You Vs You by StephenMcCranie You Vs You by StephenMcCranie
Do you ever feel like you have to wage war with yourself to get anything done? What we need is a peace treaty with ourselves.

This comics essay is from a book called Brick by Brick, which I am now raising money to self publish on Kickstarter! Buy a digital copy for only $5! Please take a look!

This is such a wonderful point, and I can't thank you enough for the truth set in the words.
Due to the fact that people should treat themselves with a little more cooperation, else they won't see the reason to try. 
And the reason some don't feel like trying is because people don't believe the prize remedies the punishment.
Thank you for making this. :)

I know this feeling well, its strange how we can be the wall that stops us from doing what we want. but the hard part is to stop and think why or what do I really need. this is a great reminder that sometimes we just have to stop and look inside are selves every now and then. thanks a lot, I really needed this.Clap +fav

reading this I feel like I get it but at the same time I don't.
I'm always like 'I've got to do this' in regards to my writings
but then I never do it, even if I have it written down on a note :/

I know what you mean-- it's hard to put these principles into practice. What do you think is keeping you from writing? Is that something you truly want to do?

:iconcoooool123:
coooool123 Featured By Owner Nov 11, 2013  Student Traditional Artist

well... It's more my art that holds me back. I never draw unless I have motivation and something to draw. I know I need to practice but I can't just DRAW I need something in my mind.

but I do enjoy writing ^^ incredibly so! It is something I really do want to do.

it's just getting enough motivation to write. motivation seems to be the determining factor for me.

I understand that. Perhaps you could start a project-- like a small webcomic or drawing series or copying your favorite artists-- something that will encourage you to make things. Find what's fun! Good luck to you!

I dunno, ha ha. Is the size of your projects intimidating you? Or are your projects just not fun?

How true. Maybe I can use this comic to help with my procrastination streak that constantly plagues me. After all, I always felt unsatisfied with how I manage to complete my tasks. + Fav.
