Okay, so that post-NaPoWriMo break wasn't much of a break after all, considering I've spent nearly every day working. I wish I had more time for creative pursuits. 
So I'm going to find some!
On the "Projects" list already:

-short story about a girl sacrificed to a forest demon
-short story about an evil witch with nineteen names
-rewrite my "minnows" poem
-paint some lineart (I haven't forgotten, MaiaCarlson!)
-paint Iacapo's character, Henri
-make a wood-burning for my cousin's wedding
-rainy beach poem (nope, haven't forgotten that one either, kilkegard:D)
-"Eternally Yours" short story

Oh man. I need to get busy. 
Also, if anyone has any poetry prompts they wanna throw out there, I'd be willing to take a crack at them. 



Of course I had to go and make my list longer. :XD:
Two steps forward, one step back...
  • Mood: Eager
  • Listening to: "On Top of the World" by Imagine Dragons
  • Reading: notes
  • Eating: scrambled eggs with feta
  • Drinking: apple juice

Its just not the same since NAPOWRIMO ended.  How are you doing?

Haha, I know--I miss hearing from my supporters every day. I am doing well. Making a creative to-do list, actually. So far it reads: color a friend's line art, paint another friend's character, rewrite my "minnows" poem, write a short story about a witch with 19 names, write a short story about a girl sacrificed to a forest demon, and make a word-burning/etching for my dad's birthday. :sigh: 

And you? 

I wanted to thank you, by the way, for your much-appreciated support during NaPoWriMo. You were one of the few people who read all my poems, and your feedback was great! :tighthug:

I hope the girl who gets sacrificed to the forest demon manages a last minute escape.  Yikes!

I'm trying write as much as I can (I'm at work 8-10 hours a day so there isn't always time), and for me it's sometimes a fight with the words to get them on the page.  I figure I might be good for 1 new work a week give or take.  That's my soft goal.  I'm also trying to spend a bout an hour a day on French, emphasis on trying =P (Razz) .  I've decided I kinda like the "First Date" poem, but I'm going to try to also put together a short story treatment on the same thing.  I've also got a sci-fi type story floating in my head.  But I want to spend time and get it write right. 

You are very welcome.  Hug   I actually like doing the feedback thing.  I try, when I can, to comment whenever I fave something.  Sometimes my brain doesn't want to co-operate though.  And sometimes I spend more time commenting than writing my own stuff.  Of course, I'll sometimes use the feedback I give others as a spring board into new ideas to work on.

Haha, you'll have to read it when I finally get around to writing it, and find out! 

Ah, work does get in the way of creative pursuits, but I confess, I have been known to write entire poems on mini post-it notes. I even commandeered a green fine-point sharpie and some bigger post-its to do a series of character portraits at work once.  (Hopefully they never give me a lie detector on disappearing office supplies--"What? Steal? No! I enriched them. :XD:)
And I practice my French by slipping a line or two into my poems every now and then. ;) 
Also, I always thought sci-fi stories require a lot of background work... But now that I think of it, fantasy does, too. World-building is fun!

Yeah, I'm really bad about commenting, though I always respond to them. It's fun to see the different ways people interpret my work, or find inspiration in it, but just hearing a "good job!" is always great, too. :aww:
