I've been busy arting! And reading... and of course playing video games.
|My first digital painting!|
Apparently -- nerdiness, creativity, and fandom seem to be intricately linked for me.
It's funny, I haven't loved anything as wholly and completely as I am loving Dragon Age Inquisition since I was a teenager, and being immersed in a fandom again led me to the 'normal' fan activities -- fan fiction of course, and fan art.
In the last three or so months I have shunned my usual social media: pinterest, facebook, and instagram, in favor of Tumblr. I have stopped reading Gawker and the newspaper and started reading books instead. And I've started feeling something I honestly haven't felt since before I started University -- creative.
I've written a short story, started a novel, read four books, and completed three paintings. I attended a writing conference, and I bought a new laptop to hook up to my art tablet. Unplugging from many of the time sucks on the internet has allowed me to make more time for creativity and it's been great!

I fully intend to continue blogging here of course, Light a Candle is the story of my life and I consider it a documentation of what's going on at any given time -- but posting will likely remain infrequent as I continue to devote every spare minute I can to digital painting and writing. I wanna get good guys, really good, and that drive has been sadly lacking from my life for too long.
If you want to hear from me more often, you can check out one of my three Tumblr blogs:
My personal Tumblr (mostly Dragon Age Fandom), my writing Tumblr, and my art Tumblr.
I do have a couple of personal updates and outfits in store for the next couple months, and I'm considering writing some book reviews to compliment my renewed interest in reading.
Till next time friends!
