I caught myself repeating something along the lines of ‘I have been writing everyday for over 5 months, it’s only natural for creativity to decline’. Self-defeating thoughts don’t necessarily come in overtly negative tones. This one sounds quite innocent. It could even be true, that something to replenish creative resources might be in order. However if I don’t deal with this or similar thoughts immediately chances are I will start believing it and before long not writing anything anymore.
What’s really confusing is that some thoughts cannot be clearly categorized into good and bad. This thought might be appropriate, if I am getting into a state and beating myself up for not having any fresh ideas. However it’s dangerous if I think it too often because it might undermine a great habit.
