I occasionally hit ruts in my creativity. I been trying to shake free of the latest one the last few days. It usually stems from frustration in my current working method. These brief ruts are irritating as hell, but are really a good thing. They lead to what I consider a large leap forward in my abilities. It's an odd way to work. I annoy and frustrate myself into getting better. With some recent changes in my living and working situations these weird lulls and leaps will normalize to a more stable progression towards awesomeness.
