Note to self: There will be times when you feel like a complete hack. When all the art (if you can call it that) that comes out of you is a waste of time and a bunch of horse hockey. What to do in that case: Leave. The. Studio. IMMEDIATELY.

What not to do: Break the window blinds. Cry till you can barely see out the slits you were given for eyes.

Remedy: Movies. Time. The bookstore. A cup of coffee away from the studio.

Next day: the hack will be gone and you can move on. Then work your ass off to still make your deadline.
