If you still want to write about creativity, please do! It’s such an interesting topic. Just send me the link, and I’ll be happy to include it on the next Weightless post.

If you did write a post, and didn’t get a chance to email me, just include your link in the comments!

Again, thank you so much to everyone who participated and offered their thoughtful and insightful perspectives.

How do you define creativity? What do you do to bring out or connect to your creativity? Do you have a scheduled time for being creative or does creativity pervade all areas of your daily life? In general, do you think that creativity has any connection to your body image?
