    12 Creativity Tricks That Will Totally Inspire You

    Stop telling yourself you're not creative, and start telling yourself you're the next Picasso.

    1. Try working from a café, because a little noise will actually do your imagination good.

    2. Ignore the little voice that keeps telling you you're not a true creative, and fake it 'til you make it.

    3. Give your mind permission to wander, because you'll burn out really quickly if you push yourself to focus for hours at a time.

    4. When creating, dig deeper into your own experiences so you aren't leaning on cliché, overused tropes.

    5. Write all of your ideas down...and then get them out of your sight so they aren't distracting you.

    6. Write a few pages every morning to clear out the cobwebs, and establish a habit of actually getting some writing done.

    7. Or do it at the end of the day when you're totally exhausted.

    8. Let yourself get totally bored because that's when your mind starts to wander into something awesome.

    9. Keep your "darlings" in a separate file so you don't actually have to kill them.

    10. Join a team of other creators so you have people to rely on when the going gets tough.

    11. Stop judging yourself and take that first step because imperfect action is better than no action at all.

    12. And remember that you have the skills to get it done, and that the hard work will be worth it in the end.

    Now go create your pants off!
