Hi Francis, I'm loving where it all comes from and even if I'm not sure about a discord, there is another format I find sometimes helpful wich is an "action time/cafe/call" where people call in and after a 5min intro each one turns off the camera and does what they have to do - content, writing, drawing etc.

Thank you for the reminder ones these good books aaaand that Inktober is just around the corner!

Hi Francis. I remember a comic about inktober that becomes procrastinober. But I agree wholeheartedly, creating everyday is liberating! Off to eat, will write more later...

I admire you for wanting to start a Discord, building community can be a good thing. But I said "no" because I am already in so many Discords, and I host one myself, and all these communities are taking my time away from creating. Discord really is social media and it requires the investment of time in order to be active enough to make participation rewarding. Right now I am culling my Discords to potentially make room for more but it is challenging to decide to leave a server, because you might miss something valuable.

The fault isn’t Discord. It happens with all platforms. I have been in and out of communities on Telegram, Slack, Circles, Discord, and more, they all take time, and I observe many creatives engaging on platforms as procrastination. From my experience, it might be better to make a daily 5 minute β€œlive” on the platform of your choice and then everyone can go off and do their thing. Anyway good luck with it.
