Maybe it's the time of year?  This time last year I went through a dry spell, and now I'm in another one.  Until today I hadn't uploaded a fractal piece since December.  Not sure when the next one will be either!  Maybe I'll go back to reading books!  :lol:

I know how you feel. I've uploaded just one paltry Apo this year. Now, I can't take my own advice (It's one of those "I wouldn't join a club that would have me as a member" type of things.) but, I think you should go way back to earlier works when you weren't so skilled and try to redo them. You might find that now you have a better idea of what to do. It's worth a shot. :D

Thanks very much - that's a great idea indeed!

Maybe trying MB3D? It seems it is one of the few programs you are not using and it is improving almost daily.
:hug:

Thanks! I've taken a look at M3D and it is moving along in leaps and bounds - I've just never been able to work up the same kind of enthusiasm for 3D as I used to have for 2D. But what some people have done with M3D is amazing!

Well, in any event I hope you find your inspiration somewhere!

:) You can do both! A Winter slowdown is natural and in it's own way restorative. I rely on curiousity - what would happen if...?.

from the movie Airplane! :

Steve McCroskey: Johnny, what can you make out of this?
[Hands him the weather briefing]
Johnny: This? Why, I can make a hat or a brooch or a pterodactyl...

;)

Good to see you back! :heart:

Ouch. That's rough, PH. The good news is it is a fairly normal experience. And you'll be back in business very soon!! Take care!!

Thanks Mark - I hope so! I'm actually not as gloomy as the emoticon might suggest - we'll see what happens!
