So...some of you may have noticed that the drawgs have been mildly sporadic as of late.
I've been doing the drawg thing for over two years now, having started just because my husband needed to use the computer when I wanted to blog. (Ah, the days of having only one computer in the house!) Since then, I've drawn over 50 blogs (including any guest posts that you might find floating around the interwebs) and lost a few more due to fickle computers. It can be pretty time consuming as opposed to a typed blog, but it's incredibly fun. I LOVE drawing and I enjoy writing and any combination of the two is just a barrel of quiggily giggles for me. (and if this were a drawg, there'd be a drawing of a barrel of quiggily giggles, which sounds weird now, but if you saw the drawing you'd totally know what I meant.)
However, since starting the 365 Days of Drawing challenge over at my art blog, drawgging has been lagging. And the CRAZY thing is that I feel strangely guilty when I want to type something out here, as if drawgging is the only reason this blog should exist. Which is wrong, right? There's more I can offer this world besides snarky unicorn drawings, YES?? (Don't answer that.) (okay, insert drawing of surly unicorn)
So please forgive the lack of surly unicorn drawings, at least for this week. If you're dying for silly sketches, you can always check out my quibblies here or my group art blog, Anthdrawlogy! If you're looking for a nice little random tumblr to follow, you can drop in on mine, too. I won't fight you, I promise. And writing? Well, we over at the Alliterati Archives will be able to tickle your brain come February 1st when we start up again.
You know, I'm not as open about my writing projects/successes and failures as a lot of my writing friends are and I apologize for that. Besides my crit groups (and the few people who read that interview I did that one time) not many know what I'm even working on. I guess I'm torn between not wanting to spoil the good news and wanting to whine about the bad news. So I do neither and end up drawing pictures of me "researching" just to cover it up. But if anyone has any specific questions, know that I'm more than willing to answer them! Even if it means doing so in a surly unicorn's voice. (insert yet another drawing of surly unicorn. I've got them in SPADES, people.)
In the meantime, my dear squirmy daughter is down for a nap (ha!
Kidding. I just heard a scream.) which means I'm back to writing and
making up excuses why I'm not at the gym. (Drawing of me shouting: It's snowing! The gym's broken! I just ate a cheesecake and it has to settle! Might look suspiciously like Cathy. Ack!!)
You guys are the best, and I really mean that. Thank you for your support and love and comments and virtual cookies. Communities are nothing without great people and we've got them in spades! (insert drawing of a spade and me admitting I really don't know what that idiom means)
(Okay fine. I'll do a real drawg next week.)
