Creativity Is Joy in Action
Creativity happens when inspiration, hope, and intellect meet action and energy—and you know you’re really working your creative muscles when work feels like joy and you lose track of time like we all did as kids.
Here, and on my YouTube Channel, I share content about personal development for creative minds in the hopes of helping you live a more bold, creative life, and to develop habits that will support the projects that mean the most to you.
Tiny habits and tiny joys can change our lives.
Joy is integral to living authentically and becoming who we are and who we want to be.
Looking for joy can get you through the hardest days.
The greatest joy is in living a creative life, and in creating things that haven’t existed before.

Welcome! My name is Hannah McSorley.
I am primarily a writer, but my creative hobbies extend from making videos to bullet journaling. My creative projects have always been important to me, but it wasn’t until I graduated from college, and abandoned many of them, that I realized how important they actually were.
Creativity is joy in action. There’s nothing more satisfying than watching as something that started as an idea in your head becomes real and tangible.
Creativity and joy are natural to us as kids—as are things like curiosity, play, exploration, resilience, learning, and expressing ourselves—and I think we can all get those traits back by turning them into practices that are supported by specific habits.
I hope by sharing content about personal development and creativity I can help you live a more creative, intentional life, and we can all get closer to being the best versions of ourselves by reclaiming traits we have forgotten along the way.
