Melissa Dinwiddie is sharing a gift to the creative world. That, dear friends, is you. She has worked on and developed a series of ten rules for being creative in her own life. She’s sharing those rules with the rest of us, as her Keys to Creative Flow.
Not only are they ten great Keys, but she’s also put them into a lovely poster for you to enjoy, download and use. That’s it just below, but if you follow the link above, you’ll find out how she put the poster together. You’ll also find out how the Keys have helped Melissa become a creative producer and coach.

How to lose your muse in 10 days is a wonderful post by Scrivener and writing guru Gwen Hernandez. It’s simple, snappy and to the point.

Not technically a link, but it’s here anyway. Free online vector graphics program, Mondrian, is just that. Adobe may have the professional end of the market sown up with Illustrator, but this little online app is quite neat. You can create vector images and export them to png or svg format. If you sign up for an account the ability to save is available.
There are exciting things on the horizon for !maginality, so enjoy the links, stay creative and I’ll see you soon.
