Art forum, what's the best way to fight procrastination?
I just can't get anything done. I tell myself "Today I'm working on this". But I never do. I get to my tablet, and don't do anything. I know this will have an obvious answer, but whatever.
Get started. Don't start later, don't start after you have read that article. Once you realize you should be doing something, start it IMMEDIATELY. Smack yourself in the face if you have to and get to it! Starting something is harder than keeping going.
Timers can be your friends. Partition your time as drawing and entertainment. Stick to it. When the timer says it's drawing time, you OBEY. You start drawing. It's not even so bad when you don't finish drawing, as long as you have started.
