How does it feel to be stuck?
You know that you are creative and capable and can achieve and make beautiful things, but you have lost your mojo. It seems like you’ve created the same piece before, or that someone else has. Your creativity has become re-creativity. Along the way you have lost your flow – this can be because we have received negative voices around our work or were once told that being creative was time wasting, or we were told that we weren’t good enough. Sometimes we are so exhausted by life and responsibilities we can’t find a way back to ourselves. Our own time ends up at the bottom of a never-ending to-do list.
That is how it feels when I have times of creative block.
We can often feel like this at the end of the winter and may be even more prone after this past year of fear and added responsibilities. There have been times in the past year I have found my flow and felt creative, and other times when although I have had a project on the go, I haven’t been able to proceed. Getting back into a flow state can be tricky!
