The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

I said I'd try to conquer dryspells for 2013, but I've gone 2 months without posting anything for you guys. Which is probably my quest for commissions on this site has been utterly fruitless.

Such a mess. I haven't been this bad since 2009. Maybe I've just run out of ideas or something. I still have that story in the works but it goes untouched for weeks at a time. Plus I'm sorta getting stretched thin between some obligations with various groups of friends and other shit such as job-hunting and whatnot. But in the end, I'm just not inspired. I've gotten nothing productive done in weeks, and it's pissing me off. Things I do draw are unsatisfactory, so I scrap them. I might just break down and draw some old shit so I can say I did.

But yeah, just trying to reconfirm my continuing existence.

I'm sorry man. I know how it feels to not post art for awhile. It sucks, it really does. I think I know what your problem is. Maybe you've forgotten why you started doing this in the first place. I mean, started writing stories and doing artwork and such. It's happened to me before, and after thinking long and hard about why I even started doing this in the first place, I found that I had gotten my motivation back. I think what you need to do is try to remember what made you want to do this in the first place, and use that to motivate you. I know it's not the best advice, but I hope it helps at least a little.
