Creative dates

I first came across this term listening to the often hilarious ‘So you want to be a writer ?’ podcast and was totally intrigued by the concept of going on solo dates in order to refuel and expose myself to different types of creativity.

In true me form, I first heard the term two years ago, and it has only taken me until this month, to start to implement it. 

Sometimes life gets in the way.

This month, I managed to go on three creative dates, the first two solo, the third with a plus one (who may not have appreciated it as much as I did).

Were the solo dates awkward? Hell no. Although that may be the introvert in me coming out.

 As part of my journey to embrace all creativity and experiences, I went and saw a documentary about spiders, spider sex and Neil Gaiman (not necessarily in that order), a tour of a destitute asylum in Adelaide and a murder and mayhem tour of Adelaide.

For such a quiet city, known affectionately as the city of churches, it has some interesting figures and murders. The latter two dates may have been fuelled by my true crime obsession. Mmmm.

Next up I have a tour of cemetery, a live podcast and a theatre production.

At the very least I wont be bored. 

Do you go on creative dates? Or do you have different ways of being inspired?
