound to catch a shiny idea in our spirit pool of creativity.

What are some ways you can channel your inner spider and harvest the rich world of ideas you’re currently immersed in?  If your creative spirit pool feels dry, revisit an old childhood home or a secret hideaway.  Scour the newspapers (yes, the paper one) for ideas and clip the stories that resonate with you.  Think of other activities you could do that will enable you to “catch an idea” in your creative web.

If you’re feeling the need to be mesmerized by the web-making process, watch the Spiny Orb Weaver Spider Spinning a Web.

Like the Spiny Orb Weaver Spider or another spider you might identify with a little better, you are a creative spider who weaves words together to form a wonderful story.  Whenever you feel the creative mode strike, type the idea snippet in your phone, use the voice recorder, and/or write your idea down on a piece of paper or napkin.

Each time you string your words together, you are taking on the spider spirit.  Your amazing ability to create a written experience for your readers to read is very much needed and important.
