Sitting doing nothing

So, the wife is on a night shift and I've had to fore go kendo. Last night I had a thoroughly dissatisfying brawl with some space elves on Dark Crusade so I feel I should not get back on that horse tonight but I have zero enthusiasm for painting. This is all procrastination mind... I've even got some Milliput so I could finally crack on with the Mycetic Spore and Helion Rain to listen to whilst sculpting/painting.

I've experienced this lethargy many times before. In the creative world this sensation often crops up like a willpower sucking swamp and the only thing to do is wade through it. Even if its only a tiny bit of progress its a little bit further on. And experience tells me that often the other side of it is all downhill. Or I could sit on my ass and do nothing like the guy above ;)


  1. Listened to Helion Rain and did the 50:50 Bonewhite/white highlight on the Terminators. Drilled out the storm bolters and added Mechrite red to all the bits that need it. Not such a sticky swamp after all, but we'll see how long it lasts...

  2. I often find that I have so many varied projects on the go that if my enthusiasm for one seems at a low, I just spend some time on another project, or do some research for another project.
    I normally find that my energy perks back up once I've taken a break. Sometimes my focus needs that break to find its way past an "unsure decision", as I mull it over.
