Whether you're a full-time creative professional, a passionate pastime artist, or simply a dabbler, it's gonna happen. The creative block - that blank page, empty canvas, one-line melody, uncut yard of fabric, that time where all you wanna do (or have to) is create something, and you just can't get started...or worse, finished.
But not all creative blocks are equal. They could come from a lack of ideas, but also from your own health or emotional wellness, work habits, or even communication. So, in order to become more productive, you first gotta understand what sort of block you have. Which, to me, recalls this classic interchange from Empire Records:
Mark: Hey, Lucas. I've decided I'm going to start a band.
