Creative Ruts are Brain Ruts

Creative Development for Artists, Writers and all Artistic Creativity

I wrote a couple of days ago about getting yourself out of creative ruts. Chris Garrett writing on Copyblogger yesterday really nailed the essence of it: challenge yourself to use your brain in an unusual way.

Yes – that’s what all my tips were getting at, but I didn’t say it so concisely as Chris.


‘Doctor, doctor – my creativity feels all tired and unimaginative.’

‘I see. I’ll need to examine your brain. If I just… Aha! A nasty case of brain ruts.’

‘Is it serious, doctor?’

‘It deadens the mind and the spirit – but some people actually like it. Just remember to use your brain in an unusual way whenever you can.’

‘How can I ever thank you?’
