A Cure for Creative Blocks

The cure for a creative block for me is:

     1. Leaving the house

• This creates opportunities for new experiences that will influence the work in unexpected ways

 

  2. Exploring a new place/more closely observing a familiar place

• Experiencing something new opens up space for new ideas and noticing something new in a familiar place strengthens observation skills that will develop a refined eye for things such as, seeing how light falls on a tree or how grass is made up of infinitely different greens.

   3. Physical labor that benefits someone other than myself

• This tires the body and slows down a spinning wheel of thoughts and worries by putting them into perspective and in relation to the bigger picture of life and others’ lives.
