Artistically bankrupt. Also known as writer’s block for writers, screenwriters, and poets. Also known as having no clue what to do for painters, singers, dancers, etc.
What can you do about it? I mean, you stare at a blank page for so long that your head gets dizzy and still nothing good happens. You may write a few sentences but soon delete them.
Well.. just stop. Yeah, stop. No, no, I mean it. Stop. Now, go out and live life. I know it sounds like a scary thing to do, but you must. It’s for your art. Go out there and live. Meet new people, do exciting stuff. Fall in love, be a douchebag, get dumped, get your heart broken, then write about that. Or sing about it. Or paint your pain away.
This is the thing.
Consuming art is a way to escape reality.
Creating art is a way to recreate reality, give it a different meaning, or simply immortalize it.
Regardless, you must spend some time in this world, in the real world, doing stuff, for this whole artist thing to work.
Sorry, there’s no way to go around it.
So go out there and have fun. Or at least try to.
