Clean Slate Creativity is a 4 week, step-by-step guide to help you wipe your creative slate clean and start fresh. Up in Week 2 is starting fresh. Let’s get to it!
Here’s the story. (If you missed Week 1, you can find it here).
Now that you have wiped your creative slate clean, you are ready to start fresh.
How does a kid approach creativity?
Imagine if you entered a room with paper and a basket of markers on the table. If you were a kid, mostly likely you would simply uncap a marker and dive in. As an adult, more likely you might preface it with something like, “well I am not good at drawing, but…” or “I am a horrible artist.”
It’s like we expect everyone to judge every mark we make (I guess we get that from years in school). Anyway, clean slate creativity is about starting over.
Today, I’m not going to waste time convincing you that you are in fact creative. Since you wiped your creative slate clean, you are basically going back to childhood when everyone knows that they are creative. Instead, I’m going to prove to you that you are creative. I hope you’ll join me in completing a few simple exercises. Download your worksheets here if you haven’t already done so.

This is where we stop for week 2. I promised it wouldn’t be too much work at once:) Hold onto these worksheets for next week. You are going to analyze your response to each exercise. See you next week!
