Creative Blocks

Have you ever heard that people who study psychology, often have issues of their own that they’re trying to work through? Yes, well, perhaps that’s why Danielle Krysa decided to write a book about creative blocks. Everyone who dabbles in something creative has blocks from time to time – right? Right. Krysa’s written hundreds and hundreds of posts about successful, working artists who seem to have this whole “creative thing” figured out, but surely they have blocks too. How do they get through them? Where do they find fresh inspiration? Do they hear their inner-critic? How do they handle negative feedback? Does it stop them in their tracks? When the ideas just aren’t there, or when the ideas are there, but their hands or materials will not cooperate, how do they find their way through?
