WHAT I'M READING
I forgot to mention that I'm reading a bunch of stories for a collaborative fiction anthology. I keep feeling like I'm not reading when I'm not reading a book, but yes, I am reading many stories right now. Also commenting on said stories. I am reading people!
WHAT I'M WRITING/DRAWING
So many things this week! I'm finishing a portrait, finishing my final images (and scanning them in) for my picture book package, sketching up a new dummy (hopefully one final on this at least started!) or two, finishing up a collaborative coloring book, and doing a million other things that would be boring!

WHAT WORKS FOR ME
Drinking coffee until I literally can't see straight.
WHAT ELSE IS NEW
Husband off this week so he's watching the kid a lot. Which means I'm doing more work on other things.
Not feeling great this week. Had my first ocular migraine. It didn't hurt, but I couldn't see well for 30 mins!
