I don’t know what it is – maybe it’s because of my entrenched daily routine, when I finally get an entire day off to myself. Suddenly, I’m faced with all of these incredible options: draw, paint, putter around the house, watch television, sleep, etc. If I wasn’t so tied to my routine, the choice would be simple. But the sad fact is, when faced with nearly sixteen hours of pure, unadulterated freedom, I just don’t know what to do. This is not good.
The solution, I think, is to not stick to anything remotely resembling a “routine”. Instead, try to do something different each day, even if it’s just for five minutes. With that blueprint firmly in mind, my current plan, I think, will be to draw inspiration from the world around me, just everyday stuff that I don’t usually pay any attention to. Something’s bound to jump out at me and say, “I must be incorporated into your creative process!” or something along those lines.
So, to those seeking inspiration amongst a constant barrage of daily distractions, I say, find the imagination in the mundane!
