|How do you avoid repeating yourself, or falling into formula? How do you stay fresh?
listen and watch others.
It's a work in progress...
I am very, very lucky in that I free-write (and paint, dance etc) which means that I never plan a project - it just happens from the subconscious and so even I am surprised by the results!
see former answer. And let myself be challenged by others.
If I see myself falling into a pattern, I take time out to clear my head. I take my dog for a walk or put on some music. I read blog posts for inspiration.
Very difficult. Once you start writing a lot, you develop a writing style which then fits like a comfortable pair of shoes. The only way to stay fresh would be to walk a different way home every now & then.
I've never been good at repeating myself even if I try. I don't actively think about how I will be creative. I just feel it.
Stay out of the way...
With photography I feel like I actually do not have any repetition, which occasionally annoys me as I feel it means I lack some sort of theme or motif in my work.
In my music I simply try to listen to as many genres of music as possible. My style of writing changes due to my influences and what I consider to be beautiful at that moment.
