Writer’s block, boredom, hitting a wall – all are terms creative people use when they run out of ideas. One of the best ways to overcome those moments of terror is to work on multiple projects at once. In fact, multiple projects may be the best remedy for creative block. Plus, I’ve discovered that if you actually want to make a living with your creative profession, managing multiple projects becomes a necessity. But if you struggle with simultaneous creative efforts, here’s 4 keys that should help:

1. Invest in better creative tools.  I’m always shocked at the number of writers, musicians, filmmakers, and other artists who skimp on apps and other resources.

Here’s my challenge to you – if you want to be a professional, then act like one and start by investing in yourself. Don’t let another day go by without getting your hands on the tools that will help you focus on ideas, and stop struggling just to get those ideas captured. FULL POST
