Combo Apps/Elizabeth Gilbert: Your elusive creative genius

Tonight I wanted to share a video with you all because of a Facebook post I saw from a friend. Someone showed me this video a long time ago of Elizbeth Gilbert (Eat Pray Love) talks about writers block and the genius whose always with us. After I watched this video (the first time) everything I ever did from playing trumpet in high school to drawing, painting and taking photos to editing them. Made sense of how the creative process has worked for me. I looked back on high school when I played trumpet. There was times when I felt like someone took over inside me and was playing the trumpet for me. It’s like that now when I take photos and edit them. There’s always someone there with me when I take photos. What they’ll do is point things out or call out and tell me to take the photos. This is why I’d prefer to be by myself when I go out taking pictures. It’s like that when I edit photos on my iPhone or iPad. I listen to music to tune out the world because the world can be too distracting. No one bothers me when I have my earbuds and music turned up. Music also helps with my editing so I can watch the process unfold before my very eyes. It can be quite magical at times. As I edit there is a guide with me telling me what apps to use, how to use these apps and telling me what to do next. This could be why my style of editing keeps changing and always evolving. I still watch this video from time to time to remind me of how the creative process works, so I don’t get lost in my mental block. Enjoy the video and your elusive creative genius.
