Psst, don't tell my editor
, but I totally haven't done anything in forever. *shame* In between catching a never-ending cold (I'm still coughing and slightly snuffly weeks later), the holidays, work, and multiple people buying me new games... [Holy crap, a thank you shout-out especially to MuseofHeart
for Splatoon!] My novel has been dormant with me missing deadlines already.
That stops now.
I really do have the desire to finish this damn thing. I'm trying to make a promise not only to my editor and friends/family to get it done; but to myself. I really need to finish this draft. I can't worry or fret about it anymore. I just need to sit down and write. And if I get stuck I've got RPs with, the ever patient and too-kind-to-me, Fylgjur
that I can use effectively as warm-ups. Editing isn't my main focus anymore and so long as I get the draft done--the rest will follow. I've got it all planned out; so the only thing left is to get my time management skills running again. I'm cutting a lot of the time-sinks that have been detracting me lately, namely a lot of mobile games, Tumblr, and limiting my console gaming to only a few hours during the week when I get home from work and I wouldn't be able to devote the proper time or mental function to writing anyway. Seriously, no more spending all of Friday night on gaming... That's prime writing time right there.
I know a lot of my watchers probably aren't that interested in listening to me ramble about all this, but the way I see it; if I write down a plan and have witnesses... I'm more likely to stick to it. Yeah.
I can do this. I have to do this.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----To Do List:
• Theme/Animal Sketches:
• Surprise sketch(es) for [redacted] and [seriously this is just a note-to-self so I don't forget them].To everyone on this list:
Please submit your requests in the comments! I just really want to one-fell-swoop these as soon as possible so I'm not stressing over owed art when I could be writing. I know I promised to live-stream these, but I'll rock them out quicker if I don't have to worry about the whole recording thing. I am still really excited to draw these, because I'd been planning on surprising you all by turning them into stickers later, so please don't even think about offering to drop out.
----- ----- ----- ----- -----Reminder:
My group has two contests on-going with some fantastic bonus prizes; please head on over and take a look~!
And if you aren't interested in joining (or even if you are) I'd really appreciate any form of advertising you could do. Maybe give it a journal plug, or mention it to some friends... It really is great practice and everyone is super nice. I love it so much.
Thank you for taking the time to read this all. I really appreciate it.
