The biggest pain in the world. Even if I HAVE the time to work on something, it's like my creative abilities have drained from my body. It's very frustrating, especially with limited art time as it is.
I have, however, had an enormous literary streak. Haven't made much progress because of homework and 3 minions I've been babysitting 24/7 for the past week and a half (and will continue to until I get a real job or move, I guess) but all the same it's been nice to finally nail down some groundwork for my novel I've literally been working on most my life and I feel really confident with this one. I've given myself so much time to knock it around and work it out. It's really evolved into something I'm proud of, and I'm not embarrassed to share it with anyone, though, for obvious reasons, it's being kept mostly under lock and key.
I don't feel like I'm proving anything to anyone, it just feels like I'm expressing my own life and personality through this amazing tale of someone so different yet so the same. I don't expect most people to get it, even family and friends, but the story is based very heavily on my own life. Hard to tell when you don't know how the hell my brain works, especially when it's on another planet in another universe and her life is pretty freaking different and fantastical. Regardless of that, every person, every emotion and heartbreak and battle is etched out of my own experience internally. And a little externally.
It's become one hell of a roller-coaster ride.
Anywhosey-daisy, it's just book one and I have no idea how long it'll take to finish, or publish, or how many more there will be. It's a long story, but it's going to happen. I refuse to be the sad old lady who never wrote that amazing story she always reveled in and followed her dreams. It's going to freaking happen.
Anyway, back to the art block - it makes no sense. I have SO MUCH creative juice in me and it just... bah... like a popped balloon... so sad... I'm listening to constant Imagine Dragons to try to fix that. It makes me ooze creativity. OOOOZE.
I'm gonna go finish this chapter so I can go to bed, heathens will be waking me up early, no doubt.
