Lately I have been in a huge creative funk. I don’t want to create and it’s making me and the people around me miserable. So I decided to do a deep dive using my detective skills to figure out what’s going on and how to fix the problem. I am sharing 20+ things for you to do when you feel your creative mojo sprinting out the door. I’m not talking the ‘just take a nap’ kind of tips, I’m talking how to do some soul searching and how to maintain your relationship with creativity long term. Plus, YOU shared your ideas! I asked for ideas on instagram and so many of you responded. So it’s me plus about 20 of my closest instagram artists today sharing how to claw your way back to creative peace and joy!
