You may have noticed that it's been a while since I posted here. I've made a few posts over at Bradley's Brain, but things have been pretty silent around here.
The truth is, I haven't felt like much of a writer recently.
I've still been writing a bit, and my creativity is still flowing, but my muse seems to be directing all of my energy to my other creative passion, art.
Drawing (and to a lesser degree, painting) is something I've been in love with almost as long as writing. They're both connected for me, and til now, I've never really had any trouble doing both.
It seems as though lately, when I sit down to write, the cursor blinks and blinks, threatening to put me to sleep with its steady cadence. Even those "Wow, I just had a great idea" moments have been fewer and fewer.
But when I pick up my pencils, my muse begins to sing again.
Here's something I've been working on during my lunch breaks for the past couple of days:
|Yes, I'm still obsessed with dragons...|
It's not anything truly special yet, but I'm happy with how it's turned out so far.
I'm sad because the words haven't been flowing very well, but I'm also happy that I'm drawing more (and more effectively, I believe) than I have in a long while.
Writing and art have always been two sides of the same creative coin to me, and I do think that eventually, the written side will turn up again.
But for right now, even though I have been writing, the spinning coin has landed image side up.
I might as well enjoy the ride.
As usual, thanks for stepping into my imagination,
