The last three days have been a complete waste for me creatively. I cannot think straight or come up with anything. Anyone ever get like that? Ya just can't think of an idea thats worth pursuing? I have sketches up the ying-yang that I've done these last few days and half of them ended up in the garbage. ARGH! I hate when I get in slumps like this, and I hate to say it but it wears me down VERY low VERY quickly, and usually takes a lot to bring me back up. :-/
Times like these are really awful because it makes me question myself, and my ability. I start thinking, "Well... crap, am I good enough for this? Seriously?", and that just sucks having to think that about yourself. I have surrounded myself literally with paints and papers and everything used to create so that if I DO get an idea I can just GO for it!... But I cannot think of a single dang thing this week.
I find that sometimes just browsing the web, and seeing other peoples work sometimes helps with and idea or two. But so far no luck. This time of year is physically and mentally very hard for me, and I feel like I really need a push by someone else, weather it be my husband or friends, or family. Sometimes I need that finger pointed as guidance.
Ohhhh what a sappy post this is. But yeah, any thoughts how how you get through a block? I am open to any and ALL ideas at this point.
Happy Thanksgiving fellow Canucks! :-)
