Tuesday with musings, again

More shopping, this time in the home&garden store. I really wanted a trowel that did not bend easily, and my mother wanted some other stuff, too.

Digitally speaking, I started backing up my drawings, which I'd last done, uh, 10 months ago. Photos are next. I'm still trying to decide if I should give cleaning up my small laptop priority. It would be a good idea if writing really is more pleasant on it...

Why Creative People Need to Be Eccentric suggests that 'slightly odd' habits one only indulges in while doing creative work (or just before starting it) are important to put one in the right "mindset" for creating regularly.

This clicks together with my suspicion that using a tablet as my main input device for the computer gets in the way of my drawing, since My mind associates holding a pen with being creative, and thus thinks I'm spending way more time being creative than is actually the case.

A sensical habit to develop: Put the tablet away. Works for both drawing (more room on the desk) and writing (it's not between me and the keyboard, thus typing gets more comfortable.)

And, yes, I realise putting the tablet away for drawing is a tad odd, but that's the way it is here.

My scroll was already slightly heavy on female dragons, and of the five dragons usable for breeding I picked up since getting back to the game, four turned female. I hope I can get my mitts on a male pink soon to help with the balance...
