If you work in a creative field, there are some days when you just run out of juice. It’s hard to keep going, day after day, sometimes. Coming up with new and creative ideas can become a chore rather than something fun. Many bloggers have felt this way before, and more will in the future. This video has some tips for keeping up your creative energy.
Ways to Stay Creative
I really want to incorporate kinetic typography into some of my blog posts. I’ve been trying to find the best way to easily create typography videos. If you’ve got any ideas, let me know! Otherwise, I suppose it’s time to learn After Effects.
I’m already doing number 11, but I really need to work on 5, 25, and especially 29. You’ll need to watch the video to know what those are. It’s worth a watch, for sure!
My favorite, however, is number 14, “Don’t give up.” Never give up, guys! I think that’s a really important message, especially when you’re first starting a new project.
I’m in a similar position with my job. I design hairstyles (in 3D), which is a lot of fun and has always been an interesting and unique opportunity. But some days are easier than others. Today is one of those days where I need to get working, but I’m having a hard time coming up with ideas!
I’ve certainly found a new creative side of myself since I started blogging. Well, it’s more like a side that’s always been there, but I didn’t really have the time or opportunity to make use of it. Sometimes changing focus helps you feel revitalized, which is exactly how I feel now. A new project is just what I needed.
Do you often find yourself in a creative fog? Perhaps this video can help you find the best way for you to stay creative.
Go through and write down the ideas that seem like something easy for you to achieve, then add in some hard and scary ones! I find that doing something I feel is too much for me is sometimes the best way to move forward.
