Take heart, that can be a project in itself.

I say that creative block doesn’t happen to me, but there are still times when I feel sick to my boots with my work and get stuck that way. When it happens, that usually means something’s wrong with it which I’m not getting; the work just looks overblown, overstated, obvious and stale and I just don't want to do it any more.
Thinking about it, I can identify three main causes for getting stuck:
1. Wrong direction
3. The inner head-critic
I have absolutely no information as to how others get stuck and am quite unqualified to write on the subject, but if just singling out those three particular bogeymen is of any help to you, I’m glad. And soon I might do a show-and-tell on how I wriggle out of it and keep going - if it helps anyone, it’s my pleasure.
