Sometimes I suck and that’s ok, not so much at the moment…
What’s a good creative solution for when your mind is in a rut? I don’t know. I’ve found myself in this place over and over. I’m sure you’ve taken notice. Ideas come and go but nothing comes to fruition. I find myself in a daze wandering through life aimlessly. Attainable goals but unattainable ambition. Where is my drive? I take a stroll on a sunny but windy day to clear my head. Nothing. I flip through magazines, scour the internet reading blog post after blog post. Some of my daily reads and some of those advice posts on what to do when you have a creative block or need topics for a post. Nothing still. I sift through old sketches to see past glories and remind myself of what I can do and where I can go. It’s not enough. I go through these highs and lows so often that maybe this is just my norm. On a roll and then I slow down and come to a halt. Sometimes a halt is good because going through life on high-speed will wear you out. Everyone needs time for themselves, time to cherish life. However I find I halt a little too often. I don’t want this to be my norm anymore but I haven’t figured out yet how to change that. Slow and steady wins the race? A race I don’t know how long I’m in, so shouldn’t I be sprinting ahead?
This is all I have to share with you today, that and a few quick sketches I managed in my angst:
Tomorrow I’ll try again.
