Creative Refuel – Illuminated Text, Part 2

Coming off a two-day work-cation (some of us love our work so much there’s no such thing as taking a vacation from it) in Portland, OR where I checked out all the crazy goodness at Rose City Comic Con, I found myself reinvigorated.  Sitting amongst greats like Brian HaberlinAnina BennettTim Seeley and the mighty Rich Werner (Plants vs. Zombies!!) can do that to a girl.

It’s not enough to live and breathe what you do.  If you can get to a place where you love it you may find yourself fulfilled in ways you never dreamt possible.  Of course, I’m talking about work-life balance.  It’s where your passion and your day-to-day flow together instead of fighting with one another.

The most commonly asked question during the panels at the Con was “how do you find time to do your creator-owned stuff?”  The answer?

Pay yourself first.

That means, before you head into work, before you do your household chores, before you put your creative juju into anything else – give yourself the freedom to do something *you* want to do, creatively.  It can be 15 minutes.  It can be 2 hours.  Just set aside the time and make it happen.
