Artist and creators of all sorts at some point in their career face a “creative drought”. Writer’s and musicians are more prone to this than any due to having to entirely concoct a story in our heads. It’s not that things aren’t still influencing us daily that we would love to transcribe into our own melody or plot, but that’s just it…..SO MUCH IS HAPPENING! Even when it seems life is simply droning on, when you look back years later it seems like only yesterday.
Recently I have been participating in meditation and channeling my own truth and honesty. As I stated in my blog entitled “True Happiness Isn’t For Everyone”, “Real happiness comes from acceptance. Accepting your mistakes even sometimes doing the unthinkable……dwelling on them!!” During my periods of writers block this is often times what I do. I reflect on my past lives and moments I felt extreme vibes and emotions. It is much easier to write literature in my opinion than to write music, yet and still writers have their own song. The ability to transcribe a time in your life by memory, detailed enough to engage someone else that is most times a perfect stranger is indeed an art. Even if the person knows you personally and enjoys your literature isn’t it amazing they want to know what you have to say.
