That’s my word of advice for the day. Brought to you by Austin Kleon.
Which reminds me…
So I got a Twitter the other day (Go follow me! @clichecreative), and I think it was that same day that my roommate @Cizzlesb (yes, we actually call her by her Twitter name) told me about the Boring Tweeter (@b0ringtweets).
All he does is post boring things and boring statements. But I have never been so inspired in my life. Who knew I could be so entertained by the mundane? He is so boring that he is creative. I love it. It’s the simplest form of creativity.
Here are some of his tweets:
“I’m not one to boast but my next door neighbour’s work friend’s daughter’s old school friend’s cousin applied to be on Britain’s Got Talent.”
“I used to wear a watch until I got a mobile phone. Now if I need to know the time, I look at my phone.”
“I’ve just blinked.”
“Goodnight. I’ve just turned the light off.” (and then there’s a picture that’s just black.)
Be boring. Be inspired.
