Rules: it’s time to love yourselves! choose your 5 favorite works you’ve created last year (fics, art, edits, etc) and link them below to reflect on the amazing things you’ve brought into the world in 2017. Tag as many writers/artists/etc as you want so we can spread the love and link each other to awesome work.
So apparently I have to choose 5 things I did last year that where my favorite and I am proud of somehow. Hm…
It is still not finished. I should continue writing it, but I am very proud of what I achieved at NaNoWriMo 2017… I laughed, I cried and I hated myself why things will happen how they are happening in the book. It was so much fun! And I really should finish the first book…
I am really trying to get better. In 2016 I had just my mobile camera and it was hard to learn how to pose your dolls, lighting and so on. But in 2017 – especially with the ADAW Project – I began to learn. And I am still learning. I don’t think I am all happy with what I do, there is always this little voice that says: you have to do better next time. But I will get there. But the pictures of 2017 pushed me to get better and I am proud of what I did last year. I also made and bought a photobucklet of my 2017 ADAW pictures so I can show them around xD
This is something I always wanted to do myself (or mostly myself). I love to draw and doodle since my childhood, so this is a perfect way express my creativity. I am not perfect or anyway good for any kind of commissions, but for my dolls I feel confident enough to do my own face ups and body blushing. 2017 I was able to do them more patience and they came out good.
4) Drawing/ Inktober
This was fun! I love to draw – and to read – but the last few years I almost did nothing. I had no time and no energy. I am fast tired and I sometimes lack of motivation. But somehow it was kind of easy to pull through Inktober and it was amazing to draw again… And I am not so bad like I thought I would be, after years of only small doodles. I think I should draw something after this post… or should I write?
This is not something really creative or something I made, this is something that is slowly changing – still changing – in myself. 2017 was my year of climbing out of the pit filled with little goblins holding me down, some nasty little creatures…
No seriously. I mentioned it before that I am not a very active human being and that my work kind of eats all my energy. I sometimes still have depressed days, but not as bad as some time or years ago. 2017 was okay and then really okay. I enjoyed what I did and how much I did. This is good for my selfesteem (which is low low) and of course my motivation to do something. Maybe I am not too old to change after all 🙂
“With the new day comes new strength and new thoughts.”
I would love to tag River and Yureya, since these two had a huge impact on my inspiration and motivation in 2017, not only as artists and creators, but mostly as great people I found here through my hobby.
