Hard for me to say. Sometimes we struggle with mechanics, but are open for creative influences. We do need to run with the moment. I am not sure that we can force any issue, that is why I advocate a daily routine. My experience is that repeated patterns stabilize the mechanics and give our creative side chances. The daily routine like taking a shower, shaving, becomes minimally invasive to the "part time" musician and offers a reliable base after a short (2-3 month) while.
