Breaking the block

Sometimes the best way to come up with a good idea for a comic or a drawing or a poem or a song or anything creative is to just make a bunch of bad stuff until you come up with something that isn’t terrible. Then you take that thing and polish it up until it’s alright. Make some alright stuff and think about it and develop it until it’s something sort of cool. Do that long enough and you can usually break out of a block.

sometimes, you wake up with a killer idea and it’s almost like you’re hand is Flying frantically, trying to draw out the idea before you forget it and it’s gone forever. When that happens, all the practice you struggling through the block will come in handy.

anyways! Happy Saturday!

one perpetual block

In the last five years, i’ve gotten writers block (or whatever the kids are calling it these days) more times then I can count.  Heck, I haven’t written lyrics that i actually like in over three years.  Every once in a while I will make instrumentals i don’t hate…  But it’s been a long time since I feel like I’ve had an ear for writing good music.  Lucky for me, i usually have a few different creative outlets at my disposal when I get frustrated with one of em is developing.  But sometimes that’s the problem!  The problem with being able to just ditch a creative outlet when it gets hard means it never really gets good?  possibly?  I don’t know.

All I know is that I was planning on animating all day, and I ended up watching Star Trek Voyager.  I’ve seen every episode of TOS and TNG and enterprise, but i’ve never watched Voyager or DS9 all the way through.  I felt like I wasted the day… but i feel pretty inspired by it.  Anyways, Voyager is good.  Time to watch an episode before i go to sleep.  I’m also listening to old five iron frenzy, it is making me happy.
