Gina has just finished two very quiet Open Studios weekends and has now learned that her summer schools won’t run this year, leaving her uncertain about the future.

I’ve been feeling a bit flat and uninspired, probably due to an insanely busy first half of the year and a desperate need for my summer camping holiday!

As usual, I have lots of ideas for things I could do, but not quite enough motivation to pursue any of them. Knowing I’m going away very soon doesn’t help, as my mind is elsewhere – definitely out of the studio. But I can’t keep going like this: when I get back, I need a plan – and a sustainable one this time. I definitely need to move forward, but in which direction?

So how do we both decide what to do next? What do we want to do?
