Demystifying myths
Creative block, most times when people hit blocks, they feel they can’t get anything done. Don’t let yourself be trapped because you can’t think of anything clever or new, you can take ideas and structures from other places, work through putting something together, it might not be the most amazing thing, but it is better to do something than nothing, focus on finishing, this way you have made progress.
