Here's a shocker: I have actually been writing, more than ever before. The reason you haven't seen them is that I'm submitting them to the Yale Younger Writer's Award contest, due this Sunday. A number of the poems are directly from my DA account, as well as pieced together from multiple poems and lines I picked out from my gallery. *And*, if I don't win, I'll probably see about publishing the manuscript anyways with someone else. fifty-three pages of poems and gory imagery. it's been a good time.
Besides poetry, I've started working on a podcast script with one of my buddy-pals. Something full of horror and suspense and Eldritch Evil and northern gothic. and a lighthouse. We're still in the brainstorming stage, but it is going really! well!
Art has been on and off, more on now which is nice. Went to sleepovers, a Night Vale event, watched both excellent movies (The Awakening!) and terrible disgusting movies I will never speak of. Never.
My mum had a meniscus tear through October, but we finally had the surgery, and she's well on the mend now. So it turned out to be a good thing I didn't go in for the fall semester at the community college; I was very much needed to help out at home. Right now, I'm mostly chopping wood and scrubbing the tub. I think I could take my brother in an arm wrestling match now. Oh, and I've been talking to one of my mum's friends about renting out one of her rooms up in Portland, and getting a job around there. the hunt of Craigslist has begun.
So everything's going pretty well. Stuck at home most days, but I try to work on at least one thing a day. I also have a Tarot deck project, the old webcomic story, a writing exercise for imagery, and even a crazy idea for a blogging site I came up with last night while lying in bed for three hours. My mind is on overdrive.
I know I've been rather absent from here, but how're y'all?
