I do not believe that inspiration should be relied upon for creative work.
There is SO much foundational and structural work you _have_ to do before "inspiration" can even make a dent in The Work. Boring organization, cleaning the shop, purchasing supplies, actually getting to your desk, roughing in a concept, stretching, etc.
Do all of that first before complaining that that inspiration didn't strike.
@csalzman inspiration is never my problem; the amount of time I can spend on perspiration _always_ is.
@hypomodern yes, same here! I regret how much time I spent not doing the perspiration part back when I had the time.
