What an active month! Design, illustration and writing!
I have joined another facebook group for the month of October - #inktober and it's purely ink drawn work... daily and international. So, like doodle day, it has been a wonderful opportunity to see the work of like-minded people, although it doesn't warrant as much comment as the doodle day group. The thing I really like about these groups is that other than the very rare occasion that someone is 'peddling' their work non-stop, you can just look at people's work, ask questions, and it feels very much a support network with no strings attached. The 'peddling' souls are to a large extent ignored.
On top of this, I've taken time out to join a writers group here in Brisbane - Write Links - and as with the other two, it's like minded people who's main goal is not to 'peddle' their popularity or wares, but to talk and share events, ideas and critique. This group meet up as well as have a facebook group - that's important really... there are 'faces' behind so many of these books, and it's such a learning experience, I feel pretty lucky by being invited to join.
I had my stories published in May in a local book, and so I re-read it, I'm certainly going to have to do some editing before I present any of my writings.
This is an active month of pushing through ideas, and learning. From next month, I want to take my doodles, and put more effort into finished pieces.
I also have set myself a personal challenge of character development through ages 2 -16... yes, this is a busy month!
