I’d like to think I’m a fairly creative person. And that when I sit down, words just flow like beer on a Friday night at the Sarah Lawrence unwind parties I always hear about but assume are myth because they’re never seen.
Erm, but that seems to not always be the case.
Especially when I sat down to write a poem that was due this week.
All I could think of was where I could get a copy of Beauty and the Beast because the songs were stuck in my head. (I would say maybe that’s why I’m not invited to these mythological parties, but SLC has a cult-like obsession with Disney movies. The more I am at this school, the more normal I feel.)
I was just about to hit a wall when I ran across this:
Sylvia Plath once said (before she offed herself, obviously):
“Your worst enemy is self-doubt.”
What do you do to stay creative? Any of the things on this list? What would you add?
