We all get caught in a creative slump sometimes. What can you do to bring yourself out of it? Author Elizabeth Gilbert, who penned the bestselling book “Eat, Pray, Love” shares her ideas about the importance of moving from one extreme feeling to another when undergoing creative projects. For instance, Gilbert encourages all creatives to admit that their work both matters and doesn’t matter. Not to say your work is not important, but rather that your creative genius can often be blown out of proportion by the person it matters to the most: you. Gilbert also stresses that fear can be a driving force in creative expression, just as long as it does not control or hinder you. Acknowledging that fear exists can be daunting, but letting that fear co-exist with your creative passions may inspire bravery in whichever work you do.
