"Any writers use any creativity aids"


  

          

I'm pretty much an ex-druggy. But I've been clean for nearly 2 years. *Horray for me* but I've been smoking tree tough for the past two weeks and I've written about 30 pieces of material. I write fiction.

Many people swear by it, but I suppose that occurs because most things are enhanced/elevated/amplified when intoxicated. A single note can sound majestic when intoxicated and thus your level of self appreciation is deceiving.

Art is a discipline and should be treated as such. I would recommend to clear your mind, meditate, and take a walk in nature if you can before you begin.

If you make tree's a regular part of your creative process you will not want to do it when sober, and will find it to be a dull experience.

it really depends on the person AND the type of weed.

8/10 of anyone's favorite artists used drugs.

there are times throughout the creative process where weed isn't helpful--i'll agree with that. but in general, it can help.

I dunno, I can't clap to it

as an aid that's fine, just don't rely on it exclusively

creativity can be manifested on both sides of the coin

IU smoke trees lol. Not for creativity,m to settle my overactive brain/imagination. I toil through hundreds of different ideas per day. I will puff to settle my thoughts and focus them. I don't need it to actually write, however... just to settle my brain down enough to write.

I usually have to wait a good 10-15 after puffing before I can start.

I wanted to pull it back up cause I was debating ordering a bottle. I've hit a creative lull and am looking for a pick me up to help focus.

For example, Adderall helps me focus. But it doesn't make me more creative. If anything, it might slightly hamper that part of my brain. It's an imperfect trade-off.

I think I mistyped...or misread the direction of the thread lol.

It's not so much a creative lull as it is just getting off my ass and applying these ideas. I feel a little burnt out toward the end of the workday and could use something to help me focus when I get home to work on my projects.
