Returning from Inktober

-- Thank You For Coming Back --

As a quick confession, I've written this blog to publish a few times, but had yet to get round to actually publishing one of the updates. As insight I've been writing another blog since week two, but with Inktober and life events, i didn't have much time.

As a reflection, I genuinely feel like I improved in all sorts of areas. Mostly with my ability to just sit down and get a job done. I've always had the want to motivate past any creative hesitation, but this month that has just passed was by far the most effective way to get into that mindset on a more reliable basis.

It did however mean that Imitation Dei's production was a tiny bit neglected. I didn't want it to be, but I knew how important Inktober was to me at the time. If there was one thing I wanted to do, it was prove that given the situation, I can put stuff out there in such a short time frame.

Also just before we move on, the comic strip is on a break this week, but is set to return next Monday as usual.

-- The Next Adventure --

Speaking of short timeframes, I've not exactly been anything other than busy with a script writing contest this weekend. The contest is held by NYC Midnight and was something I had also entered earlier in the year for a slightly different contest.

For this current event, it's all about writing a short film script with the short space of 48 hours. We at least get 2 rounds to work through, each one with a random genre, place and object. This time around it was Horror, Planetarium and Vacuum cleaner for me.

At first I didn't think I could make much from it all, with the object being at odds with how I could ever envision anything scary (It's not exactly something I dwell on all that much to be fair.) but eventually an idea surfaced.

It's as good as I genuinely think a 48 hour script of mine could be, I've looked into uploading it here, but currently there doesn't seem to be a great way of doing that. That said a future plan is to create a script archive of sorts, so here's hoping that's something we can see later this year or early next year.
