Creativity Explored: a challenge to you

Recently I issued a ‘Challenge’ to some MyFrenchLife members and I wanted to extend it to YOU:
Do you consider yourself creative?
How do you express your creativity?
Drawing, writing, painting, or … what else.
Let me know
perhaps we can collaborate and develop a project together.

Creativity at daily examples

At we often find ourselves speaking about creativity and daily we exercise our creative spirits.
Personally, I’d shrivel up and die without ongoing opportunities to live creatively.

Life lessons from French literature:
I find that my most creative moments within the MyFrenchLife context are
when working on content creation with Contributors – and I love it.

This is an ongoing exercise…
and I was reminded the other day about this little series,
which was a combined creative exercise between Jessica Rushton and myself.
Here is the result – 12 lessons from French Literature – a Series:
