It goes by many names artist block, creative block, slump, etc.  A creative slump is essentially a recession. Your mind takes a step back to recover from the excesses of creative prosperity. If this is your first time, you may believe it will last forever. But I have some effective strategizes that will be great to get you out.

 If you haven’t already put a stop to your creative endeavors, now is the time. Forcing creativity only leads to a never-ending cycle of frustration. You’ve already fallen into a funk, and everything you make will reflect that. This will not only add to your stress, but it will also put you at risk of wasting time and materials. You should allow your creative brain to rest and recharge as an athlete does after a race or training session. Set a timeframe for your break, whether it’s three days, three weeks, or three months, commit to it, and don’t feel guilty about it.

Actively generating ideas has an additional unintended benefit. You train your idea muscle to work in your subconscious mind, and it activates when you’re not focused on your craft. This will lead to spontaneous revelatory moments that will bring you the answer that you are looking for. Just make sure you can write it down while you have that.

Another way to help your slump is to try something. Escape your comfort zone and go into a world that you haven’t done before. Play with lights, shadows, and creative genres. Who knows what you will come up with? 

There are plenty of tips and tricks to use.
