How to find inspiration

I have always been a creative person with painting, writing (short stories or lyrics) etc, but in the past year I don't have any inspiration and when I try to write something, it's always the same and I don't really get new thoughts and impulses, also I don't have the energy to really start anything.
Has anyone been in a similar situation and has an idea on how to get some inspiration again?
Creating something is the only thing that would make me feel like having a purpose and I feel like I need it, just no idea how to get into it again.

Hi Kathie, I think every creative person goes through these periods, but they usually pass. Have you tried just painting....for the love of painting, ditto with writing. Kind of like priming the pump and getting the creativity to flow.
I hope you get back in the groove my friend, good luck

This may sound stupid but could you find inspiration from your dreams/nightmares? I ask cos my emotions run wild when I'm asleep and thoughts of certain things remain non clouded and clear when I wake.

Thank you Brian!

I have tried it, but somehow not getting into the groove again and losing motivation quickly.. I hope it does come back at some point.

Thank you Petal! That is actually a very good idea, I will try that.

To unblock your creativity, you need to expand your horizons. Let’s say you are writing about children’s stories. Expanding is when you start to write about young adult or adults stories. Or romance to sci-fi. Open your mind to possibilities. Try fanfiction website for writing and deviant art for drawing/paint.
