This is not advice I like taking myself, but like many things that are good for you, it initially fills you with dread. Next time you feel you are too tired, ill, uninspired or lacking in motivation to create some new art, create some anyway. Force yourself.
Similarly, if you don’t have what you think you are going to need to create your art, create some art with what you do have. Just scrape whatever you have to hand and make something. Even if you think you have no time, steal some time from somewhere.
This will go against the grain with all of you, I am pretty sure, but the results are worth the apparent pain. You will be rewarded with two very valuable gifts. Firstly, you will be surprised at how good the thing you make turns out to be. You are almost certainly more creative than you give yourself credit for. Secondly, you will learn that you can create, even when you feel you can’t. That’s an empowering piece of information to hold onto.
So surprise yourself. You won’t regret it. I promise.
