I’ve been thinking a lot about ‘voice’ and ‘style’ lately, in photography and in writing.
I knew going in that April wasn’t going to be a very productive month. There were a million little disruptions to my schedule (this is actually the first full, uninterrupted week I’ve had this month), but I’d planned for them, and I’ve (mostly) been able to work around them.
The story outlines are progressing nicely; I still really love having two different projects on the go. It slows both of them down, of course, but it’s fantastic being able to switch from one to the other when inspiration starts to flag. (And inspiration always starts to flag at some point. It’s inevitable.) For now, I’ve pretty much abandoned the daily freewriting that I was trying – I still haven’t found a way to make it work.
And I’m still looking for another writing project, something low-pressure to work on in my downtime, and that doesn’t require months of world building and outlining. It’s… surprisingly difficult. I’ve got a few ideas, but nothing that’s quite clicked for me yet.
But, yeah: it’s been a pretty good month, despite everything.
So… I’ve kind of been playing with a theme this week.
The last two weeks have been… more productive than I expected they’d be, actually. I’ve been: loving | thinking | baking | noticing | eating | planning | working | playing | chopping | looking
Now I’m starting to have fun.
So… apparently I’m playing with plain white backgrounds lately? It’s not really intentional, but I don’t mind.
Ok! The last two weeks, I’ve been: fixing | working | having | running | re-watching | finalizing | doing | looking | playing | making
This… wasn’t my best week.
