Oof. The Inktober hangover is real. I kept drawing for a little while after my full 31 day stint in 2019 but was never the same 😂 I definitely gave up drawing for awhile soon thereafter. In the same vein as your Creator Compass, it’s crucial to determine your valiant goal... Your sincere why. “To complete something grueling” is a recipe for burnout (I’ve been such a glutton for punishment!) “To get discovered” makes my heart hurt. Success is contingent on others. But “To get better at drawing [people/architecture/food/cats/etc]” would be more sustainable, helpful, and satisfying. I’m still on the fence about joining, but reframing the month in this way eases the “trauma” a bit.
