Stop! Project-time!

November awaits just around the corner of this week, and traditionally, in November I do Nanowrimo. Okay, not every year, most years since 2001 or so. This year I decided to participate again and I have not started anything yet. I’ll see where it takes me.

I’ve also registered for the Sketchbookproject 2012 and hopefully this year I’ll get the notebook in time so I can do a little bit often and fill the whole thing up :)

Looking forward to both projects.


Little books

Filled up IBC003 and started IBC004

I have filled up three little books with my`Inkblobs <http://inkblobs.nl>`__. The fourth has the writing on the outside and no drawings yet.

I think I’ll fill it up pretty soon and then on to the fifth. And a sixth, and probably a seventh and so on.

Clearing out my bookshelves, just in case I have lots of them next year. One has to prepare for these things :)


Another year, another Nanowrimo

November lurks around the corner, so I had to join Nanowrimo again. I decided to try a different approach this year and have slowly outlined my planned novel. Initially I wanted to go for horror, with brutal murders and such (I blame this on watching the entire ‘Friday the 13th‘ series, as well as ‘Nightmare on Elmstreet‘, and ending it with ‘Freddy vs Jason‘), but my story seems to have converted more into a regular thriller with no supernatural murderer.

Ah well.

And it’ll have a dog.


Make your handwriting into a font.

As long as I’ve had a computer I wanted to turn my handwriting into a font. I made some attempts to do so, but they failed due to lack of proper programs. Today I stumbled upon yourfonts.com ( through Drawn! ) and they offer just that.

Print out the form, fill it it, scan, upload and downnload your font. It took about 15 minutes in total. And it looks so cool :D
