Many people are called on to produce creative work; some of them live in the Houston area. Creative block may occur to anyone trying to finish a script, a song, a speech, a scientific paper, or a painting. Sometimes it is hard to get an idea, organize the project, or imagine that the audience will receive it well. You may think about it too much, or not at all.
One thing that may help is staying on schedule. A routine helps remind you what needs to be done at that particular time of day. Another, for some, is just letting your mind float and to think about nothing at all. It may trigger that creative side of your brain. Another stimulus might be to visit a new location or an old friend. This can refresh the mind and the spirit.
However, if the simple tricks do not work, perhaps the inhibition, or lack of flow, may be rooted in the Unconscious. Why not seek professional help? Dr. Penelope J.
