Have you ever thought of your artistic inertia as a blessing and not a curse? Many creative types put a negative spin on such dormant episodes, calling these phases of hibernation "ARTISTIC BLOCK". No, no...these are critical relaxation periods for creative types when their pilot light is in reset mode. Shortly after these "breaks in action" the reset will generate a spark which often results in new ideas, turning points or revisions in one's approach to their work. A lot is always going on inside the minds of true artists. Like a sponge, the brains of creative people seem to be soaking up the world inside and around them. even when they are in a so called quiet period. These phases are not symptoms of inertia but rather recharging sessions which are critical to honor and cherish.
