If you're like me, your environment plays a big part in your creativity. Some people love being outdoors, some people need a studio filled with music, and others might need the interaction of a live audience. Sometimes, you might need to stop the input from the outside world and find your zone in the stillness. Finding out what best facilitates your creativity will open all kinds of doors for you. (Or keep them shut, if that's your preference)
I set up at the art show Saturday. While I had a good time networking and all, I actually ended up selling only two sketches. The concept was good. The execution left something to be desired. People don't want to enter a bar to buy things (that aren't nibbles and drinks), and the music was so loud that you couldn't discuss anything with any of the sellers. But on a positive note, I did get to meet another crafter who follows my art business Instagram. (@chollaflowerstudios) it's always good to put a face and a handshake to fellow artists and business folk. So while I enjoyed it, it was a learning experience that it was not the best environment for me to sell my artwork.
Trial and error is the best way to find out what does work best. If something doesn't facilitate your creativity, try something else and know you've at least eliminated that which doesn't help. It's all a part of the process.
