When you are a creative mind, nothing can be worse than a brain fart. Not having any ideas that you can bring to fruition can be a complete downer.
There are times when I grab my Starbucks and fruit, prepare my space, pull out my trusty pen and pad, and nothing comes to mind. I stare at the blank page as it seems to taunt me about my lack of creativity.
Luckily for me, I come from a family of creatives, and they offer me good ideas of how to get my creative juices flowing.
When I find myself in a creative drought, I do the following: exercise, turn on some Soca music and clean house. I am not sure how that combination all works together, but baby, I get the job done and I get results!
So we asked a few of our #PynkGirls what they did to get productive and here are their awesome suggestions:
“A pen and a blank notebook page. A list of “to-do” tasks and my C.O. Bigelow Lip Shine.”– Maleeka H.
“Wine and Wifi.” -Serrot S.
“Play music and scroll through Pinterest.” -Janelle S.
“Music and my style diary! But mostly some inspiration.” -Sara J.
“Sundays with Bae keeps me tapped into a continued state of creativity. That work/life balance is crucial for me. Motherhood keeps me grounded but being a lover– that inspires me.” -Priya W.
“Music and a clean space.” -Rahma R.
“First i allow someone to piss me off then i blast the most outrageous music in my playlist. I swear it works!” -Dani P.
“Security. When my bills are paid and ain’t no man irking my nerves, then I do my best work. I also love a cup of coffee, my beats headphone and a good playlist! –Karla B.
It looks like many of us love good music to help get the job done!
