 Well, I've gone 12 days without playing Hearthstone. I've sketched a couple of times, which is nice. I've also done more reading than I had previously (even though my 'reading list' posts might not show it - I've been reading books which would normally take me a lot more time). 

I've upped the ante. For the last 3 days, the rule has been no more fountain pen websites & forums (boo that fora is no longer the preferred term), and no more watch websites (or fora. HA I DO WHAT I WANT), either. Both will come up in my instagram, twitter, and facebook feeds, but those are timesucks in and of themselves that I will deal with when I'm ready, and I feel they are different (in the way that I interact with them).

Let's see what happens!

Apropos of this nugget of nerdfitness, I've decided to lay off Hearthstone for a while.

Those of you who know me know that I tend to obsess (ahem OBSESS) about things when I become interested in them, and this game/timesuck is the latest in a long line of things that take up way too much time that could be used by other things.

Amy pointed the article out to me last week, but it was really driven home this weekend. My cousin, a fantastic artist, was telling me that she always looked up to me, and that I was an artistic inspiration. And I had to think hard about the last time I even sketched. Yikes.

I won't guarantee that my artistic output will blossom, but I do know that my time is better utilized.

Wow! I first learned about Kowloon Walled City in a William Gibson novel (Virtual Light, I think) and have always found it fascinating.  These cross-sections are really cool!

 Everybody already knows about Kate Beaton's comics, right? This set about Edward, The Black Prince, really tickles my fancy.
