Lacking Motivation

Posted by Crazymonkey154 - 1 month ago


For the first time in a while, I've lately found I'm not very motivated to animate much. Don't get me wrong; I'll still have something up for Madness Day 2019 (September 22nd), but sometimes I feel like the spark that prompts me to create animations just isn't there as much as I wish it was. This really isn't a pleasant feeling. At least part of it probably comes from being worn out at work and other offline activity. Not sure how or when exactly this rough patch in my creativity will end, though I regardless do know it won't last forever. It's mainly a question of when/how that'll end.

Join the club. Animation is fun and has great results; but it's a drag after a while. One technique I use to stay interested when writing plots is to add perks.

Sometimes when writing I'll add in some clips I've always wanted to see animated or characters of the same.

Most of all don't do it for others, do it for you.
If you're bored making it, it might end up being boring to watch.
That's what happened when I made my last movie that was just for the money and fans.
Reach back and remember what you started animating for, and what really drives you.

Your tips are appreciated. I admittedly was getting bored of something I had in the works since this past February and abandoned it shortly before making this post. The process was a drag and I lost interest in the idea altogether. In retrospect, it probably something I was sticking through more for others than myself. No way am I making that mistake in the future.
