The creative block always happens, no matter where you are in your journey.

If you’re an artist or a creative, chances are you’ve hit a creative plateau. Making it difficult to create something new and causing problems with seeing how to get out of the slump, creative plateaus are a part of the process.

This week, I’m talking about creative plateaus and how to get out of them. I’ve definitely gone through my share of these periods (in fact I’m in one right now), and there are a few things that I have found that really help me push through.
