I am interested in coming on board this project as a writer. I do not need up-front payment (save your money for an artist), but we would definitely need to talk about rev-share once the team is assembled. I have written short stories and am working on my own comic at the moment. In addition, I am a journalist by trade, so have a ton of non-fiction writing under my belt.

ahhh sorry to hear that, I'm sure you can get into a good routine again. Annoying how stress can mess up our lives despite it being so intangible.

I've got about that much to lose in weight as well actually, although that's from covid lockdown >_<
It's being quite stubborn to go this time round >_<

Yeah, it's always ups and downs. I'm up 10 lbs this year (due to family stress I won't get into), but now the new year is coming and it's a new start. I gotta shed what I've gained and get back into the routine.

I had a lot of fun covering this one by Fleetwood Mac

At first i was terrified about immersion. I did before but in small amounts. Especially when playing games all day or reading /watching manga all day without eating or bathing. I have to delve in deeper than that. I just used a bit of mental "alchemy/transmutation" to help jump start the process (like using the same intensity for gaming etc and advancing it further).

Its difficult to shake and go back to other responsibilities in life. It makes me so single minded. Its better in time off mode but shuffling through other things while doing it is quite a task. But im doing it a little more fearlessly and giving myself time to return to reality.

"Remaining youth slipping away", this really hits. I havent experienced it though XD and im fighting to urge to feel that way although im wondering if its futile. I keep hearing people in their 30's talking about bodily pains and say that wouldnt happen to me. Im fighting  it  :ninja:

Maybe your sketch will be your long hair reality XD. Looks good. At one point i was wondering if my constant commentating was rubbing you the wrong way. Pressure and such. If i may when im dealing with pressure i try to give it a voice. Pressure in some cases  is like a manifestation of conscious/subconscious thoughts/understandings and when giving it voice makes it easier to understand what you are going through and help you understand self. maybe you do this as you do know yourself very well.

Being emotional to me can be a fun ride and then not so fun. The best way to harness an emotional side in my perspective is to apply some hard cold logic and harness the emotions with the fact that you may not be in control of how you feel but how long you feel it for.

self control and discipline is one of the greatest acts of self love.

I could just be saying nonsense.  :ohmy:

With your art schedule its good your doing what you want with it . Im thinking its probably in the effort to remind yourself that you are in control which you are and that's your freedom. So much good things can come from that.

well for me it's been a mixed bag lately, but I've kept up the running despite rain and cold, and now I'm finally on 5k runs. Still about 25% walking, but working on lowering that bit by bit until it's mostly running, and then just work on speed until I'm happy with my pace.
I'm thinking maybe once a week I'll try and run longer runs so that I'm always challenging myself, but really I just want general fitness, I don't want to be a runner specifically.

I've started doing weights more consistently as well, not very big ones, just enough to keep myself fit. I'm already starting to feel a bit more energetic although long term we'll see if that's just a placebo effect or not.

That sounds like a good work ethic of focusing on one story in turn, I did something similar a while back when I did several weekly comics at the same time XD

And immersion is definitely the way to go, you'll get a lot of progress in a short space of time if you're able to stay focused like that. I find it a little hard recently but I still have good periods where I'm in the zone :P

ehehehe I could do with a character growth arc round about now XD
I'm painfully aware of my remaining youth slipping away as I get older (I'm only 30 but I'm feeling it already XD) and I'm determined to make something of myself while I still have a lot of energy left.

Yeah generally I'm quite emotional so I get affected by lots of different stresses that others might be able to handle better than me. But mostly I manage to do something towards my goals, if only just a little.

I know I already said I won't do sketch survival again for a while, but my schedule has started to stabilize again, but I really don't want the pressure, so I'm just gonna post some random sketches on my own art thread each day, no particular commitment, but just something I'd like to do.

I'm still cracking through my other projects albeit quite slowly. Expect to see some progress in the new year definitely although if I'm lucky maybe a bit before.

Mostly I'm starting to try and tackle my huge pile of WIP sketches that have been stagnating the last 2 years, really haven't put much time into doing those.
