1. Write an “October Goals” post.
2. Make that post a GIF post.
3. Finish planning my Nanowrimo novel.
I know some people say that planning doesn’t work or blah blah blah…but as someone who can never decide what to write about, I find it helpful. So far, things are going okay, but I need to iron out a couple of details and pick theme music for each part. (I know that sounds incredibly OCD but 1) I think I have a minor form of OCD so it’s normal for me and 2) it saves time so that you don’t spend an hour finding the perfect music. I’m busy this year.)
4. Get going in animation.
If you want to know how traditional Disney animation worked, here’s an epic video. It will help the following paragraph make sense.
Theoretically, I could continue forever in my physical pencil and paper state, but here’s the thing. I can only do so much. With a drawing tablet and some Adobe CC Animate, though, the inking, painting, backgrounds and all that will become SOOO much easier. I’ll be able to start work on the projects I’ve been thinking about.
5. Word War with Ava
Ava and some other blogfriends and I were going to do a Word War, but it kind of fell through, so we just decided to do a collab story. Anyone is still welcome to join, though.
6. Get a Wreck This Journal.
These look like so much fun. And I have always wanted one.
7. Finish all the books I need to read for school.
Silas Marner, Mornings on Horseback, Treasure Island, The Wealth of Nations….yeah I’m busy.
8. Learn some new jokes.
9. Write out all the posts that I’ve been meaning to post for a long time.
Procrastination is the only option, Li Sheng. The only option.
10. Fufill all these goals.
“You just wanted ten, didn’t you…”
What are some goals you’re striving for this October?
