There are days as an artist when you experience the feelings and promptings of creating but cannot express what it is you feel.
You remain stagnant and on hold. It feels like a hurricane hovering over one spot.
It feels like creators block.
It's the waters of creativity being stirred and processed. The process makes the art more seasoned and real.
But artists are impatient.
Then there are days of creative flow and you cannot express it fast enough before your mind is shifting to the next thing.
Creative flow is not subject to a schedule or a calendar, in fact it is often in the midst of other activity.
Unfortunately, too often, other activity is seemingly more important and takes priority over creative impulse.
Responsibilities and relationships are usually the things that interrupt creative flow or are interrupted by it.
When creativity is put on the back burner, however, it often looses steam and power. It feels stuffed in a place to small to contain it.
Where does that leave the artist?
Feeling stuck and unproductive, like a ball of bursting ideas.
I am everywhere and nowhere at the same time.
Perhaps that is why many artists seem scattered and distracted, flaky and emotional.
How does one harness creativity and direct it in a way that benefits the world as well as the artist?
