Have I Lost My Creative Mojo?

There are times when I feel like I'm losing my creativity. 2016 has felt like that throughout even though I have had loads of opportunities and times where i have been creative, I feel like this year I have lost my mojo.

I have always thought of myself as being a creative person. I am a writer, a dancer, singer a musician, an artist (albeit not a good one) But that side of me has halted this year for some reason and I don't know why. If anything this is the year I should have been the most creative I have ever been.

 It was the last half of my final year in university studying creative writing so I was writing poetry, scripts and fiction left, right and centre, trying my best to blog whenever I could.I have been a terrible blogger this year and it has made me so upset, because I love blogging. I have barely even picked up my ukulele in comparison to last year, I have barely even danced, and for me that is heartbreaking that is something I have been doing my whole life, and with singing, I have wanted to write my own songs for years and I said to myself this year I would, but i haven't written  a single lyric. So what has happened to me. Why am I not creative anymore?

I had so many plans for this year, creative wise. It was going to be the year I finally start writing a novel I have had in my head for a long time. I wanted to work on some original music and maybe even start a youtube channel. 

If anything this lack of creativity this year has really made me want to push myself to be creative next year, becuase being creative is something that brings me so much joy, I cant even explain it. 

Honestly being creative is part of who I am ,and this year I have felt kind of lost with a lot of aspects with my life and maybe my creatvity has just gone along side it.  If anything all this has proven to me that I really need to push myself when I am in a block otherwise I will never get out of it.

Do you have any advice for getting out of a creative rut? Let me know.

Write again soon x

  1. My final year in CW killed all creativity I had, I mean it literally sucked it from my soul, chewed it up and gave it back all slobbery and mushed up. I felt like pants, I felt like I had nothing left to give. I had given it all to my final dissertation and it took me a good few months to get it back - but it does come back, I promise you that! Go back to your favourite creative activities but do so in a way that you just want to enjoy it. Pick up your ukelele and play just for you, for fun, not to learn or to create, just strum and see what happens. The same goes for dancing, writing, blogging, don't force it! Have fun with it!

    You'll be oozing creativeness before you know it!
