On creativity

How difficult can it be? To stare at a blank sheet and not being able to come up with some decent words. Or is this just the perception we are holding up and which can change throughout time. I notice that when I had a lack of sleep, creativity is limited; words, speech and actions tend to flow less smooth. My brain seems to function on standy mode, not really able to process and rework different ideas. Strange, as our standard body and mind functions still work pretty ok. Yet those creative juices protest and need to be pulled out of our head by force. A decent night of sleep is necessary and almost essential to increase the quality of our ideas and our art. Sometimes I tend to forget that, although I will be friendly reminded the next day, no explanation needed. Let’s get some more sleep.
