Out here in blogland it can seem like everything is sunshine and butterflies 100% of the time. Since there is a real person behind it all, this is definitely not the case. There are many days of feeling stressed, uninspired and lacking creativity. I call this a creative funk and my friends, I’m feelin’ it!
I’m not sure why it happens or what brings it on, but I know it happens to everyone. Some are worse than others. But it always passes!
Sometimes it just takes creating a lot more bad stuff than normal before I get to the good stuff. Sometimes it takes stepping away from the project for a little while and working on something else. And sometimes, it takes a sweet friend reminding me that God has me right where He wants me, and for a very specific purpose. ( thanks, Ash )
What kind of practical things do you do to get back in the creative groove? Yesterday I actually did the things I usually put off when I feel overwhelmed with a long to-do list and lack of creativity: clean my house and read The Word. Yeah, those should be on the top of my list. I know, you’d think I would’ve figured that out by now, right? Okay your turn! Tell me your tricks :)
