Procrastination…if you have a spare 4" 16'…
Love this video on a subject near and dear to my heart.Meant to post it earlier, but I just never got around to it.
I wonder what strategies you employ to break out of inertia like writer's block? I have always found that, sometimes, just starting to write and not worrying about the content is the solution. First map out the terrain, then make sense of the words. Likewise staring at a blank page without a single idea can be overcome by making a mark on the page. A border sometimes helps me in the way that marking lines on the floor of a corridor can help a person with Parkinson's avoid freezing - rather than making it to the end of the hall they can then simply make it to the next mark.
Here's an interesting blog post about overcoming creative block by photographer Paul Indigo.
