So, my Inspiration went to buy cigarettes.

I knew what was going on, since my Inspiration doesn't smoke, so, when it didn't come back as I expected, I decided to send my Will to Draw looking for it in order to bring it back to me.
It turned out to be a bad idea, since I never saw either of them again.
It's about a month now.

No need to mention how much I could use their help right now. 
I tried to do things without them, but it didn't really work out... Of course I can still draw, it's not like one can lose the ability to do something when head traumas are not involved. Problem is, I'd rather wash dishes or spend the whole morning on the couch with my dog as a blanket than draw.
I know what people like to say in this cases... 
"It's not art block, it's just you being lazy"
Yeah right, I'm so lazy I'd rather clean the whole house or stare the wall the whole day than do what I love the most. You're a genius, my problem is solved now, thanks.
"Then keep drawing anyway!" 
I did it. Ironically, they even gave me a DD for what I did while trying to force me to draw anyway. 
Did Inspiration and Will come back after that? 
Sadly no. If possible, I think it even worsened the situation, like "look at her, getting praised for a work she was going to throw away and still complaining she has art block, go waste someone else's time"...

Truth is, there seems to be no point trying to lure them with insults or commiseration. 
I just need to wait. 
I'll be there, eating chocolate while snuggling on the couch with my dog, and at some point they'll be too cold and too hungry to resist and they'll come back to me. 

Because I have chocolate. 
And a huge, fluffy dog.

Hey, you know what you should do? Take the extra time to watch those series, shows and films or read those books you've been meaning to for a while. Everybody's got a "to-watch" or "to-read" list they can hardly come back to because they lack the time. Just spend some extra time watching great shows and getting into awesome stories, not only because they're a great place to find your inspiration again, because doing something you like is always enjoyable and that's enough reason to do it already.

Take your time off and enjoy it!

(I love that lol)
However you manage to get yourself back into your groove, that sounds like a good start. Ignore everyone who's complaining about it, it's not their problem to make judgments on. Do what you want to do. :)

*hugs* Speaking more as a writer - take the time to try something new! Try something you never thought you would, and even if it doesn't work out, at least you tried and learned something from it! Or, do something completely unrelated! Or eat chocolate! Or even, make chocolate! :P
But whatever you feel like doing right now - do it, and don't feel bad about not drawing, even though one of the hardest things sometimes can be /not/ to draw. :D

Staying at home and doing the same thing over and over will not help. You gotta go out, see the world. whether thats online or offline. You can wait for inspiration to come to you, but that might take years, but if you go outside, go for a walk or watch a bunch of movies. Maybe something will pop up, idk, Im just a crappy writer with writers block. But the best inspiration Ive had was from  outside sources.

Hey girl!  I wish your inspiration come back soon. Its so hard to work without it, things come out but take more or starts to work in a different way than the usual x__X

I'm going to give you some suggestions to help you but I'm not sure if the weather around this time helps, but if so why not try :) ?  For me when I'm passing for a period like this I try to go out for some place different from where I work always bringing music with me. Top first place that helps me much is the beach. Others are woods, plazas, malls and theaters (cinema). Bicycle walk, any green areas, or eat in a place you never went before with friends. Going to the stationery, visiting old places from my life does help too sometimes. In overall going to any place that is different from the place I work helps a lot. Taking of the work landscape from my eyes and replacing it for sometime with other place helps me.
Hope I could help a bit :)

Now I'm in need of making the company who provides me internet cry some blood tears, because it have been a hell here to work with this unstable...thing lol. Can't even call it internet connection anymore OTL

You know, they're really there in the room with you. They've just changed their form enough that it's difficult to see them. Relax, chill and enjoy. You'll experience or do something that will give you a different perspective and then ... viola! You'll be able to see them again! Because they are yours and they never really leave. Promise=D
