Forced Creativity

Is that an oxymoronic phrase? I actually don't think so. I do know that in life we practice in a disciplined way, study in a disciplined way, and show up and perform once the date is booked. For many of us though, songwriting or producing waits for the inspired moments. I thought last month was tough trying to get "I Want To Tell You" released. This month has proven harder. Song is finished, has been for a while, but the producing is a grind. Making some break-throughs, and it will ship this month, but I am have to pull the creative out of me.

I think this process is true for all of us. We don't have to be a musical artist, or even in the arts to need something creative to come out of us. The challenge is to force ourselves into a space where we are actually, actively trying to break through the barrier in our way rather than waiting for the inspiration to hit.
