I try to uphold to a morning routine by carving out time for myself before the hectic throws of the day. My commitment to writing three long hand pages (morning pages) began many years ago when I read the book, The Artist Way, by Julia Cameron. The routine of writing everyday clears the mind, relieves stress and allows you to tap into your well of creativity on a regular basis. My writing this morning inspired this doodle.
My sketch book, pencil, pen on paper.
What do books, artwork and a gnome with a broken foot have in common? Nothing! I am in search of inspiration in any form. I have been caught in a dust storm of sorts, a creative dry spell. I am finding ways to replenish thy soul, by doing the things I enjoy, like reading books from my favorite authors. It helps to know that this will pass, to be patient and to do the things that will fill my well of inspiration.
I would love your feedback. How do you cope with a creative dry spell?
Other books I enjoy reading when in need of inspiration:
Julia Cameron, The Artist Way
Henriette Anne Klauser, Write It Down Make It Happen
David Usher, Let The Elephants Run
