my favorite book and latest inspiration, the dark between stars by atticus.


as artists, we inevitably encounter times of dullness

where we sit alone at our desk, drinking hot coffee and listening to the stillness

how can this happen to me?

if there’s one thing i’m good at, it’s creating

pouring my soul into my pen and feeling refreshed when i finished

but lately, my soul has been stagnant, and any spark has all but diminished

everybody says it’s normal, to experience “creator’s block”

all i want to do is rip the chains from my body and crush the lock

to listen to music and allow the words to just flow

the way they do, when my feelings have no where else to go

this body is far too tiny to hold as much in as i do

my demons fighting to catch my attention, it’s chaos, it would really surprise you

there’s so much that goes on in an artist’s head

we see poetic beauty in everything that exists, the laughs, hardships and all of the words never said

we are unique, powerful and sensitive all at once

we weave together tales of moments that we love to drink up

some are phenomenal rays of light, while others, paint a darker, moody picture

but all are my very own cosmic elixir

when i create, i am raw and real

writing down all of the things my heart always feels

you can find me dancing in an electrifying bliss, contemplating

on all of the wonderful things, i am meant to be creating

“creator’s block” is a very real struggle that we all deal with at one point or another. i’ve been experiencing it lately myself. when i get off of work, i find myself gravitating towards a mundane existence. i put on netflix and clean the apartment, mindlessly going about my evening. i forget to make time for myself to create like i used to, and that’s sad to me. i should always have energy left in the day for this. it is my sanctuary, therapy and happiness. my fingers sometimes cannot type or write fast enough to keep up with the countless words that wander through my head.

when i’m experiencing this dullness, i force myself to get inspired. listening to music, walking in nature or going to my favorite coffee shop always lights a spark in my heart. it’s the little things that inspire me, so i’m always grateful for that.

if you’re going trough this too, just know that it will pass. sometimes you have to sit yourself down and get in the mood. it is always worth it.

much love.
