I like to think I'm not an air head but there have been occasions when I feel like it - namely when I see the image on the right. Yes, it's the Ableton Live empty project of despair! 

So how do you go from blank project of doom to 'killer-track-omg-tiesto-just-played-it-at-ultra'?

Like any art form, creativity is of course key. It's not a skill that you can learn as such, there are no books that will give you a creative streak but there are plenty of resources that will guide you and explain some techniques that can get you over 'writer's block'.

There's two really great examples that I've come across, this short article at AfroDJMac and this free eBook from the awesome Tom Cosm with 10 key ways to 'keep the creative juices flowing'.

I'm interested to hear your methods of keeping creative and any resources you've come across too, let me know in the comments or drop me a mail!

Good luck with your next production and I look forward to hearing it, I may even mix it into one of the Immersed Radio shows!
