Dealing with creative block? Here are 4 steps to keep it going… | VentAllOut blog

“Creativity is soul-nourishing.”

That’s the only reason why artists, writers, singers, musicians, painters, designers and other creative “-ers” choose against conventional jobs. But is this the complete story? As a creative person, you are bound to feel empty. There are going to be times when you don’t feel inspired to practice your art. All you need is a place to vent and release the blocked energies so you can get back to your usual self.

But is it possible to make the process easier and faster? Here’s what the industry experts’ think you must do:

1. Know when to speak

Most of the time, when you’re excited or overwhelmed with an idea, you want to talk about it. That’s the biggest ‘No-No’! You must never speak of an idea until you’ve made some significant progress and it can’t be kept under the rugs.

The reason being, when you talk about your art, you imagine it happening. The more you talk about it, the more you feel closer to its end. Sooner, you’ll realise that the words said have now burdened you as there’s no way out. You feel tragically suppressed to complete it rather than enjoying the work.

Stay mum until necessary to speak!

2. Routine is important

Creative tasks are as redundant as any other 9-to-5 job. Yes, this is the truth. Don’t try to fight it because you need the patience, time, efforts, consistency and all those A-listed corporate ethics to give 100% of you to a job.

However, the difference is that you don’t have to feel out of the place. Enjoy a routine based on your creative juices. The fact is you have to commit to a timeline and that’s it. For the times when you feel low, vent online or to your friends.

3. Take a break

It’s false to feel guilty about not being able to produce the required or desired work sometimes. Creativity is like a fuel which absolutely needs to be refuelled. The biggest troublemaker is professional demands. Let your clients know about a much-required break or delegate the tasks to your subordinates when you feel less inspired.

It depends on you for how long it takes to recharge your mind and body. Some people enjoy a 2-day vacation and some need 2 months to actually come back to life. Don’t pressure yourself to keep going when clearly your mind, body and soul need you to simply take a break.

4. Follow a Venting Cycle

Having a functional and tiring day might drain your energies to speak with people or invest time in meaningful conversations at the end of the day. But this could lead to bottling up the feelings.
