One of the most common struggles I hear from people in this community is a lack of consistency. People have a tough time making time for their art and letting creativity be a regular part of their lives.

We've all been there. You get a buzz of creative energy, like lightning in your veins. You go get your art supplies and you sit down to begin drawing. And as you stare at the blank paper, you realize.... You don't have any ideas. Nothing. Nada. Your creative well has run dry. This used to happen to me all the time. I would get so frustrated with myself and often end up admitting defeat after a few minutes to go watch TV or scroll through social media, dejected. What do you do when you have no...
