Can't do it?  How about bending the rules, pussyfooting around the rules.
Maybe it's memories of breaking the rules.
 You can start with figuring out what the rules are for you when you make art.
Then go on to rules you have lived by.
Rules you have broken.
Rules you were told to live by.
Rules our society makes.
Rules we break.

Of course, you can always break these rules by not breaking rules.
