I think I need a break from drawing for a little while. Aside from very NSFW "Don't Break The Chain" doodles every day.

I think the double-edged sword when it comes to my :icontechnicoloroct: rounds was that I was writing as if it were an episodic TV show. Which meant longer scenes with more dialogue. And then when I couldn't finish them in time and had to truncate that stuff, I felt like I'd let myself and the material down.

I'm constantly stuck between feeling mentally drained when I draw for too long, and also feeling like I'm not doing ENOUGH.


I notice writing is easier for me, but I don't think that's a sign of what I should be doing with my life or anything like that. It's just something I've observed. Writing this journal post is less taxing on me than even thumbnailing a comic page, or doing lineart. I wish drawing didn't take so much out of me. I wish I enjoyed drawing more.


I also feel bad about taking a break when there's so much I need to get done. So many pages to ink, an Epilogue round to plan, and even some fan art I promised a couple of peeps a while back that just kind of slipped my mind. Especially since I haven't had much else to occupy my time. But I've got a lot of shit to sort out right now. Sorry if it takes me longer to get around to this stuff.


Also, I saw Roger Ebert's biodoc and feel like someone punched my heart in the stomach. I miss that man so much.


I suck at ending journals or thoughts in general, so I leave you with the musical stylings of Bill Withers: [link]
