How you can deal with creative block
These professionals are also able to help you deal with creative block. Here are a few tips on how to effectively get through the creative blockage that might be hampering your productivity.
- Introspection: If you’re suffering from a creative block then you can just have a look at your past work and celebrate past victories. Tell yourself that this block is just temporary and you are still moving in the right direction in your career. And who knows, you may find some inspiration!
- Broaden your horizons: If you’re finding it difficult to come up with new ideas or illustrations, go back to the drawing board and learn new concepts – whether its silk screen printing, web design or anything else that interests you.
- Don’t force creativity: When facing a creative block, just relax and do not take on any new work. Also avoid doing personal work until you feel better. However, this may not always work when you have looming deadlines!
- Let others inspire you: Visit forums and blogs to see what other professionals are doing and help them if they need any advice. Having a brainstorming session with friends can help too!
- De-clutter your life: Most times, our blogs, websites, hard drives and portfolios are in a mess. When faced with a creative block, take time out to clear and reorganize your creative life.
