Creativity is not constant. It comes in ebbs and flows.
Sometimes you have days when it flows strong. You can write, and write and write some more. The worlds fall into place so easily, the description is so vivid it just works.
And there are other days that you struggle.
Other days that you try to put words down and they don’t sing to you. Words that feel flat and boring and you know they will need so much work in the editing room.
But even in that ebb, you have to keep going forward. Because at some point, the creativity will come back again.
And then the words will flow.
