I love to procrastinate. Including writing a blog post when I haven’t wanted to write a blog post in ages.
I watch some digital artists on twitch. It’s a different kind of right-brainy skill that is fascinating to watch. Sculptors sculpting is good too. I tried watching writers, but it’s not as interesting.
Anyway, one of the artists I follow is Oabnormal and he talks constantly while drawing. He’s really engaged with the people watching him do art. I know I want to one day commission his work. A cover would be awesome.
Someone asked him how he gets through artist’s block. His response (paraphrased) was that he pushes through.
“Think about sitting down and starting.” ~ Oabnormal today at 4ish Pacific Time.
So right now. I’m thinking about sitting down and starting. Don’t think of the size of the project, think of starting it. A character sketch. A world-building exercise. The start of a scene.
Just start it.
