Motivation Blues

As deadlines for the super secret comic project loom I am finding it hard to actually sit down and concentrate on getting it done. I’ll get home and think to myself, ‘oh I’ll just check my email / flip on the TV / read this comic I have read 10 times already first, and then I’ll get started’ and before I know it 3 hours have passed and I’m ready to fall asleep without ever touching pencil to paper.

It’s infuriating, and it means that I spend the whole next day at work wishing I could get home and catch up on the work I missed out on the previous night – only by the time I actually do get home I just want to slouch in front of the TV all over again. At the moment I am just about on schedule – I have about 2 and a half weeks to produce the first 3 episodes, and I have half an episode done, but I have had weeks and weeks to work on it and I should be much further ahead than this. I am my own worst enemy.

I think I need to start practicing yoga so I can learn to kick myself up my own backside.
