Things are a little better now. Stress, especially with this story, is still through the roof, but at least the cat seems to be doing somewhat better for the time being. I've redone the story outline to this thing two more times since my last entry, but now I need a favor:

Would someone care to go over it with a fine toothed comb to make sure the outline makes sense? I've changed things so many times to shore up the details that I'm not sure if it makes sense to anyone but me. Comment here and/or PM and I'll send the Google Drive link.

Thanks in advance and take care.

Here with a small update in regards to the state of how things have been lately:

Manged to get an outline of sorts done in reference to the personal writing project I have planned. Some loose ends need to be tied up and major plotting/character expansion needs to be added in and done, but if anyone would like to see what I have planned so far, let me know and the Google Drive link will be PMed to you. Just keep in mind, it's far from done and as I go along, things will probably change in reference to the plot and other details.

My cat has also been very sick. I thought I'd managed the worst of it with antibiotics, but the URI he was diagnosed with last month came back with a vengeance a few days ago. I took him to the vet again yesterday, and they believe he has a tumor in his skull. He's been sneezing a lot and some of it's bloody, but they gave him more antibiotics and a steroid shot in hopes it will help. I don't see huge improvement yet, but the antibiotics take a few days to kick in. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, but between the costs of constant vet trips and reading up on the survival rate for his type of cancer, I'm not overly optimistic. This cat is like my baby, and even if he is older now (for all intents and purposes, 14 years old) it doesn't hurt any less.

I apologize for being MIA with what I owe, but the hits keep on coming and I don't see any end in sight. I just want to crawl into a hole. I wanted this year to be different in terms of facing crap. But I guess we don't get what we ask for in terms of those sorts of things. I'll update with more later as time allows.

Take care, everyone.

Hi guys,

I know this is a day late. Work has been busy these last few weeks and I've been very drained. New Year's and Christmas were quiet for me, filled with gaming after the rush of everyone wanting everything and a lot of cleaning at the job. I've made a few resolutions this year that I hope I can keep, which include getting out more to make new friends and becoming more fit. Some of that also includes how I handle my writing as well. So, to give everyone a heads-up:

I'm trying to get a working draft of my novel stuff done so I have something to build on. This has been my main focus for the last month or so. While I'll be continuing to work on that, I'll also be doing commissions and keeping people up to date on their progress. New commissions are currently closed. Commissions in general may be coming a bit slower for awhile, however, until this thing with the novel gets itself straightened out. It's more that I have ideas, but getting them in some order to make it interesting has been very hard for me. This last year has been hard in many ways and I've been struggling a lot, so I'm hoping the new one is better.

I also wanted to thank everyone who gave me things for the holiday exchange. I'm still taking requests until the 15th of this month. I actually got more from it than I expected, so while I doubt there's anything else forthcoming, I'm happy. :aww: I also hope I was able to make someone's holiday better.

If anyone needs me for anything or wants to chat, please PM. I'll get back to you ASAP. Hope everyone had a great New Year and if you made resolutions, you can stick to them! :heart:
And/or holiday of choice. :santa:

Work has been driving me up a wall with one 12-hour shift last night and 8+ hours every other day this week. I apologize for the lack of communication and commissions for those who have them. Work will resume after the New Year. I wish everyone a safe and happy holiday before I need to head back in.

Take care! :heart:
Feeling down about my writing again.

You're welcome! I don't run into fellow Diana Wynne Jones fans too often. I you don't mind my asking, which is your favorite book of hers?

oh! I hope this isn't offensive, but.. I've only had the chance to read the Howl's Moving Castle series so far, and Howl's Moving Castle is my favorite. I love the style of writing in there, and I find that her original novel draws me in much more than the animation does (although Miyazaki did a wonderful job with his own interpretation). Which of her other novels do you recommend the most? It's about time I figured out a way to get my hands on another one of her works. I guess I was just afraid that I wouldn't like the writing style that she used in any of her other books.. ^^;

No, no, it isn't offensive at all, no worries. :) Howl actually gets around quite a bit within her universes, so as you read more, you may see him pop up in a lot of places you weren't expecting. Well, I wasn't expecting it, but that's another story. I have read the first book concerning Howl, but her Chrestomanci series is very good (if you like Howl, you'll probably like Christopher, who is the main character of that series). The first book in the Chrestomanci series technically doesn't have a lot of Christopher, so I'd recommend starting with The Lives of Christopher Chant first and reading the other books he's a side-character in later on. Her stand-alone book, Fire and Hemlock is also very good, and I can say I also enjoyed The Dark Lord of Derkholm. I'm full of recommendations, actually, and not just for her novels. ^^; I skimmed your gallery a bit and saw you have quite a few interesting characters. Do you have a favorite? Sorry for all the random questions, I just get curious.
