I’m not always inspired. And if I wait for that ping of electricity to penetrate my brain, that eureka called “an idea”, it may never come.
May I recommend sheer, hard work. Pen to paper. Or fingers to computer. If you’re writing, don’t complete that paragraph…leave something for next time, so that you can avoid writer’s block. Painting, just start doodling, or paint the mailbox with flowers.
Always have materials handy. Take a class. Go to a museum. Walk in the garden. But do the work. Inspiration won’t always make you move your fingers over the keyboard.
Colorists…try the Geo Palette if you’re bored with foils. Paint hair on Clearviews. Use the handheld palette for a touch of balayage, a soupcon of color.
Force yourself. Creativity arrives like a surprise present. Embrace it, and start over tomorrow.
