CREATIVE BLOCK

“It’s often this feeling that everything has to be ‘perfect’ that can stop us getting started in the first place. Perfect will never come and people that don’t get started till the conditions are perfect, often never get started at all.”

 

Sometimes I’m brimming over with ideas and don’t know how I can possibly find enough time in my life to execute them. Then othertimes I get out of the flow and I can’t even get myself sat down with a pencil or pick up my camera creatively for months on end. I feel  that’s normal in the life of an artist/creative, we have to go wifh the flow, but I often find just starting something, anything, just sitting down and drawing, writing notes or painting even if it’s nothing inspired can lead on to the inspired stuff.

Sometimes getting started even if it’s not going to be perfect or something you  know you are going to be proud of is the best thing you can do. It’s often this feeling that everything has to be ‘perfect’ that can stop us getting started in the first place. Nothing is ever perfect as perfect never comes and people that don’t get started till the conditions are perfect, often never get started at all. Waiting for things to be different leaves us perpetually living in a future where everything would be great but never comes.
