My big barrier to creativity is feeling that it's pointless since it's so hard to get traction. The world feels hostile (maybe reality, maybe cognitive distortion, IDK) so it's like everything I want to say is pre-rejected or ignored, so I end up in the steady state of not creating. The indie TTRPG design scene has some solutions for this inside of games, eg "IIEE with teeth", but at the meta level it's the same social media free-for-all as everything else, which I struggle with.
