How’s the work week going for you all? Is it hectic, is it laid back, or is it one of those horrible weeks that you’d like to go back in time and erase with a magic eraser?
If it’s good, enjoy it. Such moments (especially at the workplace) don’t last for long. If it’s bad, take heart. Nothing in this world lasts forever; this too shall pass.
So I was in an artsy mood yesterday but my imagination wasn’t ready to cooperate with my hands. So I made several quick watercolour sketches only to throw them in the trash. And then my sketch notepad revealed this little sketch that I’d done last year.
I had meant to add some more details to it, but back then I didn’t have the time. Yesterday when I looked at it I felt that I didn’t need to add anything to it. Of course, it can be improved upon, for example, the contours of the face may be better defined; that eye on the left could be redone because she looks like she’s squinting, but I like it better with just the bare minimum lines and all the flaws. For we are flawed, aren’t we? The flaws in her are a snub to the vanity of beauty, which itself is ever waning from the moment it is birthed.
So tell me how this one is. Do you think I’ve improved? Do you think I’m wasting time? Or if this evokes some other thoughts in you, lemme know through the comments section below. I’m all ears!
Yeasterday, on my Twitter handle, I had posted a poll asking writers to tell me what they liked to do when they lost interest in writing the boring bits of their own books.
Here’s the link to the poll.
You have a whole day still to vote. Please vote and discuss why you made that choice. This will help writers to understand what they could do when they get stuck in the process of writing all those tiny, little, common things that need to link the story together into one seamless whole.
Tomorrow I will be posting a Review of Dan Brown’s latest book – Origin. So be sure to tune in tomorrow to read the same.
Till then, au revoir and have a happy Tuesday!
