It's tough if you live in an uninteresting place. I know, I did for a number of years, and it's hard to motivate yourself and take pictures.
Pictures of what?
I started doing some still life and really enjoyed it, but it's not the answer for me.
To be honest, I think if possible, you're going to have to plan a day or a weekend away on a fairly regular basis. It's what worked for me, and it was a feeling of freedom, and encouraging to be in a situation that was almost purely for photography. Not to visit cousin Agnes and squeeze in a few minutes if you can, but to go somewhere just to explore it photographically. I used to go in the off seasons, because the place is probably very much the same in appearance, with lower prices and less crowds.
It doesn't have to be a trans-Atlantic flight, you'll be amazed at what you'll find a couple of hours down the road.
