If you are a creative person you have no doubt suffered a creative block or two, if not then you are neither a) lying or b) bragging, in which case, I say “knock it off, asshole.” I am a long-time sufferer of creative blocks. I’ve always just accepted it as a chronic condition and tried my best not to beat my head against the wall between me and my potential greatness. It had not occurred to me to ever figure out where these blocks were coming from, until now. Instead of looking inward for the answer, I looked to Google, as I do for most everything in my life. I read a slew of articles, most of which, outlined the same reasons for creative blocks. I compiled the top five that I felt pertained to me.
