NaNoWriMo Day 10 – Stick Animals

I have to confess I wrote nothing today. Zip. Nada. Zilch. I had an all-day conference to attend for my day-job, which was very interesting but didn’t really allow any downtime from interacting with other professionals in my field, so by the time I got home and had dinner, I was mentally drained. So, rather than stare at a blank screen for an hour, I got out a little sketchbook and fineliners and drew stick people. And stick animals. It’s interesting to see how many different, identifiable animals you can draw, just by varying the proportions of limbs and body and changing the shape of the head, ears and tail.

My and my Muse are now feeling rested, so hopefully tomorrow will be more productive on the word count front!


In rebooting my blog, I’ve omitted a lot of the more trivial entries, but this post was really popular for some reason, coming consistently high up in my search hits, so I thought it deserved a few more years’ life!
