Creative Slumps Suck

It’s not always easy, this writing thing. Even with all the writing prompts I collect (I am currently filling a second journal with them!), I still sometimes have no clue what I should write. It can take time to get those creative juices flowing.

On the one hand it can be a nice break for my brain. On the other hand, I feel completely out of sorts when I am not writing something – anything.

What do I do when I’m in a creative slump?

Well that depends on my mood. If I am also feeling unmotivated to do much of anything else, I do something lazy:

  • Veg on Netflix or some other Roku channel – movie or TV series marathon!
  • Read – magazines, a book, whatever is handy.
  • Listen to music while drinking copious amounts of tea.
  • Call my mom and chat away for an hour.
  • Meditate.

If I have a great amount of energy during these slumps, I do more active things that help me to clear my mind so creative thoughts can more easily enter my mind.

  • Walk – being in nature is a huge help!
  • Yoga!
  • Hang out with a daughter.
  • Hang out with the bestest.

No matter what I do, I always come away with ideas for new projects. It is great!
