Stop comparing. Take a break from Twitter, reading blogs, Etsy, whatever and focus on your own work rather than the work of others. Think about what you’re making, why you’re making it and who you’re making it for. If you can answer these questions confidently, then why should you worry about others?
Get out. Leave your work space and go out into the world for inspiration. Take a walk in the woods, on the beach or somewhere in nature. Take photos of houses, of trees, of colors of flowers that make you feel good. Be observant, deeply observant about your surroundings and try to pinpoint what you like and why you like it. Can any of this translate into your work? Or if nature isn’t readily accessible, check out an art gallery, peruse art books in the library or people watch at a coffee shop. Inspiration can be everywhere if you look for it.
Switch it up. Do you create in the evening in your room? Maybe you should work at the kitchen table in the morning. For me, changing my work environment is a powerful refresher and if it helped me cram for tests in college, perhaps it will help you too.
Take care of the simple tasks. Not up to creating? Great. Maybe now is when you should catch up on email, look at bills and taxes or do the other mundane things. I bet you even have laundry to fold. (blegh)
Overall, don’t beat yourself up over a lack of inspiration. Sometimes there is a deep-rooted reason for a lack of inspiration, but sometimes you may feel uninspired just because. Don’t think too hard about it—accept it.
