Artist's/Writer's block

Wikipedia defines writer's block as a phenomenon involving temporary loss of ability to continue writing, usually due to lack of inspiration or creativity

I don't consider myself a writer, even though I've written nearly every day for the last 15 months for this blog. In the last few weeks, my writing has become a struggle. Inspiration is slow to find me or me it and I start to view the blog as a chore rather than a pleasure at times.

I know all the tricks to getting through a block, whether artistic or writing, but I haven't put them to much use yet. The reason for the blog was for my art and with my life moving at breakneck speed in many areas, the art is now moving ahead as well as I want it to. All this is in my control I know. Only I can make the time and take the decision to move it ahead.

So my block is a combination of art and writing, as one fuels the other.
