Day #1: Let the Challenges BEGIN!

It is November 1st,
that means all the challenges I blogged about have begun!

I'm happy to say, I haven't failed on Day 1, lol!

I wrote my 2,000 words for the day, 
I did a sketch,
and I thought up a Picture Book idea!

I'm not going to bore you with the 2,000 words,
but I'm writing 2,000 words in a new story every day (a twist on conventional NaNoWriMo)
So here is the first line from my first story:
The back corner of the fourth floor in the campus library is Marjorie’s favorite spot in the entire world. 

but here's my SkADaMo entry:
 This sketch is called: 
Please tell me I'm not the only ginger with invisible eyebrows.
LOL. It's something I think about too often.

And here's my PiBoIdMo entry:

The Adventures of Will and Crumb
(yes, these are my cats)

I'm sure I have "Awesome cat syndrome"... which is something all cat owners probably have,
but I think these two are comical and interesting.
I did a few little sketches to go along with the idea.

Will is black, Crumb is big and fluffy... the picture of him crying is
how he looks after we give him the Lion Cut. MWA HA!


  1. nope... you aren't the only ginger with invisible eyebrows and eyelashes(?).... so jealous of my grand daughter, she has matching ginger eyebrows and black (!) eyelashes!!

    1. Haha! I have the invisible eyelashes, but they're really long, so when I use mascara, they are decent, LOL!

  2. No, you're not. My bestie has invisible eyebrows! Glad to meet a fellow skadamoer!

    1. Likewise!

      And yes... it is our curse, the lack of expression is unnerving... (haha, not really, but that's how I always imagine it)

  3. Your sketch title made me laugh. 'Love your logo.

    1. Thank you! That Logo went through a lot of edits XD It started out completely different!

  4. Fun! I esp like the kitty bottom left and bottom right! And I so feel for Lion Cut Crumb!

    1. Thank you! Yes... Lion Cut Crumb is a very sad creature. Hehehehe.

  5. You are keeping yourself busy. I love the cat sketches. Yes I too have awesome cats :) They are such great sources of sketching inspiration. I love the one of Crumb growling... so cute.

    1. Yeah, cats are total characters... I always thought, "Oh, writing about my pets is probably really dumb..." but then I think about Steven Kellogg, and Pinkerton and Rose... and I say, "Aw, to heck with it, I'm doing it!" I'll never match his greatness, but I think it's a good thing to not hold yourself back.
