Me in the Middle of Inktober 2018

I Survived Inktober 2018

This month has been an eventful month!

I had a medical set-back that sent me to the emergency room a few months back and was soon diagnosed with AVNRT which is a form of Supraventricular Tachycardia.  A Cardiac Ablation was scheduled for October 15th and while waiting for that date, my activity level took a nose dive.

Then I heard about Inktober 2018 and decided it would be a great way to pass the time and fight the boredom.  It would calm my pre-surgery fears and also give me a buffer-zone against the ugly, stressful developments in our country’s politics.  The challenge is to come up with an ink-sketching idea based on a daily prompt.  Here’s the video that explains Inktober much better than I could:

So all went well with the Cardiac Ablation and I’m just completing my recovery with a good report from the doctor.  I also finished all 31 days of Inktober and feel pretty good about it.  Take a look at my sketches.  Maybe you’ll join us next year for Inktober 2019?

  1. What a fun way to stimulate a drawing/painting creative exploration! Thanks for sharing. (And hoping for your continued recovery…. I had aCatheter Ablation years ago and never even think about it anymore!). Visiting form #MLSTL

  2. They’re all great Mary Lou – I didn’t realize how talented you were – and what a great way to distract yourself from surgery. I hope you’re on the road to recovery now and it’s great that you have Nibvember to continue on with.
    MLSTL and I’ve shared on my SM 🙂

    • Thank you Leanne! The challenge did work in keeping my mind off any worries. I’ve started rehab and hope to be back to my normal exercise routine. Enough sitting around! 😀

    • Thank you Sue! Part of ‘positive aging’ is finding creative outlets that help you through these setbacks. I had fun doing the challenge and it took my mind off any worries. ❤
