I’ve had a productive couple of days. Both writing wise and hobbywise. I managed to get a base scheme done for my Lizardmen Army, so I now have a few (badly painted) yellow skinks on snow bases. I would offer to take pictures, but the painting on the skinks really is terrible. They’re some of my first models so it’s understandable! (What isn’t understandable is the fact it took me so long to base them)
And I managed to write two chapters of Born to Die, so I am now on Chapter 8, soon the shit will start hitting the fan and things will be fun for the guys and girls of the 412th!
I’m already thinking of another story with an expanded character list involving the Aris 412th… we shall see. Maybe I will be able to get the first one finished!
I hope everyone has good plans for the New Year.
I’ve kinda made my resolutions.
Mostly to be more positive.
To do something creative at least once a day, even if it’s just a sketch or to write a short conversational fiction, or something hobby related.
I felt so stagnant and stale at the end of last year. I won’t point fingers and say why; but with certain pressures relieved I feel that I can move on and become more than I used to be. No more chains. The only thing that can hold me back now is me; and I really don’t see the point in doing that.
I’ve needed the “I can do this,” attitude for some time, and it’ll come eventually.
As a part of this needing to be more positive thing, I decided to take an empt jar out of the cupboard and every time I feel like I have done something worth while I am going to write what it is and put it in this jar. So I can see the good things growing throughout the year. Then at the end of the year, I can look back at all the things I’ve achieved; and do it all over again.
