    Everyday I devote 20 minutes to drawing before I go to bed. I'm not great and I have never taken any classes, but it helps me relax. Getting into that creative zone feels awesome.

    What's your creative outlet?

    Writing on RJ and on other websites and at work. I have no artistic talent whatsoever. All my intellect went into the memory, information retention and analytical side of things.

    I definitely need to devote more time to a creative outlet. The first thing that came to mind was making up new fantasies if/when I am 'self petting' lol (a term used by a Nigerian priest who taught a class on Christian Sexual Ethics during my undergrad. The course was a riot)

    As far as creative goes ...

    * Writing ... fiction nonfiction - words are truly modeling clay for the mind

    * Art ... drawing/ painting/ museum hoping/ decorating ... it's all good icon_biggrin.gif

    wow, got it,

    if you are in creative environement 80% of uptime, you have to do something different..)

    generally, i use sport/sx activities as a non-creative stuff, but it's not best choice if the vital energy would be needed later for other purposes
    any ideas??

    Before law school I was an actor and a dancer. Needless to say performing is still my creative outlet. In fact, a close friend and I are working on a "winter project" that will hopefully blow your socks off. That's what I love about NYC, you have so many options, you can do whatever you want to really if you put in the requisite effort.

    Singing and Dancing.

    I'm actually preparing for a winter concert...yay! Singing Ave Maria in Latin.
    I can't dance anymore after blowing out my knee at least not like I used to.

    every day is creative - I own a marketing company.

    But for my personal creativity, I recently started Oil Painting again. (Nice to see that I haven't forgotten all the teachings from my years studying in Europe.)

    Besides that, cooking.

    I compose music. Mostly electronic stuff. More on the experimental side than on the dance/club music side. Currently working on some interesting vocal pieces. We'll see where it takes me !
