blocked.

I’m faced with writers block ALL the time. Writing essays, in the middle of tests, writing these blog posts, etc.–ironically, I erased my opening sentence for this post at least 15 times before deciding what to type. It’s frustrating, but usually a quick break, a nap, or working on something else helps and I find inspiration to continue my work. Artistic blocks, on the other hand, are completely different. I’ve had weeks at a time where I have no motivation or inspiration to even pick up a camera or open any design software. I spend a lot of time questioning if it is really what I want to spend my life doing. I know I love being a photographer and I love doing design work, but sometimes I just feel stuck. When I feel static as a photographer I usually grab my friends and demand they come with me to try something new, and I fall in love with photography all over again. Do any of you ever feel this way? And if you do, what helps you move past it?
