#BookishInktober2020 Announcement

‘I wanna tell others.’
‘Plan, plan, plan.’
‘But-’
‘Plan, plan, plan.’
‘I have been eyeing at this since the last three years, you know it!’
‘Think it over, think it over’
‘But I have some time this year!’
‘You do?’
‘Not exactly, but-’
‘Plan, plan, plan.’
‘Arghh, alright I’ll PLAN and then announce it to everyone!’.

This is a gist of the repeated conversations between my over-enthusiastic brain and my over-planning brain, for the last 8 days.

I’m thinking of, strike that, I’m PLANNING to participate in Jake Parker’s Inktober Challenge this year! @jakeparker created @inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

What? Do I hear some boos? Well, let me finish. Since I’m doing this challenge on my bookstagram, I’ve decided to turn these into bookish prompts. So it’ll be #BookishInktober2020 for me.

I’ve not done ANYTHING of this scale on my bookstagram (book-instagram) or on my blog ever, so trust me when I say this – you wouldn’t want to miss out! Subscribe to my blog, sign up to my mailing list, count the days until 1st Oct., and buckle up for a ride!

There’ll be mini-reviews along with the sketches. Someday I’ll talk about the scene that I’ve sketched, or at times I’ll delve full-on into my favourite parts of the book/series. So even if you don’t enjoy art so much, you can still take away these mini-reviews, giving you a peek into some of my favourite reads over the years and hopefully it’ll help you add up some books on your TBR list.

This series will be starting 1st Oct. & will end on 31st Oct. There will at least be one post per day on my booksta feed and blog throughout October. Extra posts only when I have some review to post or something entirely other than Inktober.

I’ll try and post around 8 pm (IST) each day but might be late at times, as I’m neither a professional artist nor a professional writer, so things do take time.

Thanks for reading everything so patiently, I CAN’T WAIT FOR OCTOBER!!
