Breaking Through the Block: Share Your Secrets!

Recommended Posts

Hi Gang


We’ve all been there—staring at a blank page, fumbling with a melody that just doesn’t click, or feeling like the well of inspiration has run dry. Writer’s block can be a real challenge, but it’s also a common part of the creative process.


I'm eager to hear how you tackle these moments. What strategies, tricks, or rituals do you use to overcome writer’s block or creative slumps? Do you take a break and step away from your work, or do you power through with different exercises or techniques?


Your experiences could be just what someone else needs to hear to get past their own creative hurdles. So let’s share and support each other in keeping the music flowing!


I use a range approaches, but I’ll only mention one to get the ball rolling, and then post back more once others are posting their experiences and ideas.


Basically, I do things aimed at ensuring that I am firing on all cylinders creatively. It doesn’t even mean something musical. It could be coming up with something to eat from the contents of my fridge, or drawing a picture from my imagination. As long as my creativity is flowing, it is a good start.


What about you?

I work entirely in the box, and my strategy when I'm not inspired to write music, is to do something technical or educational. I mean do something like learn some features of my DAW that I've never used, or deep learn a VST instrument that I've previously abandoned. Something like that. I often find that doing something that is technical sparks something creative because I'm not trying. The brain is the barrier, and distracting it with technical stuff tends to fix the creative side, even if just temporarily.
