Do you ever find yourself saying/thinking "when this deadline/project/visit/holiday is finished, I'll get back into drawing/studying Japanese/painting?
And struggling with these thoughts that you're not really good at art anyway, so why bother?
When that happens, and it happens often, I just have to find a project, and allocate a time-slot in my calendar, and it usually gets done, but at the moment, there seems to be more obstacles. Or my mind isn't in the right place. There always seems to be something else to do.
And yet, I know that drawing makes me happy.
So, I'll just have to pick myself up, choose a pen, and get drawing.
