Thinking about a task is sometimes worse than completing the task.
When we’re stretching as artists, and tackling a creative project that is more complicated/harder/different than anything we’ve done before, it can feel physically uncomfortable. The mere idea of pushing beyond our limits can give us a headache (literally).
We have a choice; we can spaz out and claim writer’s block, or we recognize the tension as a sign of growth and work through it.
Which approach have you chosen in the past? Which will you choose in the future?
