Remember when I said I should try drawing more when I’m not feeling great and nothing else was helping? Well, I had a sad art day last weekend and drew sketches of random Pokemon from one of my old strategy guides. I didn’t think I’d do anything with it, let alone post it. But here we are.
I know this usually isn’t what I post, but I don’t think I have it in me to write about a random topic in more depth this week. To tell the truth, I’ve been thinking about uploading art for those weeks when I don’t feel like I can write well about something else. I want to contribute something each week, but at the same time I don’t want to write half-assed articles on whatever’s been on my mind. So I’m considering this as an alternative. Granted, it’s not like I’m going to draw something for the blog each week. I love writing here. It’s really helped me improve as a writer, as well as keep me on track when I get distracted or lazy with fiction. At the moment, I still want to primarily write on my blog. But sometimes I feel like I’m picking topics out of the bottom of my ideas barrel. And for those weeks, or weeks when I’m very busy, or weeks when I don’t have it in me for whatever reason, I’d like to know I have something besides my writing to contribute. So that might be something that’ll be happening around here.
Besides, the blog’s called Some Type of Artist, right? I kind of feel like there should be more… art. And yeah, there’s a lot of types of art, and writing is a form of art… ugh, never mind. 🙂
So I guess that’s kind of what I wanted to say right now. I know I don’t normally address my readers directly, but I just passed 50 followers, so I may try doing it more often. I know 50’s probably not a big deal, but I didn’t think anyone would even read this blog when I first started it, or at least not this many. And whether you’re a regular reader, a casual one, or an inactive account, 50 people decided they liked my writing enough to want to follow me. And I dunno. That’s, like… a lot of people, when you think about it. Like… that’s two classrooms full of people. And that’s not including non-followers who took the time to read my stuff and leave a like. And I’ll admit, when I write or rant about something each week and I see some people liked it or started following me, sometimes it makes my day. Sometimes it makes my week. So thanks.
Okay, so I guess now that’s all of what I wanted to say. Hope everyone’s having a good week! 🙂
