I think when you can’t work, you have to force yrself to work. Like, maybe take a little break for a few days but don’t sit around waiting for some great / revolutionary idea to hit you. I’m a firm believer that inspiration comes while you work, not while you wait. So make a lot of shitty work, make a lot of boring work, all that matters is that you’re making a lot. It about the process and the act, not so much the outcome. Think of the end product as something secondary, your process and struggling and trialling and failing are what improve yr art.
