When you are stuck, use “Oblique strategies – defeat creative block”

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/06/10

Sometimes you are stuck. Then this often helps, even outside the music industry:

[WayBack] Oblique strategies – defeat creative block: Draw random Oblique Strategy cards to break through creative block.

These are disruptive which is the whole point being stuck.

Obey the first and only rule: pick the first card and apply what it says.

  • Do NOT fall for the urge to draw multiple cards.
  • Do NOT make a list of all cards then choose from it.

Both above failures kill the randomness of the above strategy.
