You want to create, but you feel stuck. You feel like your work is just boring, and all your creativity just disappeared.
We’ve all got those days. It’s a sign that we are artists, creative people - we’re constantly in search of inspiration.
Whenever I feel stuck and uninspired I take some time off, and just do whatever I feel like doing.
Sometimes it’s going for a run, sometimes taking a nap, sometimes browsing through the web.
That last one is actually a good one if you want to fuel your inspiration a bit.
Take some time off, maybe once a week, for an hour or two, to just sit down and browse the internet.
Set yourself the goal of at least finding one new blog/magazine/website that you love.
Click around, google for keywords that go through your mind, try to actively find new sources of inspiration. There is always more to find on the internet, so the chances you’ll end up with some new inspiration are pretty good.
Once you come across a new site that you like it’s likely that there will be a link somewhere to another site with similar content, or that is just as inspiring.
Go with the flow, and actively look out for new sources of inspiration.
So it’s totally ok to take a few hours off - at least it’s for a good reason.
