This has been a hell of a month, creativity-wise; despite occasionally falling behind on my OctPoWriMo or Inktober prompts, I’ve none-the-less been getting them all done (just, you know, occasionally a day or two late). I’m currently searching for a other creative prompts/marathon/sprints/challenges to complete in the upcoming year (and if I find some good ones, I’ll put up a page/calendar for them to share with you all) because I’ve been so happy with my output this month.
Also carrying me along this week:
First, some of my favorite vloggers have started uploading Christmas haul and Christmas decor DIYs. I’m super happy, because Christmas is by and far my favorite holiday, and the one I try to go all out for, so I’m psyched to get some early decor ideas to plan for and start in on. Bargain Bethany, unsurprisingly, has one of my early faves in this Dollar Tree Christmas DIY video.
My brother had more beer than he needed, I guess? So he gave me some? Free beer, hey, I’m not going to complain. Beer is not at the top of my list of preferred alcohols, but my brother and I at least drink the same kinds (mostly Sam Adams and Blue Moon), so if he’s giving it away, it’s worth it to take a few. I grabbed four bottles, and enjoyed one with my dinner of homemade chili tonight.
Dependent on how we feel, but Lesley University is hosting MICE, the Massachusetts Independent Comics Expo tomorrow and Sunday, and it’s family-friendly, free, and Abby Howard is going to be there, so that might be a pretty cool thing to do if we have nothing else going on (or you, if you are in the Cambridge/Boston area).
Also, I’m going to recommend the British-Canadian Netflix original Hilda to you all, because it is super cute and quirky and as much as I love/as nostalgic as I am for the cartoons of my childhood, I am getting positively sick of the way people insist on how much “better” cartoons used to be. There are so, so, so many amazing animated shows on the air/available, people! Just, go friggin’ watch some!
Anyway, that’s it for me. I’ behind again on OctPoWriMo (surprise, surprise) and am going to trying to bang out a few words before bed. At least there’s the weekend, right?
How have things been going for you all?
