What is it with getting urges to create something — a story, a song, a video — during a time when you can’t (like, say, at your day job)? Then when you finally get the time to do so, that urge is nonexistent?
Is there a way to get back that urge, that same passionate feeling when you do find yourself with the time to create? Do you just force yourself to write or sing or record?
I suppose making yourself create would be the best way to go (perhaps after a mental break from, say, your day job), yet I wonder if others worry about not doing their best work if they’re not passionate in the moment of its creation. Although, if you remember that excited urge to create while you’re working, it may return tenfold and really shine through your work.
This is more of a contemplative post than anything else. Anyone else go through this? Any suggestions for keeping that creative urge, or just channeling it again when you do have the time to create?
