I haven’t posted in a while. There’s lots of distractions, at present. Fortunately, this doesn’t mean that nothing creative is going on. It’s just that I haven’t had the motivation to write about it and tell you. The distractions can also be time and energy consuming.
I hope that this is one of those phases where something astonishing is brewing in my head, but you can never tell. Sometimes you come out the other side of these lulls with nothing much to show for the agony. At other times, something good starts. I hope it will be one off those times.
None of us is a perpetual creativity machine. It doesn’t work that way. Sometimes we get into states that we struggle to shift or work through. Sometimes, the last thing on your mind is song writing, blog posting or painting. Even showing up at your creative place, where you do your creative work, can seem difficult and unappealing. When you’re in a creative recession, the hardest thing is to not think about the creative dip you find yourself in. But we have a choice. You can either conclude that you’ve dried up and are no good at this creativity lark after all, or you can believe that your subconscious is working on something big and significant, which will be revealed to your conscious mind in good time. That’s a nicer thought to hold onto.
So, apologies for the late posting of what is admittedly not very much. Whatever is brewing in the dark, dim, inaccessible, recesses of my imagination hasn’t revealed itself to me, yet.
Meanwhile, I hope you are continuing to be productive and artistic. See you out the other side.
