I call this form of creative expression “writing with pictures.” I’m still telling a story, but I’m not using any written words.
It’s a great way to express myself when I feel any emotion, but I tend to turn to this process more when I am sad. Since I write romance, it can be dangerous to do so from a sad or dark place. Instead of trying to work through it when I feel that way, I put writing on the back burner and look at the world through the lens of my camera.
The best thing I’ve learned through photography is, never be afraid to change your perspective.
What kind of creative outlets do you turn to when you’re feeling sad, lonely or confused? I’d love to hear about your process if you’d be so kind as to tell me about it by leaving me a comment below
