This is probably one of the most important things you can do for your creativity.
Nobody, not one single other person, can give you permission to be creative. The only person with that power is you.
Here is a sample permission slip you might want to use.
I, _____________, do hereby give myself permission to be creative and to explore my creativity regardless of what form it takes.
Keep it at the front of your notebook or tape it to your bathroom mirror or your refrigerator.
Show me your permission slip. Share your picture on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter with the #morecreativitychallenge hashtag.
