Or at least a little happiness.

I've given myself permission not to write for the next few days. I think I've been putting too much pressure on myself (esp. after the rather fantastic month I had in May, writing-wise), so a break should do me a little good. In the meantime, I'm brainstorming what to do for my TRONfest bingo card, since I feel like as admin I should at least post something.

I borrowed the second season of Community from the library the other day. It's due back tomorrow, so I sat down and watched the first two discs today. I forgot how much fun that show is. S2 also has the amazing "you CHLOROFORMED the JANITOR?!?!?!" scene and I was basically in stitches the whole time. What perfect comedy. XD

I knit a full pattern repeat on the baby blanket today. I measured it, too; I've reached 18 inches! Only six more to go, which seems pretty doable by the end of the month. :)

I also made some icons:

I'm pretty happy with how they turned out. I found a tutorial for using feathering to blend the edges between two caps, and used that on the last two. I will probably be using that a bit more in the future.

Not sure what I'm going to do with the rest of my evening. Maybe watch some Steven Universe or something. Or a movie. I'm feeling like popcorn right now, after all.

I think that's a great idea, if you feel you need it! I hope it helps!

I've seen a few episodes of Community for the first time relatively recently, and wow, what a show! It really is hilarious - I'm glad you're getting to rewatch!

Good luck on the baby blanket!

Those icons are great, too, btw! I'm definitely itching to make some of my own, again, and to see more of yours!

It's amazing. I love Donald Glover and Danny Pudi, especially - their characters and that friendship is so fun!

You're welcome x2! XD

Knitting is something I would like to learn how to do. I have so many online friends who make these great things, but no friends in rl that can teach me how. :/
Your icons came out nice. It's been so long since I made them for LJ, that I seem to have forgotten how I used to get them sharp enough in this size. I keep meaning to post new ones, but haven't been happy with the end result of my recent attempts.

Sometimes taking a break from writing is the best thing you can do for a project. I've had stories where I just wasn't feeling it and couldn't make progress for days or even weeks--usually once I stopped trying to force myself to write (and write well) the words started flowing again.
