Consumption Overload and Fertilizer
It is easy to get influenced by someone else’s point of view. After all, that is the beauty of media consumption.
Sometimes those messages are positive. Sometimes not so much. The Internet has made it easier to consume rather than produce.
Differentiating and approaching media critically of all kinds takes discipline, and that discipline needs to be cultivated.
The next time media overload occurs, getting in the way of artistic production, fall back a moment and take some time. Turn off the screen.
Write a one page free write and clear the mind. Get all of that consumption on paper and spin it.
It can be ample fertilizer used to create.
