The Wordwitch: A Writer’s Life in Pictures – February

The Wordwitch Cartoons Roundup

You might have noticed that I haven’t been around much lately, and this month’s Wordwitch post is late. It’s because I’m in the middle of preparing to move across the States. For the same reason, the February’s A Month in the Writer’s Life won’t be posted. I’ll tell you all about my adventures in a joint February-March post in the beginning of April. Thank you for your understanding!

But for now, I hope you’ll enjoy February’s compilation of the Wordwitch pictures.

The Wordwitch

The Wordwitch (which got its name thanks to Myk Pilgrim) is a series of drawings I started back in January 2017. At first, it was one image, but soon more ideas followed and my notebook filled with more pictures. As I just recently launched my Facebook Page, it seemed a good time to start sharing them.

These drawings appear weekly on Tuesdays, on social media under the #thewordwitch hashtag, and are a monthly roundup post here.

The Ultimate Procrastination Tool

If you’re wondering why I haven’t been around much… A week and a half ago Monster Hunter: World came out. Inq and I have been excitedly waiting for the game since June, so now we’re spending a lot of time enjoying it.
In the picture, Rathian, who has been my favorite wyvern ever since I started playing Monster Hunter series.

Melfka’s To-Do List

It seems that just recently I cleared my to-do list, but somehow new tasks are piling up again. And there’s even more on the horizon…

Cold Nothingness

This one was inspired by a conversation I had with J. Morgyn White: how doing something might create opportunities we hadn’t even imagined.
She said, “Sometimes you shoot for the stars and end up on the Moon.”
With my twisted sense of humor, I couldn’t help responding, “And sometimes you end up in cold nothingness.”

As much as such prospect might seem grim, this conversation still gets a chuckle out of me.

Can’t Do It Alone

I’m very lucky to have wonderful friends who support my writing. My husband, Inq, always listen to my ideas, a tireless cheerleader, and also my editor when I write in English. J.R. Bee Creations is always there when I need a beta-reader or just someone to bounce ideas, including spoiling a whole story when I need to discuss a plot hole. There are wonderful women from an online accountability group that over the past year had grown into something bigger – without them, I wouldn’t be writing half of the time I should.

There are others, too. All my beta-readers who spend time with my imperfect drafts, friends I’ve made over in 10 Minute Novelists group, and many more.

And there are you, who make this page a special place – a place where I can meet you all.

Writing might be somewhat alone endeavor, but being a writer isn’t. Thank you all!

  1. Cruel Nothingness… That is cruel, Joanna. Just… cruel. *lol*

    They’re all wonderful again, tbh. But if I had to choose a favorite, it would be a tie between the To-Do List and Can’t Do It Alone. Because, yes, that to-do list can just keep growing, and growing… and growing… And the other one is very sweet and incredibly true. It’s always good to have writer friends and other people who support you in your creative endeavors. I know I am grateful for those in my life. 🙂

  2. They are both delightful – and I’m guessing you being in the throes of packing means that the pictures are maybe a tad more autobiographical than is comfortable just now. Or maybe my phobic loathing of packing is influencing my reaction…
