Daily Thoughts 101

Author's selfieMy schedule is a bit different this week. Worked today, off tomorrow, working a few days and then off at the end of the week. Nothing like that to throw off schedules!

Daily Sketch Challenge

Carrot sketchI took a few minutes this morning to work on my daily sketch challenge. I find I’m missing it when I don’t sketch. Of course, I’m not limited to 5 days. I can still draw on my days ‘off’.

I need to start turning off the music when I’m doing my sketching. Today’s video ended up blocked because of music playing softly in the background. I’ve removed the audio, replacing it with a few comments, and uploaded the video.

It didn’t really matter. Other videos I’ve done showed that the YouTube software detected copyrighted material, meaning that I couldn’t monetize the videos if I wanted and any advertising revenue would go to the performers. I don’t have any problem with those terms. If that’s all that happened, that’d be fine. Since it can block the videos, however, that’s different. Going forward, I’ll just leave the music off.
