March 2017 in Review

M

Yikes. March just flew by.

It was a tough month for me, both emotionally and health-wise, but it was nothing I couldn’t handle and so I still got a good amount of stuff done.

I am glad I am feeling better though. Curating my internet consumption  definitely helped.  So no more twitter,  I trimmed down my webcomic feed and avoid  reading Warcraft related whining. Sometimes I still slip up – there are a few artists I like that are only on twitter and checking their feeds is tempting – but I usually get  quickly reminded why it’s a bad idea.

Seems like I lost my patience for bullshit lately – and it’s such a relief.

Health

Been sickly most of the month, one cold after the other. Come to think, I’ve been ill a lot lately; probably because my daily commute through Waterloo Station gives me lots of oppertunity to pick up new and exiting bugs.

Anyway, long story short, I didn’t do much running and no weigthlifting this month. Gotta do better in April.

Art

The instagram experiment continues. I  posted six pictures in March and four of them were completely new – I started doing character design for Nyx & Nyssa in earnest, and it shows.

One of them is a rather involved inked piece I am quite proud of, even though I already know what to do better next time.

Also set up my scanner for quick scans of my inked work.  The iPhone camera works fine for sketches, but it cannot compare to a good scan.

Writing

15,852 words and 24 hours and 41 minutes of pure writing. This was a good month for me. Of these results I am rightly proud.

Nyx and Nyssa is coming along well. I abandoned my “write from start to end” for a “jump around for whatever scene I am thinking of” approach and am desperately hoping that I will not regret that approach in future.  Love to see how the ending is shaping up, though.

Social

Guild killed Guldan normal. Guldan Heroic will fall soon. Mwahahaha.
