My mind is constantly thinking in which I’m constantly stressing myself out over everything. I’m also a scattered type in which one thought leads to another and I’m all over the place. Which makes it difficult in writing an actual book because I quickly flake off into another character and spin it into another story. In which finishing a book becomes impossible. Which is why I’m often seeking ways to let my mind relax and just sort of take off without worrying about the outcome. That’s why I often turn to drawing. I just take pencil to paper and draw lines and often add eyes to places my mind sees faces. I’ve been experimenting with color in my drawings rather than sticking to black, white, and grays. The drawings below are drawings I’ve made using the whatever happens, happens technique. The technique helps me de-stress and not be so hard on myself. I place a substantial amount of pressure upon my stories which is another reason I always quit several pages in because the idea of failing at writing is horrifying because it’s one of the few things I have a passion for.
Thanks for reading.
