Has all your creative juice dried up?
Has your ‘get up and go’ just got up and gone?
Does this mean you’re ‘over’ your beloved craft and will never create again?
Have we finally run out of questions?
Seriously, this is something that many of us have experienced at some point in our creative lives. And it can be very stressful.
You just can’t seem to get in the mood to be creative and so you stop creating.
Let Nature take its course
Remember when you’re looking for something that you know you put away but you just can’t find it? Or when you’re trying to remember something and it just won’t come to you? And finally you decide to just put it out of your mind and stop thinking about it.
Next thing you know it just pops into your head without any effort. Admittedly, this often occurs at an inconvenient time but at least it comes back to your memory.
Well when you feel your mojo has flown out of the window and you just can’t seem to get some creative inspiration going, try using the same technique.
Stop ‘trying’ to be creative.
Don’t let it stress you out.
Do something different.
Focus on family activities or sport or home related stuff or doing things with friends.
DO NOT get a guilt thing happening because you can’t get in a creative mood.
Maybe your brain is telling you it’s time to take a break. So just go with the flow.
After a while you will find that you will naturally come back to your craft and feel in the mood to start creating again. But don’t push it. It may take a few weeks, it may take months.
Remember the words of the Prophet: it won’t happen overnight, but it will happen.
And you will be relaxed and ready to go again when your scrapbooking inspiration does come back.
