Your Lying Eyes Are Killing Me Slowly

Lying Eyes are eyes that are blank and hollow.

The compulsive liar is not in the habit of making eye contact, and if they do, they shift, they avoid, they can’t stand still for they have no dignity or truth behind them.

Statistics tell us that “someone is lying” to us nearly everyday, either directly or through “lying by omission”. Vote in our lying poll below and remember to “be honest.”

 

 

Contrary to popular belief, the artist role in this life is to not lie, but to go into the dark dishonest places and shine their very bright light. It is a journey that carries a burden, and many an artist falls prey to the lying eyes of another and settles for a life that compounds and builds upon a “Utopian lie” rather than dispelling it. (Please comment below if you disagree)

Little white lies are dangerous things, for they trick us and deceive us into believing that we are better and that the world is safer than it really is.

The Best Moments in Life

“The best moments in life” are usually unexpected slices of heaven, things that we just didn’t see coming! Trying to create these moments ourselves is like planning your own funeral. You’re never going to experience them.

The best weddings I’ve ever been too, have been the ones where the bride and groom are completely broke, totally in love and 100% spontaneous, they simply didn’t have enough money to make elaborate plans

It’s the actor or the artist, bold enough to trust their impulses and “create in the moment” that wins our hearts with their surprising authenticity.

There is no outline, no character profile, no music already written and prepared for us, only the space and the time right in front of you…

3 Crucial Warning Signs That Show FEAR Is Killing Your Creativity

Nothing will kill the creativity inside you or within your organization like “fear.” It is a disgusting, insidious thing, that wars against our creative freedom.

Here are 3 symptoms that indicate that fear is running riot through your creative process and interfering with creative collaboration

1. Questions are not welcome, fear controls, it does not innovate.
2. People in positions of authority won’t look other creative souls in the eye.
3. There is an absence of laughter and you are nervous when you enter the creative space.

Nothing kills creative synergy like an ego driven, fear mongering leader; the creativity of one is never greater than the creative energy of many souls working together.

2011 Seven Sentences – Creative Synergy

We’re Back!

After a three month hiatus, the seven sentence crew is now officially back in business. Life got ridiculously busy and I (Geoff Talbot) got called away from blogging as I built up the social media profile of “FilmFunds,” a start-up internet/film company.

And what a successful time it was…

With our unique strategies, we built up a twitter following from 14 Followers to 120,000 in just over 3 months, and grew their facebook page from 28 Fans to just under 124,000 over the same time period. Statistics that any social media team would be proud of!

What did we learn? In a nutshell, every social media channel (facebook page, blog, twitter account etc), needs to stand on it’s own as a fun, interactive, targeted place to be!

P:S: If you want more info on how we achieved such great results then contact us.

Let Love In

When I hear people talk about being creative, it often feels like an exclusive affair: the creative person and his/her creative thoughts allowed only!  The truth is, the process for a creative to create is quite… well solitary.

One thing that we must never forget to do as creatives is to allow love in.  As we journey into the deepest places of creativity that reside in our heads, hearts, memories, imaginations and even pockets — we must let love flow.

Love from and for others seems to be the single greatest influence of novelty. Think of a time when you felt most loved and how it caused an eruption of creativity, risk, confidence and ingenuity.

Find your source of love today and allow your creativity to be shaped,  honed and set free.

My Seven Sentence Love Letter

Seven Sentences I miss you dearly. I shall endeavor to write more soon. To my readers I apologize, life has been so busy.

I have a job that is taking up a lot of time, with a long commute each day which steals my writing time. But I am back because I believe in the verbosity of these seven sentences.

Life comes in seasons, sometimes we are busy, sometimes we are not. How do you juggle creativity and life commitments?

The Importance Of Failing — Monday to Friday

A lead singer in a major band was once asked by a fan, “how did you get so good?” He replied,  “by singing a lot of awful notes.”

To be good at what we do we have to persist, we have to trudge through a cesspool of missed notes, bad stories and incoherent paintings. Artistry is after all a craft; and craft by its very nature is learnt.

How can we expect to perfect a craft if we do not allow room for error, failure, mess ups and mistakes? It seems almost cruel to expect such a thing from the evolving artist?

Creativity is like the wind, it can come in a violent gust or blow softly across the pages of time; just put up your sail and see where it takes you.
