I thought you’d enjoy this this delightful list by Debbie Millman about overcoming creative block. We’re all creative in one way or another and it’s super easy these days to get distracted and put our creativity last on our to-do list.
Imagine how your life would change if you excelled at overcoming your creative block and started working on that book again, or that poem, or the song you were writing or the birdhouse you were going to build. (Fill in your special creative talent here!)
Do you have a favorite on this list?
I’m focusing on #10 right now. I’m feeling very lucky to be a creative person and a writer of novels. Like everybody, I fight my innate laziness and all the distractions of our modern world that threaten to derail my creativity and writing the books that I feel are mine to write. Every day that I “get to work,” I feel grateful to be a creative person, and I’m thankful that I made the effort.
Are you ready to get back to your creative work?
P.S. Big News coming soon. xo
