Getting over creative block

Right before writing this post, I didn’t know what I’d be writing about.

I didn’t think anything I had to say was worth saying.

I didn’t believe there was any value in my ideas.

It was easier to close my laptop and walk away from it all.

So I decided to write about it.

Here’s how I get over creative block.

  1. Take a deep breath
  2. Write about the thing that’s on your mind, even if it doesn’t make sense
  3. Don’t edit, don’t walk away, don’t lose your focus from the task at hand until it’s done
  4. Do it all over again tomorrow

For me, creative block stems from a lack of confidence in my own ideas. 

The only way to get over that is to write more and build up my confidence by being comfortable hearing feedback about it.
