Time for a Journal Update (I guess)

Journal Entry: Tue Apr 18, 2017, 1:47 PM

It's been a year since I wrote my last journal, so I think it's time to put something fresh up! Pretty general update journal.

A R T: I've been a bit more of a lurker here on dA and FA. I tend to draw in spurts now, but I've been getting back into a more consistent style that I really like. I feel like I've improved a fair amount in the last year, and I'd just like to draw more to make use of what I've gained, but I definitely have trouble motivating and not feeling mildly bored. I also don't sit down and just draw for the sake of drawing. Though, I did take over the sketchbook I originally bought for my boyfriend and I doodle in there sometimes just to get my hand moving.

I have a YCH posted on FA that I need to get back to. All slots are open but I think I need to polish it up more, and I've had a couple busy past couple weeks and I haven't been able to focus on that. It's spring picnic themed if you wanna peek at it.…

W R I T I N G: A couple months ago I bolted out about three short stories that I fixed up and have been sending those around. I'm hoping to get those published, and know that will take some time to get them in front of the right people. I have a couple works in progress but they're longer and giving me issues.

King's Heir is going a bit slowly. I'm having trouble getting all the way through the first third of the story, and then figuring out what I'm going to be writing about in the middle of the story. I kind of have the same thing going on with "I Would Do Anything" and so that's partially drafted and has a whole entire outline, but I lost steam on it. These are projects I intend to finish, but I think they need to molder and stew for a bit.

But basically my plan for King's Heir was that it would be read with Pound of Flesh and Just Beneath the Surface to kind of explore Kovu and how his nature is influenced by who's in charge of nurturing him and steering him down one path or another.

E T S Y/ I G: <<< I've mostly been busy with this. I hit quite a few milestones at the end of last year, and I'm very close to 400 sales right now. I've been hustling a lot, especially on IG and it's been paying off. I've found my niche, which helps. There are ups and downs, and it does take a lot of my energy, but I love working with my hands and interacting with customers.

L I F E: Doing better than I was last year, and last week I actually finally decided to get on something, so I'm on a prescription that will hopefully help with my PMS (and potential other issues?). I hope I'll get back more of my spark and I'll be able to tackle more of the things I want to more often. I also spend most of my time at my bf's place but I'm not fully moved in yet (though practically I am. :aww:)

I have been cutting out squares of fabric and I'm hoping to make myself a cute quilt, and I've been playing Rimworld and reading a lot more.

Writer. Artist. I considered going to art school, but the self-improvement route was cheaper. Instead I got a B.A. in English Writing. My favorite part of writing is when a character takes over their story and becomes almost sentient. When I'm drawing, my favorite part of an illustration is doing the lining and shading.

I'm a very introverted person. I tend to tire out easily when it comes to people, so I don't get to 100% of my messages. I do read every one of them, and do have bigger bursts of energy at times.
