Tons of writing and drawing was done today! Holy moly! I even surprised myself!
With a few side projects out of the way, and some drawing too, I also spent some time writing! Yowzers!
The story is moments away from the “tipping point” of action and excitement. What’s going to be really great is that when I hit it, the momentum will not stop until the story is over. It’s going to take a lot of preparations for myself mentally to take it on, so I’m actually considering holding off getting to that momentum until after the thirty day challenge.
I’m sure you’re screaming, “WHAT?!” right now.
I know, right? But I really need to take a breather from the story in order to get caught up with other things in my life right now. Spending most days working, only to come home and work (albeit, it can be ‘playing’ sometimes) can become pretty taxing. So what I’m proposing for myself is to get to that awesome “point” in the story, then focus the remainder of my challenge going back and fixing things I know need fixing. I’ll set up another thirty day challenge after my break and go from there.
This of course, doesn’t mean I’m going to stop writing until the next challenge. Heck no. I just won’t be forced to do it, and be a lot more relaxed when writing. It’s not my profession. Not yet. . .
Anneke van Giersbergen’s solo albums are real fun listens to. Her 2009 release, “In Your Room” has many little stories in each song. Each one could probably fit somewhere in your life with knowing someone who acts the way someone does in a song, or even with yourself. It’s a real joy to listen to. Easy listening as well.
