In July I had a lot of projects to do. Some succeeded while others did not.
The 50,000 word novel - Fail. I got close but decided victory by typing out something that didn't fit the plot wasn't true victory.
24 page zine. Done. I will have it in a printable form soon.
Wonder Woman drawing. It vexes me. It may be that perfection is the enemy of the good in this case. I plan to do one final version and that is it. I want it delivered as soon as possible.
1 Undersea Critter art card. Not Done.
4 Flora/Fauna art cards. Done. The seagull is older but was submitted for the swap anyway.
I am a fairly private person. My wife is about the only person that I share the deeper parts of myself with. This week I shared something with another person that I trust. I won't go into details (you can't get my secrets that easily!) but sharing something that I have not voiced for so many years to an understanding soul is liberating. Parts of it I have held onto since I was a teenager and saying it to my confidante has liberated part of myself that has been blocking my creativity for decades. I am finding myself reflecting heavily on it in my sketch diary. No, you don't get to see those drawings! Stop trying to figure my stuff out!
I've also been listening to a lot of Willie Nelson so that may be contributing to a shift in my mental state. :-)
