I haven't made as much as one webcomic page is WEEKS, and the more I think about it, it tears me apart. I just can't help it even when I want to work on it and I'm only like 10 pages in. Sad

What do you guys do when you have a problem like this?

Depends - are you currently posting online and have a reader base? If not, then maybe just taking some time off would be good for you... help you clear your head and come back to it in a month or two with better skills or something.

If you have a set posting schedule like me, I tend to use various methods to get the drawing done when I'm procrastinating. Shouting at myself, drinking copious amounts of coffee, beer night, forcing the tablet onto my desk and drawing squiggly lines until something sticks...

does shouting at yourself work?

God, yes. Sometimes, my housemates walk in on me shouting random stuff. If it was anyone else doing it, they'd be more concerned.

This is some of my fuel.

Be warned! Once you begin to educate yourself on self-improvement, there is no turning back.
