Lesson #913 - Writer's Block, Part II

The last two nights I've had terrible writer's block, so I finally tried to analyze it earlier today. The real kicker in that equation is the personal creativity constant. After all, it's nice when you can produce some good ideas, but when you just start churning out terrible idea after terrible idea, inspiration looks less and less likely.

I mean, I spent fifteen minutes trying to figure out how to center a comic around Rockall, an uninhabited island in the North Atlantic. And the ideas kept getting worse from there. Inspiration is a fickle mistress.
