Hello and welcome one and all,
Yeah, so I realized a while back that my last journal had been Inktober 2016 and it's been nearly a full year since then so I figured I'd give some sort of update.
Those of you that watch me are aware that I am not dead on this site. In fact, I'm still just as active here as I am anywhere else. The issue is, I haven't been creating like I used to.
Somewhere along the lines, I got slower when it came to drawing. Writing hasn't slowed down but my muse has as well as what and where I'm writing. I actually haven't had much motivation to do much in my life to begin with and I'm hoping to keep up on Inktober like I'm supposed to. If nothing else, there will be 31 new images posted in the next month (still September for another hour and handful of minutes).
Good news is that I did get two chapters of Othertale posted in six months. Now, granted, those two chapters were posted at the sixth month mark, but it works out to being a chapter every three months. Chapter Two was a wonderful problem child I am overjoyed is now complete. I have every intention of getting the next chapter out far sooner than three months, let alone six, so we'll see if I can manage that. So far, we're on schedule for a release within the set timeframe.
Additionally. I still have a ton of drawings planned out, I'm just trying to not only figure out when to make them, but how I'm going to do it lacking not only a muse but motivation most days. Again, the feeling that drawings are taking so long is a real motivation killer at time, especially with other, higher priority projects. *coughs*Othertale, work, commissions*coughs*
For those wondering, I am writing regularly - mostly short story esk things- though they haven't been posted here. On a different site, three prompts are posted each month and also does writing events every few months and I've been debating about putting up those writings here on DA as well. If ya wanna see them here, give me a shout out and I'll work on transferring them here. There's a lot to upload and I need to find time to do it. I haven't put much effort into that sort of thing, though, mostly because I haven't seen much interest here for writings. If that changes, I'll make it a higher priority.
I think that covers the important things during the missing year so I will end the journal here.
Have a fantastic Inktober and I will catch you all on the flip side,
