Creative Slumps

We’ve all been there. Sometimes the ideas just flow and you have so many variations you rush to jot them down. One idea leads to the next and there are not enough hours in the day to begin, let alone complete the things you want to start.

On the reverse side of this are the days you can’t even get yourself up to make spacer beads or earring wires. What’s up with that? If I knew I’d help you out but I don’t even understand it myself. It passes – thank the universe.

Today I ran across one of the blogs from the “Ranked Blogs” list called Art Biz Blog.
On it, Alyson B. Stanfield has a pretty interesting perspective on how to beat the slump. She has 10 very practical ways to emerge from your slump faster. I’ve printed them out for myself. They are going to come in very handy for those days when I am sitting with coffee in my hand, a grimace on face, and I can feel the ball bearings of my brain rolling around off-track in my skull. I’m going to keep that list handy – pick out a solution and “work it baby”.

It can be a real problem when those brain ball bearings come out your ears and you step on them. :-)
