Let's Talk About Inktober

I finished Inktober 2018 and created 31 unique hand lettering compositions using Procreate. - Image shows various pieces created during October



One of my goals for 2018 was to complete Inktober and knowing I had to wait until October meant I was rather eager to get stuck in on October 1st. I did go on holiday during the last week of October and, although I did take my iPad with me, I wasn't going to pressure myself to get it done every day because frankly, I barely had time to sit down we did so much. So once I was back I used the next few days of November to finish as if it was still October. Some people may see this as cheating but personally, I still feel like I did it fine because hey at least I finished!

What If It's Us by Becky Albertalli & Adam Silvera | Review

Book review of What If It's Us by Beck Albertalli and Adam Silvera. -  Kindle version shown on a phone.

I went into What If It's Us* without really knowing what it was about. Not reading the blurb and just jumping right in has become quite a habit for me with Young Adult books but so far it’s mostly working out for me! All I knew was that the authors were good and had written well known 5-star books before. However, at the time I’d only read Becky Albertalli’s book Love, Simon (Simon vs the Homosapien Agenda) before and none of Adam Silvera's books so I wasn't completely sold on the fact I'd love it.
