Inktober is Over… So, Watercolor!


So Inktober is officially past BUT there is a great assortment of videos from The Mind of Watercolor that deals not only with ink but watercolor, as well. The videos from Steve Mitchell is vast and highly informative, as well as entertaining. I love watching him sketch, ink, and create watercolor art in various formats. Here’s a sample below:

What’s Missing in Your Writing?

Short and to the point post: Music.

If you haven’t found a song or songs to listen to that inspire you, you’re missing out. From your favorite bands, artists, or even soundtracks, all music, even instrumental, has some story to tell. Let those stories and those emotions fuel your imagination.

I don’t always listen to the music while I’m writing but rather while I’m planning and outlining. Then again, depending, if the music is in perfect line with the scene I’m writing, I’ll keep it going.

Recommendation: Scores from your favorite movies or favorite genre that you write in. Personally, I love Two Steps from Hell and music that YouTuber, Epic Music Shall Prevail posts. They’re providing the music and I’m providing the scenes. It’s a win-win.
