quarantine blogging: drawing stuff

I started keeping a paper journal again in January after I took Fran Wilde’s Journaling for Creativity class over at the Rambo Academy (there are some really good workshops over there, and Cat Rambo has scholarships available).  I wanted to do something messy and scrapbook-ish (somewhere to put the stickers I accumulate and never want to use!  A place to tape ticket stubs!) and just … ramble, I guess.

This week I’ve been drawing in it.  I can draw a little bit, cartoony doodles kind of things.  Sometimes I think I’d like to learn to really draw, but mostly I’m okay with jellybean monsters and stick figure art.  I got out the colored pencils and drew flowers.  Some of them look nice; some look not so great.  I read (probably on Tumblr) that it’s important to have things you like doing that you don’t feel pressure to be good at, so I suppose drawing is that for me.

(I have got to go to bed early tonight; I slept badly early this week, then last night I fucked up my email and stayed up until midnight unfucking it, so I am tired, y’all.)

I read (you can check out my Goodreads if you want; it's linked on my blog). I write (I’ve been published in Cicada, On Spec, Strange Horizons, Beneath Ceaseless Skies, Betwixt, Metaphorosis, Gallery of Curiosities, The Cassandra Project; the stuff that’s available online is linked on my blog). I plan for the inevitable zombie apocalypse and welcome the coming of the gorilla revolution. Or the anarchist rabbits. Whichever happens first. (I also blame my husband for basically everything.)
