...where the only reason you're blocked is that there are just too many projects vying for your attention?
That's exactly my problem right now.
-I have an art project that was actually a school assignment, but it's turned out to be really complicated and I keep getting nagged to do it, even though I really don't know what to do to move forward with it.
-I have a few commissions, a couple actually really big ones, that I should be working on because hey, who doesn't like to earn money making cool things? And some of the people I'm doing them for have been waiting a while, though thankfully they've been patient with me.
-I've got some things to draw for people, and I'd like to be able to make those look halfway cool.
-I'd like to draw for myself! New dinosaur stuff, dragons, even perhaps some ponies or Pokemon if I think of things for that.
When I try to just relax, try to clear my head and do something fun, I get that voice in the back of my head, "What are you doing drawing silly fanart you probably won't post anyway? You should be working on this other thing instead, it's more important."
"But voice, I can't work on that, I don't know what to do. But I definitely shouldn't be drawing anything else right now, not when the priority is the thing I'm stuck on."
"Oh. Well then... I guess we just do nothing, 'cause I don't know what to do either."
And so it goes. Nothing ends up getting done because I can't decide what to do. It's true, I'll get chewed out for trying to draw something for fun, but then on top of the problems I encounter with the art itself, when I try to work on the things that are 'top priority', I get ceaselessly interrupted. So much for any train of thought I had! :/
I don't like being so negative, but I've nearly lost my patience with this situation. I know chances are small, but I'm hoping some of you might have an idea of the best course of action. Clearly trying to do things by myself hasn't worked. -_-;
