Whether you are a blogger, a painter, a chef or a web designer, you are an artist. I believe everyone is an artist in one way or another; you just have to find your passion. Once you find it, you’ll be on a lifelong creative journey. But no matter how skilled you are at your craft, we all go through creative dry spells.
My passion is writing, but I haven’t experienced writer’s block or a lack of creativity for a few years. Then just last month I went through a little dry spell. No matter how hard I pushed, the ideas wouldn’t spill out of my brain like they usually do. After about two weeks, that feeling went away, and now thank goodness things are back to normal in my blogging world. You’ve probably experienced this too.
What I’ve found is that the best way to get out of a creative rut is to stopping trying to get out of it. Instead, just enjoy the present moment and whatever it brings you. As a blogger, it’s a little awkward to continue writing when you’re in one of these ruts, but it’s important to keep moving forward. Before you know it, your creative juices will begin flowing again.
This infographic is an oldie but a goodie. It’s called How to Break Out of a Creative Rut, and it was created by Copyblogger in 2012. The points in this infographic are just as relevant now as they were three years ago. Creativity never gets old, and it’s always nice to get some ideas for keeping our creative juices fresh and inspiring.
Let go of your fear of making mistakes and let your mind run wild. There’s no need to be a perfectionist when you’re creating. As long as you are progressing and seeing improvement, things are moving along just as they should be.
