Battling Creative Blocks

FOLLOW THESE TEN EASY STEPS.
Debbie Millman, writer and artist


1. Get enough sleep! Sleep is the best (and easiest) creative aphrodisiac.

2. Read as much as you can, particularly classics. If a master of words can’t inspire you, see number 3.

3. Color code your library. This is fun, and you will realize how many great books you have that you haven’t read yet.

4. More sleep! You can never get enough.

5. Force yourself to procrastinate. Works every time!

6. Look at the work of Tibor Kalman, Marian Bantjes, Jessica Hische, Christoph Niemann, and Paul Sahre.

7. Weep. And then weep some more.

8. Surf the Web. Write inane tweets. Check out your high school friends on Facebook. Feel smug.

9. Watch Law & Order: SVU marathons. Revel in the ferocious beauty of Olivia Benson.

10. Remember how L-U-C-K-Y you are to be a creative person to begin with and quit your bellyaching. Get to work now!

Dear Photograph,
My son is off to University in 2 weeks, and looking back at him and his toothless 6 year old grin, I find myself wondering where have all the years gone. I know time doesn’t stand still but if it could, I would wish for you to always remember this moment, that “feeling” you had, right then and there.  Carry it with you always.  Be invincible, be happy and be your best self. You are so worth it and more. Love, Mom

Beautiful
