Another vlog means another end of a month; these are my November thoughts. This time, I officially say goodbye to a good month, November.

This month, I set out to accomplish a number of things.

  • Join Folktale Week
  • Join Huevember and Nomvember (by Joy San @ snarkytuna)
  • Possibly have a piece for NaNoWriMo
  • Continue drafting my comic (The Bird Song)
  • Have videos for YouTube

The fifth goal is a bit of every week, every month goal, and I like to remind myself of this because I haven’t gotten to the habit of regularly creating them.

I can happily say that I accomplished every one of my goals this month without having some sort of mental breakdown or mental block which often happens to me.

More November Thoughts

If you’re new to my blogs, you can find out more about the mental struggles I go through here.

November, I first began the month by going through plans for my art challenges. I came up with the idea focused on my novel Listening to Georgiana. I realized that I could do something for NaNoWriMo using the same base. Knowing I wouldn’t have the time to accomplish the 50,000 word count, writing short stories became a good compromise.

So, the project became this: 

The real challenge was being able to incorporate each part seamlessly. Strangely enough, the ideas came easily to me. I was able to sketch out the four pieces I would be doing. Deciding that there was no way I could do an everyday post like for Inktober. I wouldn’t want to put myself in that position again. 

And while I was creating the second piece for that challenge, I was also tackling Folktale week which I didn’t make a post about but in the vlog I talk about it. SO, without further ado… here’s the video!

As for the last two goals, I was able to accomplish them but definitely at my own pace. I was only able to do 3 Friday videos but considering the amount of artwork I was pushing out, I feel pretty good with the 3 I made. Unfortunately, I feel that I could’ve done better for TBS. However, I accomplished quite a lot!

For this month, December- here are my goals.

  • finish November paintings
  • edit website
  • open store!!!
  • finish drafting TBS comic
  • complete commissions

I’ll see you guys in my next post.
