I anticipated a bit of a slump, post my exhibition, but I thought I had planned cleverly enough to sneak past it…
I made plans to escape on a little camping break soon after the opening and I put off starting my eagerly awaited launch into encaustics until after our return from camping.
And as much as I loved the camping and the encaustics are all that I hoped they would be I am still in a bit of a blogging and inspiration blah. The rest of life is swimming along just fine and I am still creating… mostly experimenting and learning with the encaustics. I’m just not feeling those bolts of inspiration.
I’m normally so keen to blog, with my head full of more posts than I have time to share. But lately I’m just not feeling it, I’m so out of touch in my blog reading and I have been seriously considering just closing down the blog and walking away.
In my heart I know this would be a mistake. I value the friendships I have made through blogging to much and I know that being part of blogging community brings me inspiration and motivation.
I just need to give myself a kick in the pants and get back into the swing of things. I know many of you must have been through this sort of thing before. How did you pull yourself out of it?
