"You cannot force good music, as creativity will rise and fall"
This statement is very true.
I'm no stranger to 'writers block' or just lack of creativity in general sometimes, as I'm sure most producers aren't either. It would be inhuman to be able to keep writing constantly and for the quality to remain so high. Even your favourite artists will have a stack of tracks that have probably never left the confines of their own studio - that's just the way it is.
I'm my own biggest fan. I write music for myself first and foremost and I enjoy listening to what I write, which is healthy I think. Recently, I found myself listening to some of my stuff and thinking, how the hell did I do that? or will I ever be as good as this again? Of course, the answer is yes. I always tell myself that anyway, as I always strive to do better than with previous works. It's hard though, because during the low points, you have to stay positive and break out of that bubble you find yourself trapped in and move forward.
To expand on that bubble thought; we are the creators of these walls and confinements. Forced by our set of rules or style of how we should be writing, but also we have the means and tools to break down any walls we build. The other problem I have is my need to feel like what I'm doing will be remembered in years to come, or my yearning to make timeless music each and every release. It's a constant head fuck when you are in this mode of constantly competing with yourself. It is almost masochistic in a way.
Anyway, I just felt like getting that out of my head.
