This week's Spring into Action prompt is Have you ever been surprised by your creativity?
In my case, I'd have to say that while I've never been surprised that I'm a creative person (it would be much more surprising to find I was athletic or the life of the party), I have definitely almost always been surprised by the things I've created. To me the creative process is almost like giving birth to something which has a life of its own. I'm one of those people who definitely believes she has a muse:) Almost every project I've worked on has surprised me in its finished state. I tend to work really instinctively and have very little mental image of what a project will end up looking like. The same goes for creativity in my "mundane" life, where I call on openness and play to help find solutions I might otherwise have been blind to. I love that surprise!
