How to get out of a funk?
Upon seeing this good advice yet again, I’ve decided that I need to get off my duff and just put in some hours with the camera instead of waiting for inspiration to strike. I know that it will, eventually, but I’m conceding that I need to get proactive about it. I had a really low day today (on a Sunday), feeling generally restless and cynical and cranky. I know that what I need is to get my artistic muse cranked up and it would take care of a lot of those feelings. I’ve been getting a decent amount of food and sleep and exercise a week, so I know that isn’t what’s eating at me.
I’m not generally fond of the “picture a day” kind of habits, but I think I will be putting forth some effort into just forcing some things, photographically. It’s going to be uncomfortable, and I’m going to be posting some work that is pretty experimental for me on the blog. That in itself will be uncomfortable, because up till now I’ve generally posted work that I like and when I don’t have anything recent that I like, I don’t post. I’m a little private that way. But it’s time for a change. Let’s see whether it makes a difference.
