Don't say that! I write songs since I'm 12 or something, sure, if I listen to them now most of it is unusable, badly played, and I really didn't have a clue what the hell I was doing there, but I learned an awful lot from writing my own harmonies, melodies and rhythms.
Keep in mind what you practice for: you learn your playing technique so you're able to realize all the stuff going on in your head
, never vice versa!
In other words, an instrument is always just means of showing other people the music playing inside of you.
If there's no music playing inside of you, listen to the music other people play, make a trip to the sea or the mountains, watch a nice sunrise, do whatever inspires you
If there's music playing inside of you and you can't translate it to your instrument, practice
It's the eternal circle of music!
Hahaha, now I feel like the monkey guy from Lion King:
