Long before I started the Creative Introvert I had come across the term creative block. It was probably at art college I first had a taste of it.

The solution? Didn’t seem to exist. It wasn’t the kind of question I even considered asking my lecturers about.

Over the years I’ve got to know creative block even more intimately, and whilst I’m sure we’ll be meeting for many years to come, creative block does seem to linger less than it used to, and for the most part keep away.

That’s because I’ve worked damn hard at experimenting with different solutions for how to cure creative block and that’s what I hope to share with you today, in the hope that at least one tip here will come in handy, should you have an encounter with creative block.
