Day 74: Another day off?
I’ve been thinking I could have a day off today as it seems that I’ve completed my tasks for the week.
I don’t know if I will bother starting that new painting like I mentioned before. I might just take the canvas out of the cupboard though to have a look at it and see if the composition that I have in my mind will actually fit it or not.
My sister did suggest to me that I could just spend the day doing some doodles of sketches and chill. I think that sounds like a great idea. I have a few sketchbooks that I’m working on at the moment and I’d love to complete them soon.
Depending on how good the lighting is I may even try and do some recording while I’m sketching. Then I will have more footage to edit later next month Insha Allah (God willing) for my YouTube channel.
I have less than a month of this 100-day blog challenge to go and in order to really stay on top of things and not fall behind I have made it my top priority at the start of my day on my list of things to do.
I’ve learned that even though its only supposed to be a 20-minute task if I don’t do it before any other work, I quickly get distracted from writing it at all and then I end up struggling at the end of the day to write anything.
I think I definitely write a lot better in the morning. Technically I’m not a morning person I’m more of a night wolf but that just means my mornings are a lot earlier than everyone else’s because I haven’t yet slept.
It’s the time that I have a ton of ideas floating around in my mind and I really find it so much easier to put thoughts out into words.
This week I have ahead of me is my scheduled blog writing week for my new blog that I hope to launch by the end of the month Insha Allah so I really have much writing to do. So I think that I’ll most likely have a lot of late mornings just writing. But that good as long as I can get the bulk of it out of the way.
I will really do my best to relax tomorrow. Its kind of hard for me to do unless I’m sleeping or sick actually because I always have to be doing something but then I find a lot of activities relaxing so I suppose it still counts.
I might even read a book actually. If I don’t read I actually have two audio books that I’m in the middle of listening to so I think that will be a good idea to complete those. I got that audible app so I suppose I should make the most of it otherwise what’s the point?
I can listen to the rest of at least one book while I do some sketching in my roses sketchbook. I so desperately want to complete those drawings too. It would be nice to finish filming them and complete my YouTube playlist of them.
Actually on that note I’m glad I mentioned them. I was thinking to myself the other day that maybe having that playlist of rose drawings might not be a good idea, or maybe its boring because who wants to watch me drawing roses and patterns and stuff?
How silly of me! I watch people drawing doodle and flower drawings on YouTube all the time and I find it so entertaining and relaxing. Even if I don’t pay attention the whole thing I still like to watch and see the progress and the finished outcome.
I have been varying the videos so that some are time lapse and others are in real time, so then for people who prefer the sped up version there’s plenty of those going.
I currently don’t have too many followers on my art channel on YouTube and I suppose that could a be a good thing while I find my bearings. The main thing for me right now is that I remain consistent and keep posting regular art videos which are of a decent quality.
I have so many ideas of things that I would like to upload including engraving tiles. I think I mentioned that in a previous post. I think by the time I get round to doing any engraving I wont be doing this challenge anymore but if I’m a good girl I can still make a blog post about it to go with the YouTube video that I’ll be making Insha Allah.
