for me with writing and performing music, I’ve learned to go with the flow so to speak. If I’m not feeling ceative and ideas aren’t readily flowing don’t push it. Wait until they do. For me anything can spark a creativity binge that can last from 10 minutes to 10 months..or more.
I know. Not very organized or scientific. And not an approach that could be usedd if I were trying to put dinner on the table as a result. However, if I push or “try” to be creative and it’s not flowing I end up with something I’m eventually unhappy with.
