Today is October 31st! That means two things:
- At midnight tonight, #NaNoWriMo starts.
- At midnight tonight, #Inktober ends.
This is the first year I’ve done Inktober, and I’m happy with the experiment. I had fun, I made some skill progress, I pushed myself, and apparently I pushed a few other people too, in a good way, as a couple of people have told me privately that they were inspired to try something new because of my Inktober posts — and I think that’s fantastic. Being authentic and trying to improve a non-existent skill was the original goal.
I hope you enjoyed accompanying me on my inky journey!
The final prompt for Inktober, appropriate to Halloween, was “mask.” So I drew a seasonal masked pumpkin.
Tomorrow I’ll jump into NaNoWriMo and try to complete a draft for a new novel. I’d planned to write one project which I was excited about — and even made notes and such beforehand, which is not how I usually approach NaNo — but my muse seems to have staged a coup and wants to go back to an old, mostly abandoned project. We’ll see how it goes!
