The webcomics artists I admire have stocked their stores for the holidays. These people whom I deeply respect are ready. They’ve been planning. As far as I can tell, they’ve been planning for this moment since before the last holiday season. Many of them support themselves financially with these sales. They have for years. They have to plan.
So, perhaps all I lack is motivation built up over a period of time?
I remain unconvinced that this is an element that I lack. I remain unconvinced that this is the only possible element that I lack.
But now occurred to me that I planned poorly for the holiday item I thought I would have for the last holiday, Halloween. Of course, I think I came up with the idea for the shirt applique in September, when I bought these fabrics.
I am right now planning on having that prototype up by next September. Here’s hoping.
