In this week’s episode, we’ll be talking about something we do all the time but may not realize it: spending our creativity. I’ll share my story about how writing every day actually harmed me creatively, and how I rebounded from that to find healthier, more focused writing time, and I’ll share some tips to help you maximize your creative energy.
“Have you ever had a moment where you sit down to write, but all you feel is drained and as if there’s nothing waiting for you – no plots, no stories, no characters, nothing? That’s what it feels like to be creatively drained and to have spent all your creativity.”

- Different ways we spend our creativity
