Seasonal Slow Down

Last week I posted in a Facebook drawing group that I’m a member of to ask if anyone felt as though they slow down when the weather turns colder and the days get darker. Over the past few months I’ve been drawing every single day without much effort, but once Inktober was over I decided to ease off for a while, assuming I’d get back to drawing every day quite soon.
