I’ve noticed a tiny trend in my writing, it usually involves me starting things with the word “So”. I’m going to be making the extra effort to stop doing that… I was sick for 2 weeks, I’m finally better and just in time. Admittedly, being sick and unable to do anything but sleep turned out to be exactly what I needed to help me get out of the creative funk I was in…
It did not however help with deadlines. As I’ve mentioned before, I have ADHD. Sometimes it’s a wonderful blessing, most of the time it’s a “mixed bag”. While sick? It was interesting… I couldn’t take my meds because they would interact with the meds I was taking for the sinus infection. Which led to an outpouring of massive creativity bubbles and a complete and total lack of any version of focus. I’m lucky I remembered to write any of the ideas that poured from my head down… All of my ideas came in the form of dreams, I was brainstorming in my sleep because I really didn’t have the energy to do anything.
This led me to start rethinking my creative process and working through some ideas I’d placed on the backburner. I have begun adding more stand-alone work to my “Art of Lisa” page and I redrew some of my baseline characters for my other comics. Oh, and I started a “Bottled” series.
Things to come, I have so many adventures to finish with BLH. I promise it will be fun.
Uni’s plotline is plodding (I know, I know, speed it up)… So I did storyboard a way to make it go faster.
Finally? I will be adding more tidbits about life with ADHD and my “Art of” page will be updated more often. I’m also planning to attempt a blog more than once a month… We’ll see how that goes.
As always, thanks so much for reading!
