The Textile Artist blog regularly offers excellent posts. I recently discovered this post on Breaking through Blocks: Ten Ways to Reclaim Your Practice written by Louise Etheridge. Here are just a few of the points that caught my interest:
"Routines Set You Free. Some creative souls shudder at the thought of a routine, but routines are essentially the route to freedom and to an energized mind....Routines help us by creating habits that don’t need a decision.....And routines are not only fruitful when applied to the day-to-day. Creative routines are a sure-fire way to get your artistic juices flowing. Finding a creative routine will help your brain know that it’s time to start creating."
"Get Some Clarity. Perhaps you have too many choices, too many unfinished pieces, too many ideas. Or perhaps no ideas at all...Gain clarity about what you want to do, what you need to do, to show, to make. Gaining clarity will lead you naturally to your first step....One effective method of gaining clarity is to journal."
"Your Most Important Thing (MIT). The latter is the thing that will help you on the way to where you want to be, artistically. Your MIT could be about producing a work, or exploring a new method, or gaining inspiration from other artists."
