This week, well this week didn’t go according to plan creativity wise.
Life took an unexpected turn and creating things took a back seat. This is not a bad thing; life does happen, and this week was fun, so there are no complaints from me. This week has been a bit of an unplanned holiday for me, and I think I needed it.
Still, I didn’t get nothing done.
I have written a two and a half thousand word halloween story that has been submitted to an anthology. I don’t know if it’s been accepted yet, but if it does get rejected I’ll publish as part of a book of short stories.
Society6 have had a revamp of their website, so a lot of my free time was spent rejigging, repricing, and reorganising existing art work. Unfortunately now their graphics are glitching, so I have to wait for them to finish troubleshooting before I feel safe touching anything else.
A lot of people say you need to create something every day, write every day, draw every day, but it’s not a luxury that many people can adhere to, life just happens.
In fact it’s not really all that good for you to never take a break. Even if it’s something you love to do, if you need to take a break from it, do.
There’s nothing that can kill a passion for something quicker than forcing yourself to work on something when you’re not in the mood.
Yes, it feels good to break through writer’s block, and you’ll feel impatient to do it, but if you’re blocked, take a break, come back to it refreshed, and then try again.
