One of the biggest challenge creatives face is sitting down to actually do the job. There are many ways to cull out one’s creativity. While some writers wait for inspiration to strike them like a lightning bolt, others keep churning out contents everyday so their best content would turn up at last. Some artists want to be original; and some think it is best for artists to catch their inspiration from the work of other artists. All in all, we know that as creatives our methods differ and how we get the best from our minds is up to us.
