I was just reading an interview with a band I like (Titus Andronicus) where the singer was talking about drawing and playing guitar or otherwise being creative.
I play guitar or mandolin every day, and make a very strict point of doing so. Lately I've also been drawing more, and I occasionally write. I attempt to create original works when doing these things (in oppose to playing a song someone else wrote or whatever) and otherwise do wacky experiments.
I wonder what the benefits are psychologically of doing creative things every day. How would my life be different if I was to cease these activities? How would someone who does not do anything creative's life change if they were to start doing creative things on a daily basis?
What kinds of creative things do you do?
