According to the National Day Calendar nationaldaycalendar.com, today is National Creativity Day. Maybe. From what I was able to find out, today is actually supposed to be the FIRST National Creativity Day, which was founded by Hal Croasmun and ScreenwritingU to “celebrate the imaginative spirits everywhere and to encourage them to keep creating.” Unfortunately, when you click on the link for National Creativity Day, instead of bringing you to a website, it brings you to GoDaddy.

But hey, let’s celebrate anyway by doing something creative today! As Joss Whedon has said, “Write it. Shoot it. Publish it. Crochet it, Sauté it, whatever. Make.” So pick up a pen, a camera, a guitar, a crochet hook, a paintbrush, a frying pan—whatever—or let your fingers fly freely over a keyboard, either the QWERTY kind or the kind with 88 keys. Let your muse run wild for the day. It's good for body and soul.

Life is short. Spend it creating—today and every day. Both you and the world will be better for it.
