Do you ever have a random burst of "OMG I CANT DRAW!!!"? Cause I feel like I'm having one right now... I'm working on like 5 things and I'm not too happy with any of them...

Not Artist's block, cause then I wouldn't have ideas, either. Except I have a billion things I wanna draw, and I start drawing them, but halfway through I decide that it sucks... And it really does look a little too crappy...

Any advice on what to do??

This happens to me all the time! SO annoying. All I can ever do is wait them out... it's way worse than artist's block, because then all you have to do is get inspired, and with internet that's fairly easy. With this, it just makes everything you do look like sh*t. 

But anyway.

Good luck! Hope it stops soon. And good book choice, by the way- I LOVE John  Green.

I get them all the fucking time! What I usually do then is read a manga because then I am both inspired and I get back everything I learned from them about face angles, backgrounds, and stuff like that. So, my advice to you, is read a manga when you get those times of forgetting how to draw.

Keep trying?
I dunno, that's what I do. Mine don't look to good either.

I'm not sure about drawing, but I guess the same ever happened to me when I write. It usually happens when I forced or rushed my writing. And then by the half-way I'd feel, "Oh come on, where's my glory? Why is this felt so suck?"

Err, suggestion...? Um... Well, everyone handle their art differently, you know. Some people can work on their art anytime anywhere, while the other need the fitting mood and condition to work out something satisfyingly (that's me :P). So, if it's me, I'll firstly spoil myself or wait until I felt damned then continue on. Or, you can keep trying and repeating until you get something satisfying.

I sometimes feel the same thing when I'm writing, that's why the chapter are taking so long :( I can work anywhere and anytime, so usually my surroundings aren't a problem..

spoiling myself... Hmm... Yes.
