This is one thing all artists or would-be-artists (some very talented people have a hard time referring to themselves as artists. Get over it, you’re brilliant!!) really should have. The trusty Inspiration Board. A small bulletin board or a massive wall poked with a million little holes from your thumb tacks will do. Anything you see that inspires you i.e. magazine rip-outs, photos, drawings, clipart, writings, poems, anything, goes up on this wall. You need to be able to look at it everyday so things can click for you. Sometimes one thing alone won’t create a spark but once it’s on the wall and it happens to be near something else, together they start a fire and your mind starts creating a piece. If you don’t already have one, start one. You’ll see!
