    I'm going to try ...

    Hoping there will be some overlap between the two sets of prompts, as there was last year.

    Looking at that list, I don't think I want to attempt all of them. But we'll see.

    My son and I planning to participate again.
    Itís already a kind of tradition for us since 2017.


    And regarding the list, I have the impression that it gets stranger and stranger every year (as non native speaker I have to look up some words, which I never heard/used)

    On the other side, it should not be too easy, so thinking about a weird prompt could also be seen kind of positive.

    I'm not going to do all of them this year. I still lack the energy to commit to much, and don't want to make myself feel bad when I fail.

    I also find some of them just too stupid. Why would I want to draw snot?

    That's what I thought too:

    boog∑er | ˈbo͝oɡər |
    noun North American informal
    1 a piece of dried nasal mucus: I watched as the man sat there picking boogers out of his nose.
    2 another term for bogeyman: ghosts and boogers loomed around every corner.

    I'm trying to find a underlying thread between the prompts. I would be fun to write a short story with these elements... and then sketch it out. Now if I could go find some extra time

    In the past I saw several artists connecting the prompts to a kind of story.
    I always like such approaches.

    Unfortunately I canít find some right now.
    I remember that I saw something like that at least 2-3 times on Deviant Art.

    Do you know Lethal Chris?
    Really good artist with a YouTube channel.

    In his Inktober drawings he periodically drew a figure with a red cape, no tight story connecting every prompt but loose.

    E.g. his 2021 ones

    I think I will stick with the alternative meaning of bogeyman

    I did think about that, but having spent the last 20 years as a parent trying to avoid this sort of negative imagery, I'm not going to embrace it now

    I'd add that as a fan of dedicated private spaces incorporating hot and cold running water, I feel much the same about #28, but I could at least think of alternatives for that one!

    I've thought of an interpretation of #23 that I'm willing to go with.

    Having said that I didn't want to attempt all of them, I promptly began to persuade myself otherwise. I now have drawings for the first seven, and seven of the others; I've made notes of ideas for the seventeen remaining and will see what I can do. I'm using my smaller sketchbooks, and keeping it simple. But I've been in a bit of a rut, doing the same kind of subjects over and over, except for the weekly Inktober, and this is a chance to stir things up slightly.

    Of course, it may not turn out that well, but that's always a risk.

    I've got a pretty good start on the daily, although some are giving me trouble, and others I may want to do over. But here's #1.
