The hardest part about blogging is having something to say. I drew these chairs because I was stuck and had nothing else to draw. Now I have to make up something interesting to say. It's hard. I belong to this blog, Urban Sketchers. The site is full of super talented artists. But a lot of times people post drawings and then write, "I was in the subway and drew the people next to me." Or, " I had nothing to do at lunch so I drew my lunch." Or, "There is some nice building in my city I always wanted to draw so here it is." There is a lot of repetition. I am the first to admit I am guilty of this sin myself. I'm not trying to put anyone down. It just seems that the writing portion of this blogging business is very difficult. I mean, it's hard enough dragging your ass onto the street to do some crazy drawing. Now I have to sit in front of my computer and think up clever tales to go with it. Sometimes I just give up. "I had nothing to draw so I drew these chairs." There, I committed the sin.
