Scheduling Creation: Day 192

Alien City Drawing

I was hoping to get some Photoshopping done today, but that just wasn’t going to happen. So for today, I went to town on adding detail to this drawing on paper rather than doing the Photoshop thing. Lo and behold, it’s turning out pretty great.

I seem to be making a bit of a habit of getting started on my drawing pretty late in the day. Then when I go to post my drawing, it’s so late in the day it takes me forever to think of something I can properly put into words. Something might need to change.

I wonder if I should set a specific time of the day when I sit down and force myself to do my artwork, and then post and share it directly afterwards. It feels like every other week I struggle a bit with getting my work complete at a decent hour. I think that getting started on it when I’m not particularly in a creative mood would be a serious drawback though. I mean, I find it difficult to feel creative when I have other things on my plate for that day. It’s not until I get my daily activities and chores out of the way that I can really focus on my drawing and writing. Which happens to be right at the end of the day. It’s just lately it seems to be really late by the time I get things posted, and I definitely don’t get as many viewers as I do when I post in the early afternoon.

At this moment, I’m not sure how to go about “fixing” this. But I’m also not entirely sure that anything really needs fixing. I’ll give it another day or so and see how I’m feeling. The more people that can see my content the better, as it should potentially lead to more opportunities. That’s the way I’m thinking about it anyways. So the earlier I post, the more people seem to view my content, essentially.

One other thing I want to kind of casually mention, is the fact that I’m really happy I’m about to hit my 200th day of drawing, posting, and sharing in a row. When I’m old, I don’t want to look back and wish I did things differently. I think that will probably happen to everyone to matter what, but at least as far as my only natural talent is concerned, I want to know for sure that I did everything possible to help myself succeed. At this moment, I really do feel that I am all over the Internet, and have built up a decent portfolio, and a decent following as well.

As of right now, I don’t sell any work, and I don’t get new followers on a daily basis, but it seems that my reach, if you will, is substantial enough that about once or twice every few months an opportunity arises that I can take advantage of. So, no regrets so far!
