150 Ways to Call Yourself Creative

What we call ourselves is important. I am a writer – took me years to feel comfortable with that title. As part of my creativity series, here are 101 role titles you might use to describe yourself to others. Perhaps one or two (hopefully more) will start you thinking about how creative you already are. These are in no particular order so read them all!

In upcoming series posts, we’ll explore how you are creative and how you can become more creative in your self-defined title.

I started writing this post intending to give you 101 creative titles but quickly I exceeded that and I could have gone on to 200 or more! As I brainstormed and expanded my definition of creating, I found so many opportunities to channel yourself creatively into work and life. I hope this list helps you think about how you can become a more creative person.
