Creative blocks are among the most frustrating obstacles encountered by creative people.
Our creativity is so tied up with our sense of fulfilment and identity that we are just not ourselves when we are unable to create.
And if we rely on our creative work to pay the bills, this only adds to the frustration – and the pressure to find a solution.
This is why, over on my Lateral Action blog, I invited my readers to tell me about their creative blocks – and I wrote a series of articles offering solutions to help them. Marelisa Fábrega helped me out by writing an article which is included in the ebook.
I’ve now collected the entire series into an ebook: 20 Creative Blocks (and How to Break Through Them) which you can download for free here.
Creative blocks covered in the ebook include:
- creativity v cash
- lack of time
- fear of getting it wrong
- information overload
- sex, drugs and rock’n'roll
