June 15, 2005 – Exercise for the right side of the brain   Leave a comment

Here’s what I suggest: Create a few broken poems and read them out loud. Put expression into them. Ham it up. Play. Have fun. Then, do another. Don’t try to make something of it or lead it somewhere or use it somehow. Just absorb the chaos.

This seems like right-brain exercise to me, because the poems, being randomly generated, don’t “make sense.” That is, they don’t make sense to the logical, linear, sequential left side of your brain.

Yet, I have a hunch that the right side loves the chaotic nature of these poems, feeds from that chaos and gets stronger.

Later in the day, when you are doing something else, you might have a creative flash. That’s the effect of feeding the right-side of your brain. If that happens, see what you can do with it.

Now, I should say that I am focusing on the right side, because I am left-dominant. If you are right-dominant, perhaps you can exercize your left side with some logic puzzles.

Whatever you do today, have fun with it.
