So, I’m stuck right now. Every time I sit down to do something creative I either mess it up or lose the will. It’s like I’ve lost the ability to draw, even things that I’ve been drawing for years, even the simplest doodle. If I try to paint, it’s forced. If I try to write, it’s flat and stagnant. Even this post is like moulding treacle. And it’s been like this for a month now.
I’ve read a lot of stuff about this in the past. How it’s a natural part of creativity, how the brain needs to rest, recharge, reboot, and how you need to just wait and normal service will be resumed.
But what if it doesn’t?
That’s a terrifying thought.
