A collection of my YouTube videos where I talk about art, writing, and everything creative.
Welcome to the new flat! So I decided to switch on the camera while doing some spring cleaning and my partner decided to pop on to say hello (I asked his permission to include his parts dw)
So it’s been a while since I made a video but this video explains the reason why – I moved out!
4thewords is a website that has monster battles for writing streaks and is apparently the only way that I can motivate myself to write nowadays 😅
So a lot has changed since I last made a video – and even in the time it took me to upload this video. But my desk needed sorting as I was getting claustrophobic with the amount of stuff on there. And here’s to being creators!
Another study log – I’m on a roll. But I am trying to stick to my limits with this and making sure I don’t do what I did last year and do a load of work, burnout then have zero inclination to do anything for months. I think that having goals and loose schedules seems to be workingContinue reading “Daily Log: 07.02.2022 | Lyric Writing and Music Study”
Keeping up with my studies and making sure that I get things done in order to achieve my dreams. I am taking my dreams seriously this year and making active steps to achieve them.
Just a little timelapse log of my Tuesday where I was feeling pretty productive and got a fair amount done. Done a bit of introspection and realised that I started this channel to try and hold myself accountable so that what’s what I’m going to do. So if it does its job, then future logs should contain moreContinue reading “Daily Log 01/02/2022 – Notion editing & Music Theory note-taking”
So I haven’t been active for a little while and it isn’t routine/ scheduling issues this time (at least not completely). Hopefully in 2022 I will be able to fix some things and progress with others and take you along with me My blog post: https://imaginationmansion.com/2022/01/06/happy-belated-new-year/ Find me on social media @babyfrog96
post simply because November and December seemed to just bring about a stream of issues and setbacks (and Christmas wasn’t one of them hilariously). But a lot of stuff happened all at once and so I didn’t have the time, resources, or energy to post a video or write a blog entry due to it all.
So this video is a bit different to what I usually do: Skill Unlocked – Voice-over But I also watched a video on Gamification as a way to try and get through life and so I thought I would give it a go – I’ve also always wanted to have a go at bullet journalling so this wasContinue reading “Gamification Planning for my Bullet Journal”
I filmed some of my final Inktober paintings and so I decided to put them all together in a timelapse with some spooky music – enjoy!
Sorry that this video ended up being late, my editing kept getting put on hold for one reason or another but that’s life I suppose. I tried to film some good shots in this video because *Autumn* Hope you enjoy! Feel free to like, comment and subscribe – and share if you liked it! Social media: @babyfrog96
So I did a lot outside this week, and so I didn’t really feel comfortable filming too much where other people could see me – however, I did my best with what I had and I hope that you enjoy the results 🙂
So after last week, I felt a lot more comfortable talking to the camera and even went on a trip outside and vlogged in a cafe (ish) Hope you enjoy the video – like, comment and subscribe if you did! It means a lot to me ^_^
So this week has been a bit of a stressful week for no reason whatsoever except my brain being mean. But I tried to put some stuff together and get better with adding stuff in to make the time-lapses a bit more interesting and to add more info into them. Hope you enjoy!
Second week at my parents and my ongoing problems with procrastination – but progress is being made!
Once again, a late video – but at least the weekly term still applies!! This week I’m back up at my parents’ house for birthdays and I managed to squeeze in some filming – though I’m still awkward talking to camera when people are around so sorry for the tiny talking segment compared to my first video. ButContinue reading “Weekly Vlog 3 | Painting and Story time”
So week two was almost worse than week one in terms of staying on schedule – as seen from the Sunday upload instead of the Friday (though I was travelling for this one) but I hope you enjoy it anyway!
So I’ve started another new system of trying out weekly vlogging. This one may have not gone completely to plan (damn my nocturnal nature) but I will be back again next week, hopefully having stuck to my timetable better.
Here is a part two of the painting that I did during my mini holiday at my parents’ house. I wonder if I was proud of them..😂. But I enjoyed it so much and so I now just need to figure out how to keep it up now that I’m back in the city.
So I went to my parents house for a few weeks and while I have the house to myself for the weekend, I thought I’d do something that I haven’t done for ages: Paint! I haven’t used watercolour in a long time and so I’m a little rusty but I still had a lot of fun!
This was all a bit sudden and so if it’s waffly, I got excited about being home alone – as shown by me using my ‘nobody’s home inside voice’ XD Hope you like it! Books mentioned in the video: The Hollow Crown – Dan Jones. Why does E=MC (squared)? – Brian Cox and Jeff Forshaw. Windsor Castle –Continue reading “A Spontaneous Book Haul”
So this video is a chill one – and I like to use vlogging as a way to motivate myself to study, which is kind of what this video is.
So I’ve decided to be a bit more free with my content and my filming so that I can actually enjoy what I am making again (and I was too broad with my previous videos so I may make more nuanced versions of them in the future) but for now I am making sure to have fun.
So I have been AWOL for a bit as I tried to come up with new content and I’ve come up with a new series where I walk you through how I world-build and you can contribute too by adding comments on what you want to be included in future episodes.
So I thought that I would go through how I plan my novels (and uni fiction works) to show off one of the many ways that it can be done (and also that all are valid cos mine is pretty odd)
Today I wanted to go through some tips on an issue that a lot of us are probably struggling with right now – lack of creativity. I hope you find these tips useful
In this video I list off my 7 most inspiring animations – film, cartoon and anime.
Today I am talking all about settings and world-building in your stories. What type of settings do you prefer to write or read?
In this video I talk about the films that have influenced my creativity and which have stuck with me throughout my life. What are your favourite films?
In this video I will be talking all about Plots and how I construct them.
Something a little different this week – I take a look at all the notebooks I have accumulated over the years. Which ones are your favourite?
Here is my video which accompanies my blog post on the same topic – I ramble a bit but I just love books too much.
So I am calling this series Building a Story and this is episode one where I discuss how I build my characters and what should be kept in mind when creating your own.
I have a new video up on my YouTube channel talking about my plans for both my writing and future videos.
