Odds, Ends and Ink

I have been trying to write some of this post for two days now but I’m swamped at work and it doesn’t end when I get home. I managed to get dinner in the crockpot this morning and write my 6 words but I arrived a little early at work so I have a moment to write.

Can you believe it’s been 4 years since I registered my blog? 4? Where did all this time go? I haven’t been writing an entire 4 years but looking back I’ve been through a lot and glad that everyone has been with me on my journey and given such great advice, warm comments, and awesome support. Thank you, everyone.

As you know I’ve been kicking around the idea of participating in Inktober. I have been really intimidated by all the people that I see posting amazing thumbnails that they haven’t even inked yet. Another factor adding to me nervousness is that I have never work in ink. Watercolor, acrylic, graphite, and even charcoal, yes but ink, no. I have some India ink that I have never used and will be using that. I need to get a couple of different brushes and markers, notebook, and a large pad. The friend that needed to talk the other morning has really opened up and has been using the pens that I got for her. I asked her if she would like to do Inktober. Now, I have an accountability buddy but it benefits her as well. She has an idea of creating 31 days of ink drawings following a Halloween theme on one large paper. I’m in but I also want to do Inktober’s prompt list. What does that mean? Either I combine the two or do two separate. I don’t know which yet but a combining the two, for example, would give me the prompt of a poisonous ghost. How cool would that be? Or a tranquil devil?
