I can see that I haven’t been updating this diary as I’d like. One reason for this, I think, is my schedule.
As Saalon pointed out to me several weeks ago, one major flaw in my schedule is its lack of time dedicated to recharging myself creatively after I get home from work. I need some time every night to just relax, before I try to attack creative work like drawing or writing.
I tried this schedule last night, after I got home from dinner with my Grandmother, and it worked well. I didn’t try to do the work — Mondays are anime nights, and I’ve watched plenty of anime lately — but the schedule allowed me to relax and take care of miscellaneous little chores and fun projects. Drawing at night, just before bed, seems to be extraordinarily enjoyable, too. I can relax and just draw.
I finished reading the first book in Hayao Miyazaki’s epic manga Nausica
