I love social media challenges. 30-day Instagram prompts or one-word prompts, Meet The Author prompts, etc. Inktober is no exception. Especially since I love art, looking at it and buying it and adding it my wish list.
Every year for the past few years now a Writetober challenge has been released. The idea is to write one 50-word story a day and include the word from that prompt.
This year I am (finally?) combing the two. My default is to say that I’m an overachiever. I mean, I decided this last minute. I didn’t write either of the prompts down ahead of time. Or plan anything out before. My time could better be spent prepping for NanNoWriMo. I did just start a new part-time job last week, and Ant and I are finally feeling better and settling back into a new routine of home life.
But really, I’m tired of overthinking what to post on my social media accounts.
Trip related or not trip related or life related or just a for fun post that I want to exist on my feed because I want it to. And so I’m just combining my enjoyment of doodling and writing stories and sharing them on my writergram.
So here is a peek into my sketches for last week’s and this week’s prompts. Enjoy!

The spiderwebs and spiders were a just for fun doodle 🙂
A peek at this week’s doodles:
Josephine the armadillo is from last week, but I didn’t want her to be on the page all alone, so she joined this week’s doodles.
Let’s be brave enough to share our work-in-progresses and out favorite lines and scenes and doodles that don’t make the cut, but still took some of our time a piece of our heart and soul and mind to create.
