Doodle Away

Edgar-Loo-doodle

Today was my day for tuning into CreativeLive for the free Illustrator lesson. I did learn a lot and refreshed my mind from years ago when I first took the course. As my mind began to wonder and after sitting on my butt for several hours, I began to doodle in Illustrator.

My lovely creature formed as the teacher showed tips and tricks. I named him Edgar Loo, have no idea why, it just popped into my head. I’m thinking he might become my new muse for writing.

Happy writing everyone!

Try try try

me two 005I am going to try it again. I joined Camp Nanowrimo for April to write my novel. I am staying with the 50,000 words even though this challenge one can set any number of word count. I did get me a T-shirt for the challenge hoping it will be my “muse”. Hey anything helps. 🙂 I wonder if I need to wash it everyday…:)

Of course, I won’t wear it everyday.

After I took this picture, I chopped all my hair off. I guess I needed a change to write this novel. Or could it be I was bored with the long hair. Or really wanting that warm weather to show up.

I went back into my novel for the first time since January and ended up scrapping a whole chapter. It sounded really ridiculous. I have been doing research on writing a novel to get me more prepared. At least that is what I tell myself, though I think it is just another way to put off writing. 🙂

I am going to achieve this. It is my dream. I have wanted to write a novel since I was a teenager. I just got side tracked the last 25 years. I feel the timing is right. I just got to get past this block in the story. I know what I want to write, just need to put it all together somehow, some way. 🙂

Yes, I have a good feeling about this. Now if the sunshine and warmth would come out I could go write in other nice places without being trapped at my desk area. I think that would help.

I think the groundhog lied. 😦
