It may come as no surprise to hear me say that my creativity seems to have plummeted since giving birth. Some days I feel like it was torn out of me when they extracted my placenta. I find it a real struggle to balance being a mother and being an artist, a challenge I'm sure many mamas identify with. And while I'm not really all that surprised at the revelation that it's difficult to maintain all of these compartmentalized parts of oneself whilst rearing a child, I am sort of shocked that it's taken me nearly two years to understand why: I've neglected creativity. Duh.
