Creative constipation

I'm stuck.

Today is one of those days where my mind is a blank slate and, as hard as I try, I can't seem to get the gears turning.

Instead of sitting here feeling sorry for myself, I'm going to write through the block. After all, it's only writer's block if you let yourself remain blocked.

Come to think of it, a lot of problems are similar in that they are self-perpetuating. When we wallow in self-pity, we are only making the problem worse, adding to the preexisting clog.

Whenever I run into moments of creative constipation, I turn to what I know: writing.

For you, this might be talking with someone else or recording a video.

Regardless of the format, the main goal here is to share and explore your thoughts.

If you ask me, there's no better laxative than sharing your ideas with others.
