Creative Sunday: How we Infused Imagination into Our Weekly Routine

A few Sundays ago, Malcolm and I were sitting side-by-side on the couch, him with his loop pad, me with my typewriter, creating. I swear sometimes when we are both creating, there’s electricity in the air. I come up with my best ideas sitting next to Colm while he’s making music.

As I reflected on this, I had another brilliant idea: Create Sunday! For the past few Sundays, Malcom and I have invented songs, short stories, lyrics, and poetry. Sometimes we create together, most of the time separately. The birth of my most recent writing sojourn into sonnets is a direct result of creative Sunday. Would I have ever written a damn sonnet if not for creative Sunday? Nope. Probably not. But by having a routine, my brain is primed and ready by the time Sunday coffee rolls around.

How do you infuse creative time into your week? If you don’t already, where would you like to start?


I'd love to hear from you!
