There are times when I can spit out 5-6 poems in one sitting. As well as moments when my pen is DRY. It happens.
I don’t beat myself up over it. Instead, I distract myself from, “The elephant in the room”’ lol!!

If you have issues that you’re not dealing with or simply too much going on, having a lot of negative energy coming your way or wading through, all these things can cause a block with writing & creativity.
I find something that relaxes/inspires me. It could be a walk in the park,

Bonding with Nature, especially large bodies of water. It seems to relax me to the point of rendering me sleepy 😴.
If you can? Take a vacation. If not go to the beach. If you can’t reach the beach. Taking time to cherish what’s right in front/surrounding you works too…
Try some Grounding. It’s sooo relaxing & feels great in between your toes! Not to mention the health benefits☺️.
Another thing I do, not just for inspiration but for fun, is listening to Music 🎶 🎶🎶. I suggest that you listen to what you prefer or like. What inspires one, may do nothing for another. So stick with what works for you. But just as when we’re sad we listen to the Blues, try some Inspirational/Pick-me-up tunes!
Releasing of healthy endorphins & serotonin levels in the brain can also get the juices flowing. Some people get a massage, work-out, or play sports (physical activity – yes this includes sex, lol! what? It inspires many a thing😉 – Safe Sex Please & don’t take it as an Inspiration Card to keep jumping all over, have some discretion🙂). Heck! Some go to the club or my personal fav, turning on my sound system at home & “Jammin!”

The Piano Guys
And yes, try some F&F (Family & Friends) Time.
LOVE IS THE GREATEST INSPIRATION THERE IS 😉.
The point is, to keep living, stay active, find something to release, calm, relax, and to allow yourself to just FLOW. You may be shocked to see what your creative mind comes up with!
“Namastè & One Love”❤️💛💚
