Another way to beat creative block and make the most of your creative opportunities.

So you have limited time to be creative? But now one of those golden moments comes upon you. What are you going to do with it? Do not let this moment pass.

It’s happened to me a lot, how about you? You finally get some creative time and you’re either blocked creatively or you spend half the time looking for the materials you need to bring your project to fruition. What can you do about it? Well any Boy Scout can tell you, (because it’s their motto) Be Prepared!

Here’s how:
If ideas are your problem, you should be storing them (See chapter 2). You should have a notebook or a computer file full of them ready for when that moment comes. Then you can just grab it and get started. 

Secondly, you’ll need to organize your materials. If you’re blessed to have a studio keep it stocked and organized. A place for everything and everything is in it’s place. If you don;t have a space, keep a box or a bag stocked with your essential tools and materials ready so when the moment is right, you can grab it and get to work. I keep a sketchbook and my laptop nearby at all times so that I at least have the bare minimum, plus my studio is set up and for the most part ready for action. My area of needed improvement is in organization, but even so, for the most part, I can at least start a project at a moment’s notice.

Creativity and inspiration sometimes strike at odd times. You’ve got to be ready.
