Do you know when your creative mind wants its creative time? Everyone knows that there are certain parts of the day when you are “better” at doing things. For some people its early morning and for others it is late at night. But for everyone there is some part of the day when you more focused and filled with energy. Creative “slumps” often come for me when my daily rhythm is interrupted by “life stress”. In my opinion, identifying your Creative Time is one of the most important things you can do to produce art that speaks to your creative being. Protect your creative time – put a “Do Not Disturb” sign on your studio/room door. Silence your phone – Don’t respond to text messages. Inspiration often comes at the strangest times, but give it a place to grow and your art will show it.
