I spent much of the morning working on a poster that I was hoping to finish today, but didn’t quite get there. It’s a simple illustration largely inspired by the Studio Ghibli film, The Wind Rises, which I just watched this weekend.
I also finished Dan Brown’s (author of the Da Vinci Code) MasterClass today. He talked a lot about the process of writing in his final lesson. The importance of ritual and routine in successful writing. For me, that started with this blog – having this be a place where I write everyday. I feel, though, that this is potentially taking away from my larger project and goal of writing a novel. Perhaps I need to more diligently allocate time every day to that project more specifically.
