No creative drive

Hi, I am an inspiring artist. Or I used to be, now i'm more so of a inspiring photographer. That's really my passion. But I don't really have too much time or locations or models, or money with working the schedule I do. That being said I don't want to be working forever. I want to be out and making my own money so I don't have to work.

I would like to draw more so that I can maybe make money like from commish and t-shirts and whatnot just whatever I can get my hands on and be able to make side money to self sustaining money from it to support my photography and life. But the problem is I don't really like to draw, nor am I really inspired in a way to do so.

I've drawn all my life and just recently within the last few years switched to photography. I'm just asking to all the other artists out there for some helpful words of advice and what you do to stay inspired or how you get inspired?

Setting goals is one way to get inspired.

You may just need to change what you draw. If you're becoming passionate about photography, maybe try drawing your own photos.

I don't really force my drive, my mind is always on auto pilot because I honestly love to draw and such,

Inspiration just comes to me whenever i do anything, I've woken up in the middle of the night just because i thought of something I want to draw

If you need to find inspiration though, you could try music, games, walking outside and enjoying the sky/view , whatever lol

You're confusing "inspiring" with "aspiring". You're an aspiring artist, not an inspiring artist. There's nothing inspirational about someone complaining about how they have no motivation.

To point out that you're misusing the word "inspiring", and that the word you're looking for is "aspiring". Or was that unclear?
