Repostan what I wrote on Twatter, hopefully to someone's benefit:
INKTOBER MELTDOWN? KEEP IN MIND:
1 There is no punishment here but your own consciousness. Do it digitally, skip 3 days, disobey the prompts. Who's gonna arrest you? Not me. As long as you don't cheat yourself, all's fine.
2 There is no award either. Take it easy, enjoy the ride. You're doing it for yourself.
3 You're doing it for yourself, right? Everyone and their grandmas are doing Inktober, the tag isn't magic (not anymore) and it isn't going to skyrocket your followers - save for a few lucky people. Most popular art you see are from already popular artists who don't need the tag.
4 Remember the 1st goal of Inktober: improving your art. You may not become Sakimi-chan in a month, but you'll be 31 drawings closer to your goal. If they all suck, congratulations! 31 pieces as a beginner give you way more noticeable gains than 31 drawings by a pro.
5 Remember the 2nd goal of Inktober: building good habits. Nowhere does it say you have to shit out a masterpiece every day. Fucked up big time? Forgive yourself and move on. Feeling low today? Call it a day and post it unfinished. Not punishing yourself is a good habit to build.
6 Don't use anything I said to slack off! You should still try and challenge yourself in ways that won't destroy your moral fiber. Positive stress is called eustress. Learning to manage it is also a good habit. Change rules if you must. For the greater good of GETTING ART OUT!
7 Finally, keep drawing!
Those drawings are not gonna make themselves.
Happy failures (and occasional successes), everyone.
