Creativity block

How many times you opened up your empty arranging window in your DAW with an intention to write a hit song and found just zero ideas in your mind, and asked yourself what to do with that?  Well, looks like no Muse knocking at your door, right?

Creativity Block | Article In Professional Blog | From Iris YuvelirRemember, finding yourself stuck with no creative idea is a common thing for creative people, I call it “creative block”, everybody knows it. But the more you try to deliberately, by force push through this creative block the less you like the results - every piece of melody, every beat or lyric you make sounds generic at best.
I’ve come to a conclusion that one of the reasons why creative blocks happen is because we’re too obsessed with the intention to write a hit; we put ourselves under an unreasonable pressure of creation only an extraordinary hit. If you experience this situation now - my congratulations, your perfectionism stifled your creative flow! 
Here are the two practical steps to follow in order to get rid of creativity block:
1.The first step to remedy this issue is to acknowledge that you are in the creative block because of your perfectionism.
2. Second step is just giving yourself a permission to create the worst piece of music ever. Let the bad, mediocre, mundane, “too much on the nose” songs flow out of you like a mudflow after a hurricane. Let it all out of your system. This approach will help to ease up the stress your subconsciousness is experiencing every time you begin to write music.

IMPORTANT: never delete these "masterpieces" from your files. Eventually you will be surprised to see that among these “bad songs” there are actually real gems.
