Wednesdaily with ugh.

I'm feeling rather discouraged about my artwork lately. Partly it's my usual 'don't have tiiiiiime to do everything I waaaaaaant,' and partly it's a few unrelated little ego-pops (not getting into projects I thought I was a good fit for, throwing a 40% off sale at my Etsy store last month and getting NO takers). Nothing entirely critical by itself, but sales have been dismal across the board. October is usually my best month, and this one has been absolutely DIRE for me. I am trying not to take it personally or let it slow me down.

Finished #inktober #12 yesterday, but haven't scanned it yet! Wrote some words this morning and think the not-a-book is going to be at least two scenes longer than I thought. Which means six scenes left to write. May have to start getting up early to write again. That was a good way to get words written. It's just haaaaaard to get up, especially now that it's so depressingly dark in the early morning.

Have to make a list, because I'm not going to get through it if I don't make myself accountable:

~Finish laundry (1 load in dryer, 1 in washer)
~wash dishes (left in a hurry this morning and didn't get them done)
~straw on trees, flowerbed, in doghouse (snow coming!)
~cover firewood (snow coming!)

~make a fire (do this first)
~project art - one new sketch, finish one sketch
~start soup? (Confer with husband on soup plan)
~Halloween wreath and monsters with Guppy.
~Unload car and repark
~Newsletter - Brains sale, new sampler, next Sketch Fest!

Note to self: binge-watch Flash is NOT one of these items. Do not get off track. No matter how tempting. Also, I dangerously noticed that Dark Matter has new episodes. And Arrow. And I haven't seen Luke Cage yet. NO BINGE-WATCHING, ELLEN.

Have another shot of Guppy from our walk a few days ago:



Okay, fire first, because fire makes warm makes happy makes work seem more fun.

<warm fuzzies>

Hoping that fire and productivity -- yay for a list almost all checked off -- have you feeling better.
