You know that feeling when you have elevator music playing on a loop inside your head 24×7 for no reason?
That’s exactly what a creative block feels like, sometimes. I have tried so hard to shut that sound out, so many times, and it just gets louder for some reason, and I cannot tell why!
I know that there has been a glaring lack of content from my side, lately, and I promise you that I am trying my best to snap out of this slump. But the problem is that I have way too many ideas and my brain has stopped processing creativity for a little while. I guess I needed the break because I have, indeed, been going at this for way too long.
And maybe a break will be good for me because I have been exposing myself to a lot of content lately and I think that it will be helpful when it comes to my writing skills. I definitely see a change in my approach to poetry; it’s very different than what it once used to be. I like this change. It’s very addicting. I see what creatives mean when they’re addicted to an art-style. The more you explore something, the more you want to keep exploring. I think that’s amazing!
I think that we spend a lot of time trying to copy everybody else’s style of art and that’s somehow just holding us back because we don’t get to see what we’re actually good at, that way. In a way, I think that we should all be exposing ourselves to more content out there (no pressure or anything!) because it is a great way to gain new perspectives on things and, somewhere deep down, we hold on to a little bit of that, too!
We need to allow ourselves to be an amoeba for information and content. We need to let ourselves grow and evolve because that is the whole point. And every once in a while, we need to too sit back and just let our heads play the same damn elevator music on repeat because thinking too much can and will ruin things.
