Headed out to Vermont Comic Con this weekend in Burlington, VT --my first-ever comic con in the state that gave birth to me! (Yes folks, I am a native of the Green Mountain state by the only criteria that truly counts.) Commissions are being taken; drop by my table and let's talk shop! Don't miss your chance to also meet illustration legends like Ken Kelly, Mark McKenna, and Vermont native Cliff Rathburn! Bring the little ones; there'll be plenty of things for them to do thanks to the talent and effort of Emily Drouin of KidsCon New England fame. Should be a magical time.

In just about 3 weeks, I'll be appearing at MASSive Comic Con on June 25-26 in Worcester, Mass --my only Massachusetts con appearance for the year 2016. So swing on by my table and talk nerdiness with me! We can kick around all things Marvel, all things DC, all things indie, and all things MONITOR'S GUILD. And I'll (of course) draw you something superheroic! See you there!

May The Fourth Be With You, Happy Cinco de Mayo, and blessed Free Comic Book Day!

Confirmed convention appearances for 2016! Come see me at MASSive Comic Con on June 25-26, Vermont Comic Con on August 27-28, and Granite State Comic Con on September 17-18! More appearances to be announced!

May the Force be with us all!

Dear Hogfather: I want a Burleigh & Stronginthearm Mark VI "piecemaker" catapult with the optional razorwire attachment and a thing in the stock which tells time.

September 14, 2015

And Granite State Comic Con 2015 passes into the history books. Great weekend, some wonderful new contacts forged, some old friendships revivified. Tackled some challenging commissions and sold more than a few copies of THE MONITOR'S GUILD, Book 1. Much praise to the folks at Double Midnight Comics and their legions of volunteer "redshirts" for once again pulling this off!

A collection of mementoes...

While it was of course a delight meeting screen icons like Billy Dee Williams and Noah Hathaway, as an artist one of my more significant moments came when legendary illustrator Paul Ryan took the time to briefly drop by my table and look over my work. In particular he had praise for my inking technique. While something this innocuous may not seem like much to anyone outside of the business, to me it meant the world. Helped to round out an enjoyable weekend and bring (for me, anyway) a happy and satisfying end to con season!

August 31, 2015

My other "home" convention (yes, I actually have two) is only 2 weeks away! Looking forward to seeing Billy Dee Williams, Nick Bradshaw, Dawn Wells, Noah Hathaway, the 501st Legion, and YOU at Granite State Comic Con 2015, September 12-13 in Manchester, New Hampshire! Some all-new prints will be on view at my table, as well as copies of The Monitor's Guild, Book One. See you there!

August 13, 2015

EXCELSIOR! Yes, it pretty much goes without saying that Boston Comic Con 2015 was eight zillion kinds of wonderful. And with barely any time to catch our collective breath, Granite State Comic Con 2015 is now just a month away! See you all in Manchester on September 12-13!

July 10, 2015

45 and still dorky --er, I mean, devastatingly attractive-- as ever.Well, today not only marks a birthday with a "5" on the end, but more importantly it marks the tenth anniversary of the launch of this website! I'm a little stunned when I look back and see how much has happened in that time-frame, both for me personally and also professionally. Later this fall I'll also be marking the twenty-fifth anniversary of my career as a professional illustrator --lots more to come on that subject!

Special thanks to my hosts at Satori Digital Marketing for putting up with me this past decade. I owe so many more thanks to so many more people who've helped me to this point --I'd list them all here, but that would cause your browser to crash, so I'll instead just point you to the Acknowledgements Page of The Monitor's Guild, Book One. If you find your name on that page, then you did have a hand in getting this artist to this milestone, whether you knew it or not!

Have a wonderful summer and I'll see you all in a little less than a month at Boston Comic Con!

July 4, 2015

"...and for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor." Take a moment to re-read this singularly amazing document and reflect upon what it truly means. And why not pick up a copy of The Monitor's Guild, Book One this summer to celebrate the spirit (and the still-unfulfilled promise) of the Revolution?

May 3, 2015

Double Midnight ComicsWhat an amazing day! Great fans, great costuming, and all-around awesomeness at Free Comic Book Day at Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH! An incredible number of copies of the FCBD Edition of Book II of The Monitor's Guild went out the door in the hands of some truly wonderful fans and customers. Always a delight working with the Double Midnight folks and looking forward to future collaborations.

April 1, 2015

In precisely one month I will see you at DOUBLE MIDNIGHT COMICS in Manchester, NH to celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2015!

I'll be giving away some free swag, doing sketch cards, and unveiling some long-awaited news about the next publication from petervintonjr.com!

Special guests include Babs Tarr (Batgirl), Katie Cook (My Little Pony) and Joe Quinones, and many more of my amazing artist colleagues! The fun starts at 10am (though the earlier you come, you’ll get your chance at door prizes)! Don't forget to RSVP the event on Facebook! Looking forward to seeing you there on the morning of Saturday, May 2!

Openly weeping this day in this, the Year of the Spinning Mouse. Farewell Sir Terry. I cannot thank you enough; none of us can.

I had an absolutely delightful time lecturing at the Bradford (VT) Public Library this past Wednesday evening. We deconstructed some mythological themes, invented some entirely new superheroes, and discussed the graphic novel as both literature and as art form. Great group of folks! Artists: do make a point of donating some of your time (and your talents) to your local public library.

February 28, 2015

Another convention confirmation for 2015: I will be featuring at Granite State Comic Con on September 12-13!

December 8, 2014

Stuck for holiday ideas for that comic-book geek in your life? Three eminently wonderful retailers spring to mind:
  1. The Million Year Picnic in Cambridge, MA (Harvard Square),
  2. Comicazi in Somerville, MA (Davis Square), and
  3. Double Midnight Comics in Manchester AND Concord, NH

All of the above establishments and their awesome employees not only stock the best darned selection of genre titles and geeky/nostalgic collectibles (ranging from the wildly popular to the waaaay-too-obscure), but I'm proud to be able to say that they're also all carrying The Monitor's Guild, Book 1 on their shelves. So for that liberty-loving, government-distrusting patriot in your life (c'mon, every family's got at least one), order a copy from Amazon for the holidays!

And thank you one and all for ALL your support this past year! It's been heavy with a lot of great milestones, and 2015 looks to be every bit as spectacular! November 19, 2014

The Million Year PicnicI will be appearing at The Million Year Picnic in Harvard Square on Saturday, December 6 at 1:00pm! I will be selling (and signing) copies of The Monitor's Guild, Book 1!

Add the event to your Facebook calendar!

See you all there!

History was made this past weekend at Rhode Island Comic Con! Enjoy some pictures of the shenanigans.

Enthusiastic shout-outs to: Wicked Little Studio (of course!), to Jason Casey Art, to the genius creators of Lil' Levi, to my extremely patient neighbor Stefanie B., to cosplayer AZ Powergirl Cara Nicole, to the thoroughly-evil-but-still-amazingly-creative Connecticut Mothership, to the New England Brethren Of Pirates (thanks for not throwing me in the Gibbet, me hearties), the phenomenally talented minds behind the lavish Piccadilly and The Fairy Polka, and the extraordinarily gifted Dennis Burke (DesignsBy Dennis). I stand in silent awe at the sheer array of talent with whom I shared an aisle this weekend.

Oh, and just to round out the geekiness in case I didn't sound excited enough: I MET THE DOCTOR!

Still ahead before I finish out 2014: some more in-store appearances and signings at some of your favourite comic book outlets! Watch this space!

October 27, 2014

I got the best friends in all explored space:





September 16, 2014

What an amazing gathering: Granite State ComicCon 2014! Take a peek at what I got up to (a Flickr page): zombies, superheroes, phenomenal artists, and of course: comics aplenty!

Now then: you gonna be in Vermont this coming Sunday (September 21)? Come hang out at my Official Book Launch Party! Prizes, art, copies of The Monitor's Guild, Book One for sale, juicy gossip, and of course drinks. Mountains of thanks to the lovely Miss Phoebe Buskey for this unique opportunity! See you all there!

September 4, 2014


In one week I'll be in my element at Granite State ComicCon! My "home" con celebrates its eleventh year of life in Manchester, NH. Drop by my table and I'll draw ya somethin'! And of course copies of The Monitor's Guild, Book One will be available!

July 4, 2014

It's here!

The Monitor's Guild, Book One is now available! Happy Independence Day, my fellow renegades. Keep your powder dry and remember that this day is about challenging your government --not obeying it. If we as Americans ever lose that inherent tendency to subversion, then we've lost everything. Remember that as you light the fireworks. I hope you enjoy my story!

May 5, 2014

Allow me to share some of the awesomeness from this year's FREE COMIC BOOK DAY at Double Midnight Comics in Manchester, NH. More pictures of the revelry can be seen here.

April 28, 2014

See you at DOUBLE MIDNIGHT COMICS in Manchester, NH, this Saturday to celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2014!

I'll be giving away some free swag, doing sketch cards, and unveiling some long-awaited news about the latest publication from petervintonjr.com! Looking forward to seeing you there!

March 16, 2014

Thanks for the idea Miss Phoebe! SKETCH CARDS will indeed be a thing in 2014. Who wants some?

January 20, 2014

The Curator comes out of retirement. Happy birthday Tom Baker!

January 8, 2014

Happy Birthday Boris Vallejo! Thank you for inspiring my own particular artistic path!



January 5, 2014

And in accordance with my own New Year's resolution, Book #2 is underway.

I titled it 'Running From The Question.' (And yes, he's running in slow motion.)December 1, 2013

Yes, I'm still basking in the warm temporal glow of the unmitigated wonderfulness that was Doctor Who's 50th Anniversary. It's as though my more than 30+ years of fandom have been rewarded, in some way.

It goes without saying that I have drawn a great deal of Doctor Who material over the years. Here's what I've created this year to help celebrate:

Now then... is everyone ready for the 25th?

November 5, 2013

As expected, awesomeness abounded at this year's Rhode Island Comic Con (November 2-3, 2013). A phenomenal lineup of artists and quite a few big-name genre movie and TV stars made it out to the Littlest State for the Biggest Show! Big shout-out to Juli Mayers amd Kendra Less Saunders of Wicked Little Studios for making everything about the weekend letter-perfect. Come see what I got up to!

October 2, 2013

Another gallery to let you know what I've been up to: the weekend of September 28-29 saw me return to Granite State ComicCon, now a 2-day venture! There were Autobots, there were Doctors, there were zombie stormtroopers, there was a time-travelling DeLorean, there was She-Ra AND Skeletor, there was every villian in Gotham, and of course there were illustrators! Great fun; looking forward to the next ten years!

September 10, 2013

A couple of galleries to give you a little insight into my goings-on this summer: first up, in August the newly-rechristened Boston ComicCon, in which my beloved hometown decisively proves that it knows how to rebound from damn near anything. And then in September it's down to Maryland for Baltimore Comic Con in the company of Reapers and Mermaids.

July 15, 2013

Another con appearance added to what is shaping up to be a BUSY fall schedule! I'm now slated to appear at Baltimore Comic Con on September 7-8, 2013, along with my colleagues Eric Carter of My Blue Hat Illustrations, and the legendary Amy Fletcher of SINicallyTwisted Studios. Come check out the awesomeness that is the Inner Harbor, and find us under the Arlington's Artists banner!

Boston Comic Con
is roaring back, bigger and badder than ever, on its new date, August 3-4, at the Seaport World Trade Center. Drop by my table and say hello!

April 19, 2013

Drat. Boston Comic Con is now indeed postponed (NOT cancelled). We were all hopeful, but ultimately this situation is bigger than any of us. In the meantime alternative event dates and times are being discussed --but for now, thoughts and hopes are with the people of my beloved hometown and we fervently hope this madness resolves soon.

The comic book culture took a mere glancing blow today, nothing more. Far more important things to focus on.

April 16, 2013

Turning into a busy week. First, in spite of the horror that came out of my beloved hometown yesterday, Boston Comic Con is still a go, so I'll see you there, at Table #AAW29! (It takes a hell of a lot more than that to prevent us Bostonians from getting our nerd on.) Secondly, there will be an art auction, with all proceeds to benefit Boston area Red Cross and other relief efforts --duck on over to my Facebook page and tell me which piece you think ought to be donated! Finally, it's a little eleventh-hour of me, but I'll be at tonight's Dr. Sketchy of the Upper Valley event in White River Junction, VT, featuring MiMi LaMew and Dangeresque in Classic Burlesque! Come on out for the boozy mayhem!

January 22, 2013



Much superheroic fun was had at Triple Play in Lebanon, NH, at SUPERSKETCHY!, a Dr. Sketchy event. Thanks to Miss Phoebe for providing the usual levels of awesomeness!

I was humbled and honored to be able to provide the advertising artwork for the event; take a peek at the poster here.

November 24, 2012

Major project completed, one that's been more than 2 years in the making (or more than twenty, depending on your measuring stick). The Monitor's Guild, Book 1 is finished and will be seeking a publisher in calendar year 2013. Look for it at next year's Boston Comic Con, Granite State ComicCon, and elsewhere! And a particularly heartfelt thank you to everyone who's been nagging me to get this one moved to the "done" column. (And that's a long list!) Been a rough road but it's good to cross the finish line.

September 27, 2012

Don't know if I've mentioned it a time or two before, but I also take commissions (particularly pen-and-ink work). --grin-- Give my comicartcommissions.com profile a look-over!


July 30, 2012

I don't know why it has taken this darned long to sink in, but: tip for illustrators. Get the characters' eyes done first. Seriously. It's the single most important detail of the entire drawing --you get that part right, you're golden. The rest of the face, hair, and the body will just kind of fall into place. Finish the eyes first --that way if you make a mistake, you won't have to crumple up/throw away a nearly-completed illustration. You'd think this principle would have seeped into my brain sometime before the age of 42. Sheesh...

July 8, 2012

In a couple more days (July 10) this very website marks a bit of a milestone: the seventh anniversary of its launch. (Also coincidentally that day, the artist himself turns 42 --presumably there will be a great awakening of some Douglas Adams-level wisdom.) Come celebrate by looking over my work! Have you an all-time favorite?

June 3, 2012

One week to go before Granite State ComicCon! A wondrous gathering of awesomeness awaits! Drop by my booth and say hello!

May 31, 2012

Y'into mermaids atall? You have got to check out SINicallyTwisted's (Amy Fletcher's) recent body of work. And there's more to come!

May 23, 2012

Spent some quality time at Dr. Sketchy's of the Upper Valley this evening. Special guest was the frighteningly engrossing (or should it be engrossingly frightening?) Hell N' Fury. There was burlesque, there was dancing on broken glass, there was fire-eating, there was a staple gun. I'm definitely going to need a little time to recover from this one... --grin--

April 18, 2012

Alas, due to conflicting commitments, I won't be joining in the revelry at Boston Comic Con this coming weekend. (I know, I know. First time in 6 years.) But you still MUST swing by and gawk at the stunning work of Jason Casey, Juli Mayers, Amy Fletcher (who will also be emceeing this year's costume contest), Eric Carter, Scott Ethan Ambruson, Scott Hamilton, and the collective body of awesomeness that is Sci-Fi Saturday Night. Tickets are $20 for a single day, or $35 dollars for both days. Go get yer geek on!

March 19, 2012

I am formally confirmed for Granite State ComicCon: Sunday, June 10th in Manchester, NH. Drop by my booth and say hello! I'll draw ya somethin' superheroic.

March 14, 2012

Just did a book cover. Sneak on over to Amazon.com and check out At The Foot Of The Throne for your Kindle. Rags to riches and finding True Love is not always all that the fairy tales say. In At The Foot Of The Throne by Noël Lynne Figart, two countries stand on the brink of war, and a young villager finds herself thrown into the center of the conflict.

March 3, 2012

Gonna be in the Upper Valley next month? Come hang with us at Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School of White River Junction (yes, the tradition has spread even that far). Last month featured a tribute to The King himself; on April 11 we'll be gazing upon the loveliness that is Roller Derby girls. Come on out and say hello! Our last session was truly one for the ages; among other things, I met The King himself!

February 2, 2012

Sometimes, I'm just darned glad I can draw. Here's one particularly important reason why.

January 19, 2012

Yes, we went dark on January 18. It's that important.

January 10, 2012

23,040 times a day, this is where you are.Have you been to the Blinkspace? (Well actually, yes, you have. Roughly 23,040 times a day.) I'm going to heartily recommend some fascinating tales that emanate from there.

Pick up a copy of Edward Martin's Close Your Eyes - Tales From The Blinkspace and be prepared to have your brain stretched (and your heart rate accelerated).

You're welcome.

November 23, 2011

Instead of the usual big 'ol "box" retailers this Black Friday, why not shop a little more... well, selectively?


October 15, 2011 - New Feature!

Production diary of The Monitor's Guild: Four new pages complete since I shamefacedly gave some of my closest friends carte-blanche to nag the ever-lovin' heck out of me. What's your favorite near-future dystopia story/series and why?

September 25, 2011

If perchance you missed it, here's the podcast of the 100th TalkCast of Sci-Fi Saturday Night. Some amazing reminisces with some amazing people.

September 14, 2011

I'm humbled to have been asked to be part of a very special event: the 100th episode of Sci-Fi Saturday Night! Tune in Saturday, September 24 for a look back, a look ahead, and possibly even a few pan-dimensional looks sideways at one of science fiction's most innovative founts of information!

August 13, 2011

The TARDIS corset currently being idolized all 'cross the Internet is, in part, the product of the brilliant mind of Avril Korman, of Damned Good Design. Please visit Avril's site and show her some love.

June 24, 2011

There always seem to be a few leftovers. If you've ever wondered what the heck it is I do at cons, there's a smattering of samples here. These typically take about 20-30 minutes to do, depending on the complexity of the character. I'll freely admit that I usually have a very rough "pre-sketched" actiony-adventury pose already prepped for many of these character treatments, but certainly not all. If you're interested in possessing one of these unique little souvenirs or would like to commission something greater, by all means drop me a line.

May 16, 2011

What a magnificent couple of weekends!

Boston ComicCon and Granite State ComicCon are now consigned to the archives and what a couple of wondrous events they were! I must extend heartfelt thanks to a lot of folks; please make a point of checking these artists out!

And of course I must thank the folks at Double Midnight Comics for giving me this wonderful platform to reach out to fans and customers. I'd also really recommend you check out the Silver Circle folks for some serious brain food and a superbly-constructed upcoming story. And have you ordered your copy of Browncoats Redemption yet? Sweet merciful heavens why not?

April 29, 2011

Boston ComicCon now only hours away! I'll be at table AAW 35 (which sounds like an Imperial stormtrooper callsign, now that I stop to think about it). See you all there!

March 31, 2011

Another convention appearance confirmed: Granite State Comic Con in Manchester, NH, on May 15, 2011. See you there!

March 21, 2011

If perchance you missed it, here's the podcast of this weekend's appearance with the good people of Sci-Fi Saturday Night. On the docket: bidding farewell to Michael Gough, a heated debate centered around Kevin Costner, and (of course) opinions aplenty on Wonder Woman's new TV-series costume.

March 14, 2011

I am humbled to announce that the good people of Sci-Fi Saturday Night have very graciously invited me to appear on their show as a guest this coming Saturday, March 19.

I'll be discussing The Monitor's Guild in particular and Near-Future Dystopias in general, and we'll probably work in conversations about Boston ComicCon, the ComicBook Artists' Guild, and a fair amount of Doctor Who squee-ing, too.

Broadcast begins at 8:00pm EST; my segment will likely start somewhere around 8:30pm. Thanks for tuning in!

February 27, 2011

Allow me to take a moment to hype the artistic talents of a fellow creative soul: Honey And Ollie. Enjoy the shiny!

February 11, 2011

Did you see that ludicrous display last night?


February 1, 2011

Major illustrative project completed for the good people of Free Lunch Comics. More details to follow!

December 2, 2010

It's been a delightfully busy autumn; keep an eye out for Free Lunch Comics' Sky Pirates Of Valendor 2011 calendar! Pre-order your copy here.

August 28, 2010

Gave the website a wee bit of a facelift. Very satisfying. Will not, alas, be attending Dragon*Con nor NYCC or BigApple this fall, but am lining up my appearances for 2011.

In the meantime, check out the awesomeness over at the Comic Artists' Guild; the long-awaited ICONIC 2 anthology is now in production!

August 9, 2010

Me in difficult working conditions, busily working on a piece somewhere between 13th and 14th Avenue and oceanfront, Virginia Beach. Offspring and rest of family clearly more interested in bodysurfing and UV collection. Subject matter of drawing almost certainly involves pretty ladies wearing very little.

Seriously, great week. Don't know if I feel "recharged" after a 14-hour drive back to the Upper Valley, but it was most emphatically NOT time poorly spent. I really am a very lucky SOB at times if I haven't mentioned. End results of drawings now on view.

May 30, 2010

Jeanne has passed. Some wonderful words from Spider.

April 12, 2010

Seriously; great freakin' con --Boston's biggest and best yet. It keeps growing at this rate, it'll be on par with New York and San Diego in just a couple more years. Came home with notably less stock than when I set out on Friday; and that doesn't always happen. Ran out of business cards again; I always view that as a win.

(I know I'm a con regular by now --I now have to be nudged to look up so's I can have the sexy Slave Leias and Wonder Woman costumes pointed OUT to me. Believe it or not there was a time when my eyes would have picked that kind of spectacle out all by themselves.)

Folks you might want to check out:

Special notice must be afforded to the folks at Sci-Fi Saturday Night, who organized a "cartoonists' slam" for the benefit of authors Spider and Jeanne Robinson, whose work has come to mean so much to so many. Jeanne is, sadly, now in palliative care and dear LORD has the science fiction community ever come together on this. I was proud to help out on this one and hope it can afford some small measure of relief for the Robinsons. Keeping a candle lit on this one.

October 27, 2009

I got quoted in an interview for Convention Scene! Very humbling.

October 17, 2009

Only at a comic con:
  • can Artoo-Detoo roll into the men's room, beep a few lines of dialogue, and roll back out, and not cause a SINGLE guy to so much as look up.
  • can the artist at the end of Row 3030 be a squeeing fanboy admirer of the artist at the end of Row 3070, who is in turn a squeeing fanboy admirer of the artist at the end of Row 3090, who is in turn a squeeing fanboy admirer of the first artist back at the end of Row 3030.
  • can Kathy Ann Najimy ask the world at large if someone could bring her a bottled water and watch as four guys promptly knock each down to try be the first to the food court.
  • can "The DeLorean" advertised as being from Back To The Future sit idle and unoccupied for hours at a time because everyone can tell at a glance that it's not the real movie prop. Sorry, promoters. Try World of Wheels next time; you ain't fooling THIS fanbase.
  • can an overly-large bearded guy dress in a white Princess Leia robe and even have his hair done up in "donut buns" and have it not really attract any undue notice.
  • can a teenage video game tester not even NOTICE that Linda M***F***ing Hamilton is less than a foot away, looking over his shoulder at the onscreen action.
  • can Gil M***F***ing Gerard offer advice to an emerging artist on the potential effects of fame.
  • can a homemade "Predator" costume attract a bigger crowd than any half-dozen becleavaged teen superheroines put together.
  • can an emerging artist be videoed by a TV news crew not in fact working on a "real" piece, but instead doodling a very silly ninety-second sketch of Iron Man flashing the peace sign. *wince*
Coming home tomorrow. And go here for best gorram interior designer you are EVER gonna find. EVER.

September 1, 2009

I have an official bio page at Wizard World. How awesome is that? See you at BigAppleCon!

May 2, 2009

See you in Manchester, NH for Free Comic Book Day! Come on by my table and say hello.

November 16, 2008

Freakin' GREAT show. I never stop being amazed by the variety of character sketch requests that get put forward by the guests: today I drew a Hellboy, a Wolverine, a Carnage, a generic barbarian-in-a-loincloth, a general-purpose Halo trooper, and (my own personal project) a rendition of Will Smith as Captain America. Much opportunity for handshaking and conversation, and I even got interviewed by the local Portsmouth, NH news folks. (No idea if I'll be on the six o'clock news this evening.) And I RAN OUT of business cards. Again. *grin*

Of perhaps greater significance: I had some pretty substantive conversations with some publishers, including one group of folks who took one look at this picture and promptly invited me to produce splash pages for their next four issues. I'd pump my fist in the air except that it wouldn't look professional.

Exhausted but tremendously happy. A really good gig and hopefully one that will bear even more fruit.

Okay, up next: firming up my Arisia appearance. Also waiting to hear back from the Wondercon folks in San Francisco and also the Atlanta Comic Convention people.

Some folks you should really take a look at:

"In the end, all the tips in the world won't make as much a difference as this simple (and timeless) instruction. Just sit down and start. Feel Resistance to doing that? There's no way to overcome it than to just start. Reading more about Resistance won't help. Going to an online Procrastinator's Forum won't help. Working on your to-do lists won't help. Only doing actually helps. And the only way to do something is to just start.

"So how do you start, when you feel resistance? You just start."


Full serving of brain food here. Read, then just start. Thank you Holly Young.

(Also worth a read: Getting Stuff The Fuck Done --first pointed out to me by Noël Figart, one of the most clear-headed Just Start people I've ever known.)
