Sign up for a regular activity that you can't get out of. Seriously! Activity breeds activity: if you're doing one thing, you're automatically more inclined to tackle other things as well (hence the 'best way to get something done is to tell a busy person to do it'). So sign up for an extracurricular art class, or do volunteer work, or get a part-time job if you don't have one already. When I had the feeling that there was so much to do but I just did none of it (despite being unemployed and having loads of free time because there's only so many jobs in any given week you can reply to) I volunteered to do research for a government organisation (which also happens to look good on my cv). Now I am A) in an active mindset and B) as I have less free time, the free time I do have becomes that much more precious! Good luck getting motivated again, these things just go in ups and downs I think.

I'm in a rut
I always question the validity of whether or not someone truly wants to do something when they say this. I have been stuck at certain times, but it was always that I didn't want to abandon what I was doing. I have an intense need to try and make my compositions work.
