“No honestly, because I’m over it”
You know what the hardest thing about being a writer, artist, musician, designer or any type of creative is? Writers/ creative block! Whew, it can be so frustrating and discouraging to experience this. It’s literally your mind blanking every time you have to sit and come up with an idea for a song, painting, post, or whatever you’re doing. You can be sitting there for hours, days, weeks trying to come up with something. Or you have this great idea, attempt to execute it, find out it sucks and now you’re back to square one. Then this continues for the next 20 or so ideas. Like why? Someone please tell me why? No honestly, because I’m over it!
So how do we combat this? Well.. (scroll down)
I.Don’t Know. No seriously I don’t lol. Sometimes I’ll take a walk, call my mom, cry, read, cry, call my mom (yup I put those two twice. They’re my go to). It really all depends on how I’m feeling. Usually if I’m just anxious and overwhelmed, I’ll go check out other bloggers pages to get some inspiration or read some of my favorite books. But seriously you guys the struggle is real. Though I know that I’ll ALWAYS overcome it sooner or later with patience and a prayer, it’s still frustrating and overwhelming.
If any of you experience writers/creative block often, trust me you’re not alone. If you’re someone who has overcome it before, what did you do? How long did it take for you to finally have your breakthrough? What was the end result? Step by step please, I’m big on details haha. But yes please share your victories. Not only do I love to read about them but it’s also really motivating to see what others where able to accomplish after knowing how they struggled. Even if you’re not a creative, talk about how you were stuck on a project at work or an assignment at school and what you did to complete it.
Anyhooo, thank you for taking the time to listen to me vent, well read about it lol. You guys are truly appreciated.
