I sat in my drawing pad, trying my best to get the picture right. Somethings missing. Gah! This is hopeless. Negative thoughts kept entering my head as I crushed the paper and threw it over my head. I sighed in frustration as I grabbed a new piece of paper. My pencil was nearly out of lead, so I had to refill it. I sketched the same drawing again, but it keeps leading me into an art block. Why is this happening to me? I see the picture in my head, so why is it not turning out right when I draw it?
