So, this blog comes from the heart. It's something that we can all relate to in some way. Creativity is such a POWERFUL tool to provoke thought to stimulate conversation, entertain, evoke social change, etc. The sky is the limit when it comes to creativity.
I think it's pretty fair to say that many creatives experience what may feel like is a dry spell- the feeling that your creativity is locked up and your productivity and fruitfulness is minimal. This can be for many reasons. I think one of the most common reasons is the inner-voice or the "inner-me" that can often be our biggest enemy. You know, the little voice that discourages you from pursuing that awesome idea for whatever reasons. The negative voice that tries to gripe you with fear. The self-destructing, critical voice that tells you YOUR IDEAS ARE NEVER GOOD ENOUGH!
Guess what, YOU ARE NOT ALONE! Lots of us are dealing with very similar struggles. So, how do you beat it? DO IT ANY WAY! Got an idea that seems crazy or impossible? GO FOR IT! Afraid of persecution? DO IT ANY WAY! Don't think it'll work? MAKE IT WORK! Don't feel like anyone will pay attention to your work and hear your voice? MAKE SUCH A BANG THAT NO ONE WILL BE ABLE TO IGNORE!
You gotta just do it, you know? You've got it in you. It's inborn. It's apart of who you are and no one can take it away, not even you! So silence whatever negative voice that has had your creativity locked up and unleash! Go crazy (in a good way!) and make something the world will never forget.
Peace & Love.
