I would guess that you try to exert too much control. The kind of "sloppiness" that's useful for creativity is about letting things go.

I'm already good at this part of creativity, but precision is also pretty important. Right now I'm working on a project where I have to trace in pen (can't erase, flaws are obvious) photographs that I took. Letting things go won't help here.

Meditation might help.

I already do meditate.

As you are female

I'm not, sorry.

Swing classes are pretty good about letting either gender learn to follow, if you'd like.
