Austin Kleon on what he does if he’s feeling blocked creatively:
“When I stall out, it’s time to start taking things in again: read more, re-read, watch movies, listen to music, go to art museums, travel, take people to lunch, etc. Just being open and alert and on the lookout for That Thing that will get me going again. Getting out the jumper cables and hunting down a battery.”
When I’m in a creative lull, I usually find I’m in a reading lull as well.
I need to consume good stuff in order to make good stuff.
