Why can I never stay motivated to drawing? I enjoy it, I'd get shiny things from doing it (see previous post), so why can't I just sit my arse down and do it?? There's always something else to be doing, or I'm tired or a myriad of other excuses. Even when I really don't *have* any other excuses. Maybe it's just a fear of being inadequate or something. Who knows. Maybe I'll never know.

I say this every time...I'd like to draw more. Doesn't seem to matter that I say it every time, or that I'm probably going to say it in my next post (which, after this one, isn't actually going to be due for, year maybe?). Anyone got any tips for motivation? Apparently even a reward system doesn't last very long with me.
  • Mood: Shame
  • Reading: Mogworld
