Do you ever have writers block or any creative block?
Here are some ways to overcome creative blocks.
Try another creative endeavor for a few days, here are a few suggestions;
If you normally write articles, try writing an imaginative short story or poem. Start a local interest blog and share with your friends on social media.
Make a shadow box out of nature items or found objects. Upcycle a tin or use an old drawer or small cereal box.
If you’re a painter, try sculpting! If you love to draw, try knitting. If you enjoy sewing, get involved with your community and make some lap blankets for a local children’s hospital or nursing home.
Take photos of mundane items around your house or neighborhood. If you get a couple of good shots, share with friends or on social media. Try using old photos to make a collage as a gift for a coworker or your favorite barista.
Put on some of your favorite music and dance.
Turn up iTunes/Pandora/Spotify and sing!
Play an instrument. Most people have a few instruments in closets or cupboards, if you don’t have one, borrow one.
If you live in the city; take a long drive to the country to see new sights. If you live in the country; visit the library / art center / museum in a town nearby.
If you’re always busy doing too much, find quiet time for yourself. Read a favorite book from your childhood. Go out to see the moon every evening or the stars early in the morning.
If you love to bake, bake a little extra and deliver to neighbors or friends.
Host a ‘talent party’, have everyone bring finger foods to share. Make this a yearly event.
Give yourself time to breathe.
Be kind. Be creative.
