In October, I was busy drawing dragonflies some of you have already seen on my Facebook page or Instagram as I was taking part in the #Inktober challenge, but it didn’t mean that I forgot about the Wordwitch.
Ignoring the Whispers
That day, I woke up to a whisper in my head saying, “You will fail.” Yet, I got up, and had a very productive and creative day. Because strength isn’t about not having fears or doubts. It’s about working despite them.
So, sorry, evil whisper. The procrastigoblin will see you to the door now.

Sometimes, I disappear from social media. In case you’re wondering what’s going on, stage 2 is a safe bet.
Squirreling Ideas Away
This drawing was inspired by Jessa Kent (check her on Twitter: @JessaKent!) who found inspiration in one of my dragonflies and said she’d “squirrel it away”.
And she’s right: writers supposedly never run out of ideas, but we still store ALL OF THEM. You know, just in case.
Like every year for some time now, I carved a pumpkin, and stories are always brewing, no matter whether it’s Halloween or not.
