In Need of a Muse

I had an hour of free time yesterday and went out to my studio to paint. I tried and tried to come up with something, anything to start with. But my mind was blank. And so were my journal pages.

I started adding paint to the pages. Even working on different journals at the same time to spark some kind of idea. But, nothing... Just messy pages.

I hope this creative block is only temporary. What do you do to break through a slump? I'd love any tips or ideas.

Peace, Love and Chocolate


  1. I get writer's block ... a lot! To get out of it, I usually play with my paints or markers. I just draw and play. So, perhaps it would help to free-write for a bit. Just jot down whatever comes to mind: stories, word-pictures, favorite memories. Maybe you can find a recurring theme: scenes, colors, techniques.

    I hope that helps!

    1. Thank you Angie! I never thought of that - I will try it!
