If you have to force it, it’s probably …

Yeah. That’s where all my creative ideas are right now.

Writing and drawing are at a standstill right now… I want to do all the things, but my muse is giving me a big fat middle finger the past couple of days. I want to get the story down on Book 2, and I want to play around with my Wacom drawing tablet. Book 2 is yet again stalled as I have found an end point that isn’t really an end, and I can’t even figure out what I want to draw. Even picking out a blog topic after a day or two of no blogging was a struggle.
I guess it’s a sign that I need to take a break from it all. All that stuff probably should be left alone until the creative funk is gone, which is something I have trouble doing. I am so driven to complete the projects that I want to do that I can’t seem to make myself take that introspective step back.

I guess the lesson to be learned here is that you can’t really force the creative process sometimes. It’s good to try to push through on some things, but knowing when to sit back is important as well. What I need to do is find that balance between pushing through and dragging along.

What do y’all think? Is it better to keep up the momentum every time or should you give yourself some “time off” to regroup?
