What is it about this time of year? Do other artists "shut down"? Is this a common problem amongst those who create?
Shortly after the stores begin decorating for the holidays, before the first Christmas carol on the radio......my muse, my desire to create, leaves. Its just GONE. Phoof!
Oh, I try. I try hard. So far I've made the ugly-est Christmas Ball you've ever seen. Followed by a even uglier candle holder, etc, etc. It exhausts me. This may be "Holiday Depression", or just old age and expectations that are far too grand for a grandma .
Sorry about the whining. But I'm feeling "empty".
And I really am wondering if other artists feel the same way.
