Remember, the question is optional!
February 6 question – Besides writing what other creative outlets do you have?
I’m bad about getting out there and doing things just for fun. We all know writing has a way of becoming a second job, and usually, I’m about as brutal a taskmaster as any. (Yes, of course I want my revision finished. And I want it finished RIGHT NOW.)
I finally bought that new computer, and the two-in-one form factor (convertible, not detachable) lends itself to more doodling and drawing than I’ve done in years. It came with a Wacom bamboo stylus. Yes, it did. (Well, they were shipped in the same box, and that counts.)
I’m not as good at it as I am with a paper and pencil, but the tidiness of the thing makes my sketches easy to keep track of.
I draw. I paint. And now and then, I do a little photography. (My own, personal camera is a Pentax K1000 I got used years ago. For hiking, it’s usually my camera phone.)
In a setting with more people, and more free time, I also dance. It’s been a disturbingly long time since I’ve done that.
I’ve reached the major rewrite portion of my current revision, and it’s definitely a major overhaul. I’m not sure how much of the original book will be left, right now. At the same time, I do think this is making it better.
