I hate it when that happens.

So lately I’ve been having trouble keeping myself motivated. See, cartooning doesn’t come naturally to me. I’m not one of those artists that’s all “this is the all-consuming drive in my life and I must be drawing cartoons at all times.” It’s, uh, work, actually. I tend to approach Photoshop with a bit of dread. And then there’s all the ancillary stuff to running a webcomic: making an attractive website, making a functional website, advertising, keeping up with social media, et cetera. Frankly, it’s a bit draining. I’d much rather just goof off and eat candy.

I mention this not to invoke pity, but rather because I have a question. I’m sure you’ve got something like that in your life. How do you stay motivated?
