Confessions of a Creative Soul #1 –


Some days I feel the urge to create (mostly photo shoots). Sometimes I try to redirect that urge to simpler things such as reading about different cameras, watching tutorials online, writing posts on this blog, or editing a random photo from my archive.

Most of the time, these small acts are not enough. I feel in my very being the need to create something fresh, something new, it doesn’t have to be good, it just has to be mine. My main obstacle usually, is laziness. I’m too tired to go out and look for locations to shoot. My brain doesn’t want to work. Even still, that urge is something that I can not ignore. It nags at me all day. If I don’t do anything about it, it nags at me the next day, and the next. Sometimes it stops, but most times it persists until I finally do something about it.

I am having one of those days,

… and I’m not quite sure what to do about it.


Do you ever feel this way about your chosen creative craft? How do you deal with it? Help me cope in the comments below!



  1. I love writingm, particularlymthe process of being creatively inspired to write but I hate the oldnfashioned approach that is still really embedded in editing fiction. Its this aspect of usiness of writing that I dislike. Granted, we owe our readers our best writing, but I have seen so much potentially great wtiting dissected and dismissed

  2. I feel you too. I’ve been in the position before. In fact, it’s many times. Most importantly, you need to ditch that thought, the procrastination and take action. My mind couldn’t stop thinking about concepts and thoughts. But I’ll write it down on my notebook. When I can put together a string of coherent words, that’s when the satisfaction arises. Try that!
