As a Master’s degree drop out too intimidated to do a 120 page paper….lets just say i can relate to this.

Yeah, got that. I’m such genius that I have a very hard time getting out of bed in the morning now and then.

Before PTSD destroyed my life, including my MS pursuits, a 120 page paper in my science discipline wasn’t the biggest deal in the world. But now… Yeah, I’m right there with you, Kojima World Order.

I recognize a lot of this!

Artist’s life, musician’s life, anyone’s life where they can possibly compare themselves to others. Sucks major balls. (Musician here)

Substitute a keyboard and screen for the pen and paper and you have my day.

And even when you do get inspired and accomplish something artistic, you only see the mistakes you made and can’t understand why anyone would like it.
I really like this character. Even though I am not artistic, musical, or otherwise creative I still find this character is someone I can relate too. Thanks Clay!

This character is ending up to be the more anxiety-ridden of all the characters. She is quite popular when people ask for sketches of depcom characters.

This one really spoke to me. Feel like this far too often.

Yup, haven’t drawn in months, and the longer I go, the harder it is to pick back up again.

Can relate to this so well. She even resembles me physically. Somewhat. Haven’t drawn something in months. Not with “my heart in it”, anyway. Haven’t touched my violin. Writing something – not creative writing but even an essay as a homework – seems an enormous task. Everything is a blank. Creativity got sucked into a deep, dark black hole.
January 16, 2017 at 12:18 am
Yeah, that’s pretty much my creative process all on display, right there…
January 17, 2017 at 5:55 am
I stopped writing because I felt like this. It’s been 2 years now. Let’s hope I’m able to go back writing someday.

I draw a big cock picture. It made me smile. Sometimes it’s the little things that pull you through.
January 17, 2017 at 2:28 pm
I can totally relate: especially when I look at my old stuff.

Yep, this one pretty much nails it.

I experienced something like this before. I’m not very good at drawing but I really wanted to win this special shirt for my friend who was also depressed.
I had to work on one frame each day and I have like 8 frames planned. Yet I think I gave up for a million times on each frame. I had to stay back at work just to be motivated enough to finish the frame of the day.
Turns out, I lost the art contest but won the shirt through a livestream. Now the shirt is en route to my friend’s home 🙂 pretty deserving if I’d say it.

That is an awesome story. Congratulations and thanks for sharing!

When it comes to my creativity, this is exactly where I am for the last few years…
…sometimes, I think it’s getting worse…

Wow, so me. Stopped creating years ago. Wanted to study arts. Thanks depression! 🖤
