But I was wondering if there are any other writers out there? I'm trying to fill the gap in my heart after retiring Jake. I'm trying to do that with writing and drawing. The drawing is coming along but the writing is not. I keep finding myself getting stuck and was wondering if other people had tips? I would love to be able to find someone who would like to read and critique and was wondering if someone would want to set up a trade for critique and motivation. I've tried on artists forums but honestly I can't get anyone willing to help me out.
A while ago I had someone that was editing and critiquing and giving me tips and it really kept me going. Then I lost contact with them and I slowly got frustrated and stopped what I was working on.
Now I have several projects that barely get started before I get stuck. I need motivation I'm just not sure how to go about it.
How do you guys set up and build? What do you do when you're stuck?
