How to Break Out of a Creative Rut (via Copyblogger)

I came across this conversation worthy infographic from Copyblogger (Brian Clark), and it was perfect timing, as I regroup from my New York trip and adventures at Blogworld and the concurrently running Book Expo. As I organize my photos, notes, and main takeaways from my awesome journey, I felt the content here was certainly noteworthy, and being that Copyblogger offered up the Code (very clever), how could I resist?

Do you feel you are inherently creative but your creativity gets blocked? I felt a little like this on the plane on the way home to SF from New York, when I was writing along at a brisk speed, only to be interrupted by the beverage cart, a little turbulence, and the adorable but squirming 6 year-old beside me, Emma, whose enchantment with her handy all-in-one United/Continental Snack Pack (Jellybellies, chocolate chip cookies, chips of some kind, and...a fork?) served as only temporary entertainment.
  • Are you working too hard to avoid failure?
  • Do you try to write and edit at the same time?
  • Do you over-analyze to the point of inertia?
  • Do you let others discourage you?
If the answer is "yes," to any of these, you NEED this infographic. And if you're like me, stop doing your best writing on'll need to find a real Landing Page solution. And me? I think I found my creative inspiration for at least the next week in "Emma's Snack Pack."

Doesn't that sound like a great title for something?
