Hi everyone! It’s been a while since I last posted to this blog, so I thought I’d give some updates and reflect on the last few months.
Uh-oh! I got writer’s block!
I should have seen writer’s block coming when I graduated from my Arts degree last year. But I thought I could bypass it since I was able to publish my large Lin-Manuel Miranda post shortly after my graduation. But, nevertheless, the writer’s block caught up with me the moment I posted it!
Writer’s block, like any other kind of art block, is a tricky beast for creatives to overcome. Many websites define ‘art block’ as a period in which an artist struggles to create due to a lack of motivation or ideas.
I’m not sure if other creatives feel the same way, but writer’s block and art block feel very similar to periods of procrastination or ‘laziness’ for me.
There are lots of articles and videos by other creatives that provide excellent advice for overcoming artistic and writer’s block. But I thought I’d contribute to the conversation by sharing what worked best for me.
