Fridaily with painting

This morning I sat down at my computer, noodled around a little, then told myself, "Ellen, you know, you'd be a lot less unhappy with your artwork if you practiced more." And, before I could whine about how I didn't have time to practice, I made myself get up and spend an hour painting. It was time I would have otherwise spent... what? Noodling around on the internet? Refreshing the forums I frequent, waiting for comments and wondering why people didn't looooove me and why I was so laaaaame.

(Am I the only one who spends far too much time doing that?)

Now I'm going to set the timer and spend one hour coding on the Fantasy Art Shop/lilypad controls and then I will have a delicious lunch and watch an episode of Angel, take a short walk with the dog, draft for two hours, and spend the rest of the afternoon coding on either Commission-Control, EMG-Zine, Torn World, or... something else. (Perhaps on the the Fantasy Art Shop again, depending on where I left it.)
