No hay nada más frustrante que un artist block y para mí no hay nada más frustrante que leer eso de alguien más.
Sé que deben haber otros tuts con cómo salir de un artist block, así que simplemente me basaré en cómo pueden cazar la inspiración, estén bloqueados o no, pero primero deben responder a la pregunta:
¿Me satisface lo que hago?
Si están bloqueados es porque necesitan simplemente un cambio de aires, uno se aburre hasta de lo que más le gusta hacer. Ahora, si están bloqueados tipo "nada me sale" o "no puedo hacer nada" y el cambio de aires no es una idea a aceptar, lo tomaría como que son esclavos de lo que hacen y por eso tanto su imaginación como su cuerpo (el "plasmador" de obras) se rebelan. Pongan atención a sus estados y no vayan en su contra, eso empeora el caso. Si ya no pueden dibujar, escriban, si no escriben, lean, vean películas, hagan deporte, jueguen videojue

She raised her palms to the sky, fingers spread, and sunk her toes into the earth. Heat-filled particles of light warmed her face and the moist cool matter softened her toes. This was life and she relished in its glory.
Nature was her mother and the ruler of the cosmos was her father. She imagined herself as a tree, her feet diving down into the rich folds of the earth, planting their roots, while her fingers extended to the heavens forming into a million branches. Leaves and flowers exploded from her branches as they begged for the gift of light from the sun.
She walked in beauty. From where she stood, a gathering of red poppies reached to her gently brushing against her calf, begging to feel her touch. She leaned forward caressing the petals with the tips of her fingers and the flowers gently kissed her face in return. She laughed. She had always imagined that poppies would make for extremely faithful friends, providing every comfort and need in times of despair, but they would alway

The next day you were pretty enthusiastic about coming to school. You certainly weren’t scared of the freshman beat down anymore, considering the fact that Dave had beat them up for you. Even though you didn’t expect Dave to protect you forever, you at least knew the seniors were actually capable of being hurt just as much as you were. You thought they were some kind of invincible being.
Karkat, of course, had scolded you the entire way home about even interacting with Dave Strider… well that, and the ‘bright red panties’ remark. You wished Karkat could laugh about stuff once in a while with you.
“If I see you talking to him today, so help me gog I will rip both of your heads off and screw them on backwards!” Karkat cried at you before you had left him in the morning. In 2nd period, however, you figured you could just forget what he said and talk to Dave anyways. You had noticed him sitting with John the d

Sherlock was already dressed and sitting in his armchair, reading, when John came downstairs for breakfast.
"How long have you been awake then?" John called from the kitchen, not even glancing in the detective's direction. Sherlock peered at the robed man over the top of his book and turned the page nonchalantly.
Sherlock's ears picked up the tell-tale chink of the kettle turning on before John started rummaging through the fridge for something even remotely edible.
"Sherlock, what happened to the fruit I bought yesterday?"
"I let Mrs Hudson use them for a pie she was making,"
John shut the refrigerator door with a snap and squeezed his eyes shut in silent frustration.
"So much for breakfast."
"There's a tub of cream cheese on the top shelf of the fridge,"
"Yeah, and would you consume an entire tub of cream cheese plain for breakfast?"
John just shook his head and turned the kettle off, tipping scalding hot liquid into his mug as he heard Sherlock turn

"[name] come away from that window and help set the tree please." Your mother tapped your shoulder gently as she walked passed you, smiling fondly.
Doing as asked, you pulled yourself away from the beautiful scenery and helped prepare the house for Christmas. Your family came together over the holidays, and by that you meant your aunt and uncles and your Nanna, who was known to be... Slightly eccentric. It was no secret however that you were her favourite grandchild, and you loved listening to her whimsical stories.

You crossed your arms, stomping a foot firmly on the ground. "Tell me, Loki! At this point, I think I get it, I just want you to tell me."
His expression went from pleading to almost offended. "If you think you have any idea what Lynda and I have been through together, you can think again. Now if you really don't want to fight alongside me, that is perfectly okay, I can just leave you in that room and steal Lynda's vortex manipulator to make certain you won't get out and do something stupid to hurt yourself--"

The vampire and the adventurers arrived at the doors of the candy castle. Marshall Lee's face was twisted in a scowl. Fionna, on the other hand, was excited. She knocked on the big doors and stood back. They opened to reveal the Gumball Prince already waiting.
"Welcome Fionna and Cake! So nice to see you! I've been waiting and-- oh. You brought him?" Prince Gumball frowned at the sight of Marshall, who stuck out his tongue.
"Well well, nevermind that, come in!" He lead them to a room where there was a chalkboard and a few desks.
"Now, the other day Fionna you told me you would like to learn the basics of math, so I've prepared some lessons for you." Gumball took some papers out of a drawer and walked over to the chalkboard.
"Today I'll be teaching you the basics of addition, in which you will--"

"Loki?" said Lynda, suddenly emerging from her room a few yards down the hall.
Loki looked from her to Jack, eyes wide. "What are you doing? Go hide before she sees you!"
"Don't need to," said Jack, staying put and perfectly calm, though not looking at Lynda. "Just pretend like you're not talking to me."
What? "But what's going...what do we talk about?" You panicked a little, trying to think up some sort of casual conversation, when suddenly Loki caught you by the lips, pinning you to the wall and kissing you passionately.
"Mmfh!" After a moment of shock, you eagerly kissed back, holding his head in your hands and wrapping a leg around his waist, drawing him closer. It didn't take long for your lips and tongues to battle back and forth, the both of you moaning and quickly getting caught up in your actions. You almost forgot about the handsome man and Lynda and why you were so confused.

You craned your neck around a sickly bush to see the still surreal sight of the charred remains of your used-to-be-home. The air smelled of stale ashes and burned wood and the rest of the neighborhood wasn't much better. It happened four days ago, after only a few precious mornings of you waking up in your own bed.
Why did you keep returning to this street? It was only going to make you sad. Sick. Angry.
Dragons, flipping dragons. Demons, demon dragons, that's the best way you could describe the beasts with the bloodred scales acting as shining maille over their bulking muscles. The ashen-grey, splintering claws and corkscrewed horns, the blazing fire from their snarled snouts that matched the fiery pits of their eyes. The horrors, the massive terrors...and there were far too many of them.
Crouched behind the dead, black bush, you tried to hold yourself back but from what? You had cried enough all week; out of anger, frustration, madness, te

Loki granted you a half-hearted smile, walking to one of the walls of the training room. "Good, great job," he congratulated blandly. He touched a few of the bricks and they vanished in a whirl, allowing bright light to pour over the floor. You blinked at the brightness. "So you can play with your own body. That will not get you anywhere."
"Humans haven't nearly enough energy," he explained. "So they need to learn to draw from other sources. A good source is sunlight."
"Wait," you said, "But...we're underground."
"Actually it's the Underground, we're not under the crust of the earth..."
"And we're downstairs."
He nodded toward the window and you looked out and sure enough, it was a sun. Perhaps it was a bit too orange to be your sun, but it was definitely a sun, as you could tell from the swimming black dots in your vision when you looked away. "Ow. How is...?"
Dave x Reader - Bodyguard - Chapter SevenYou were upset when you walked into the lunchroom. It’s not like you wanted a huge fist dent in your locker, or some crazy girl thinking that you’re trying to steal her supposed ‘cool kid boyfriend’. It’s not like it was your fault that Dave and Karkat had made a deal so that you could be protected from the older kids.

You took a seat next to Karkat. You would’ve sat with John and Dave, but you were afraid that Vriska would blow up again or something. As you opened your lunch box to pull out your food, you decided to ask everyone something. “Do you guess know who that Vriska girl is?”
Karkat scoffed. “Oh, she’s only the biggest nook stain on the entire planet. She’s always fucking with people and their business for some unknown reason.”

Bitter [Loki x Reader (pt 17)]You spent the next morning adjusting quickly to Stark Tower. From what you had learned in being abducted by Loki, you had no idea, really, how long your time would be in a place. You also needed to expect that anything would happen. Of course, Stark Tower was a lot milder than the Underground. The top few floors had become the Avengers Headquarters. And you had made yourself right at home, much to the discomfort of Dr. Banner and Captain Rogers. Tony seemed pleased and even amused by it, and you almost had a complete layout of the top two floors by the time you were offered lunch. Steve had decided to cook something, so all the Avengers felt compelled to try it. Rather, they were all familiar with Steve's cooking and would not pass up such a delightful opportunity. But you couldn't really taste the dish; you were hardly hungry. You picked at the food, like Natasha, who seemed to have a habit of always eating cautiously.

"Arghh, what horrible day," groaned Fionna. She trudged along the path to her tree house. The sky was dark, the sun was setting really quickly. On her back she carried some books in her pack Cake had requested she find. She had spent all day trying to find them, searching about every library in the land of Ooo.
She kicked at little pebbles as she walked. Some squirrels were chittering in the trees, but Fionna secretly wished they would shut up, for she was beginning to have a head ache. She stopped at a tree stump on the side of the path and sat down, rubbing her temples. She tried to meditate. Her mind began to clear, and the pain in her head began to dull. She got up again and was about to continue when she noticed something.
Everything was dead silent.
She felt a chill go down her spine, a she sensed she wasn't alone. Something was behind her. She gulped and pulled out her sword, and slowly turned around.

“Sherlock, where are we going?”
John Watson struggled to catch his breath as he rushed behind the shadow of his tall friend, Sherlock Holmes. He was walking at an unusually fast pace, and with his long legs poor John just couldn’t keep up.
“Mycroft said that someone wanted to see us.”
John looked up, surprised, his eyes wide.
“And we’re going because-?”
He shook his head, stopping himself. If Sherlock was listening to something that Mycroft had requested, then it had to have been something more intriguing that had compelled him to actually go.
Suddenly, Sherlock stopped, and John bumped hard into his back, almost propelling himself to the sidewalk. He balanced himself, rubbing his nose and mumbling under his breath.
“Here we are.”
They had stopped in front of a particularly plain looking house, but when John looked around the house, he saw, that in reality, it was almost like a small extension of Buckingham Palace. The Palace

Beth sat before the fireplace in her bedroom, her feet tucked beneath her and a blanket wrapped around her shoulders. She was still trembling after all that had happened, and though she tried to breath evenly, her heartbeat wouldn’t slow even a little.
Garrett had disappeared several hours before with an unconscious Fiona in his arms and a shaken, bleary eyed Mr. Gibbs close at his side.
Beth had asked to help, wanting to be close by when Fiona woke, but both men had insisted that she too needed to rest after her ordeal, and so she had been left with no other choice but to wait anxiously in her bedroom for word of Fiona’s condition.
In an effort to keep her mind off of her worry over Fiona, she busied herself by removing the bandages from her arm and leg.
“Strange,” she murmured when the bandages fell away. Not a scratch marred her pale skin, and there were no scars. To anyone else, it would appear

"It isn't the end, we shall meet again," he promised, petting the back of your hair.
"Alright, big boy, let go so the rest of us can say g'bye," Tony said, a hand on your shoulder. You stood up and shook your head, holding open your arms for Tony but he waved you off to Steve. "I'm driving you there. We can say goodbye later, whatever."
Steve stood and gave you a nod, smiling fondly. Looked like it would be handshakes or salutes with him, but then you caught him chewing his lower lip, a spark of sadness in his eyes and you almost stumbled into a hug. He hesitated but lowered his arms around you and hugged back--a little stiffly, but it was still a hug.
When he let go, Virginia stood and smiled and you immediately headed for the elevator, followed by Tony.
