Another Creative Blockbuster to Try

When you’re stuck creatively, almost any forward progress is positive, no matter how small. It’s even better when your progress can be turned into something tangible, i.e. an artifact.

An artifact can take any of a variety of forms including a word, a sentence, an image, an outline, a chart or graph, a good article you’ve found, etc. Anything that provides you with a jumping off point for further opportunity is ideal.

The next time you hit a creative block, simply lower your expectations, find a small something that’s more achievable than the whole project (maybe even something already sitting in the creative trash heap), create it, and use it as your first step to get to the next step!
