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 (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…
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!
