For the last few weeks, I’ve been talking about the ebb and flow of creativity and how you have to just go with the flow. I’ve also shared with you my personal 4 step process for getting back into the flow and avoiding long term artist’s block. So today, I’d like to talk about what you can do during your UP time in order to make the most of it.

Keep a journal or a running list of ideas you have, inspiration, projects and techniques you want to try. That way when you’re ready to create, and not sure what to do, you can always pick something off your list to try.
Fill Your Well
Always be on the lookout for inspiration, you don’t want your inner “well” to become dry, stagnant, or blocked!
The more you create, the easier it becomes. Making it a habit to create daily will not only help you to stay in the flow, but it will help you perfect your craft that much faster.
Bridge the Gap
On longer projects, where you know you’ll have to come back to it at a later time, stop when you know what you’re going to do next. That way, when its time to come back to the project, you already know what you need to do to start, and you can easily get back into the flow of creating.
