I have a theory about this. You don't get ideas from writing. You get ideas from getting out & doing things. Then ideas pop into your head. That's why a lot of writers wrote less during the pandemic. No getting out and colliding with interesting little nuggets of new experiences. I think you'll be OK if you take a little break to putter around doing other things.
