Feeling Creatively Uninspired? You're Not Alone!

You are not the only musician to have lulls in creative inspiration and moments where you might get writer's block -- and it's easy to forget that. Here are some tips to help you overcome it!

Surround Yourself with Creative People

Being around people who are actively working on their craft can be incredibly motivating. They can provide feedback, ideas, a new perspective, and may collaborate as well!

Just Start Writing/Recording

Pick a set of time you'll record either on your phone or on a piece of paper and keep going until the timer ends. Don't put pressure on yourself to make everything sound great since you can edit it later.

Step Out of Your Comfort Zone

Another way to get inspired creatively is to try new things musically. Take risks, and experiment with new sounds, styles, and techniques, or even listen to new music styles!

Don't Let Fear Get in the Way

Seeing others book performances or produce new music can make you feel like you aren't doing enough. Sometimes creating the new music itself can be stressful if you don't feel like you know which direction you want to go in. Don't overthink it! Here is what Eminem has to say on the subject:

"If people take anything from my music, it should be motivation to know that anything is possible as long as you keep working at it and don’t back down."

Have an Open Mind

Be open to inspiration from unexpected sources. Inspiration can come from anywhere, whether it's a conversation you overheard, a movie you watched, or a walk through nature.

Set Goals

Some examples are writing a certain number of songs, recording an album, or performing live, can give you the motivation and direction you need to take action and make progress.

Get in the Studio

A lot of people have the misconception that they must have the entirety of their song completed with backing before coming into a recording studio, but this is not the case. If you have an idea, you can bring it to a music producer and they can help you fully develop your ideas.

Take a Break

Relax, go for walk, whatever you need to do to decompress. Often, the best inspiration comes when it's least expected. In a famous example, Paul McCartney dreamt the melody to his song "Yesterday."

Getting inspired creatively takes effort and time, but by surrounding yourself with other creative people, taking risks, being open to inspiration, setting goals and taking breaks when needed, we can tap into that inspiration and use it to motivate yourself and others to take risks and accomplish your musical goals.
