More Inktober Drawings and a Writing Update

Here's a few more #Inktober drawings. I've been liking ballpoint. Also I finished the second draft of my novel "Haunted House Flipper!" I'm doing one last clean up pass and then it's off to Beta Readers!

For the first time I'm doing #Inktober this year. What is Inktober? Kind of like NaNoWriMo is for writers, every October artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

I finished revising my novel!

One last pass through the manuscript and this bad boy will be ready for beta readers!
