When people are creative and creativity is connected to the work we love to do day by day , sometimes we can reach that point where we get bogged down and become flat out uninspired. You might feel that no matter what you draw it isn’t turning out right or you could have done something better and screw the work you’ve been working on into a ball and throw it in the bin.

Tip 1 . Give yourself a break if things aren’t working out creatively (aka don’t be harsh on yourself) understand that everyone has rubbish days even you.
Tip 2 . Take a some time away and do something you enjoy doing to give yourself a fresher from your project work and come back to it shortly after with an open mind.
