Blockbuster 1

Some days, no matter how hard you try, you just can’t seem to get the creativity flowing. Been through the whole list of blockbreakers; switching from the computer to pen and paper, sitting somewhere else, drawing instead of painting, taking a walk, doing the laundry, reorganizing the kitchen cabinets, listening to music… Nothing is working, and now you’re tired, and still uninspired.

Something fun to try: pretend you’re someone you idolize. Who in your field do you think is the greatest that ever lived? Are you a Hemingway fan? A Picasso admirer? Dorothy Parker devotee? You most likely already know many details about their personalities and lifestyles, but, if not, start reading. Now, be that person today. Dress the dress, walk the walk, talk the talk. Have some fun, and do the work.
