When do you feel the most creative?

Hi, Hey, Hello!

This post was scheduled with the title alone and so that is all I had to go on, which is always nice and useful, but then again the me of the late hours/early hours of a day doesn’t always make the best decisions. The good news (for me at least) is that this is a nice and concise title that I have been left with by past me.

So, when do I feel most creative?

Currently, it feels like almost never. Seriously, I feel like creativity is just alluding me in all forms. It’s just not there. So there’s that.

However when it does decide to be a thing that visits me and make a home in my life, then I feel most creative at times when it is the most inconvenient.

When I’m in the shower, when I’m about to drift off into a proper good sleep, when I’m sat in a meeting, when I’m just sat at my desk doing work, when I’m in the middle of exercising. Just ya know all the times in which I can’t really sit down and write them out coherently and try and figure out just what the hell I am trying to get at.

It basically means that I have a lot of random notes on my phone, dotted around my desk, filed away in vaults of my brain that I’ve lost access to now. It means that creatively speaking I am a total mess and I work in pockets of time where I am a) focused enough to actually pour words out onto a page and b) where I am actually inspired in the moment enough to write more than a single disjointed sentence.

I keep trying to get into a routine with it all, and I was doing okay with it at first, but then as with most things that I start out well with it just sort of fizzled out and I stopped being as disciplined with it. So, basically I need to get better at that.

But in summary, I am at my most creative at the times in which it is the least convenient for me but sometimes it gives me ideas that stick around and linger and pretty much beg for me to do something with them until I eventually do so.

…which I am slowly starting to do, but more on that at a later date.

Anyway, parentheses count: 1. See you tomorrow!

  1. Agreed.

    It’s always when it’s inconvenient for me as well. That and usually at work (which is sometimes inconvenient if it’s being creative for anything other than work). I think it’s most annoying when it happens when I’m about to fall asleep because then I have to get up and write it down, otherwise I know I won’t remember it in the morning.

    I hope you get your creativity streak back soon! It sucks being in a slump.

    1. Yeah I always end up writing things down that make sense in the at the time but when I look back are so incoherent that I don’t have any idea what I was getting at haha. And I hope it comes back to, I have an idea that I want to write but am currently so unmotivated to do anything with it! x
