Some positive updates! :)

Journal Entry: Mon Dec 15, 2014, 12:14 PM
Find me on: | Tumblr | FanFiction | Twitter |

Wow, has it really been since August that I posted my last journal?  Jeez...

Well, a LOT has happened in that time and I was getting tired of seeing the really depressing journal on my page, so here's a more optimistic one.

I was just offered a full-time position!  It's nothing huge, or artsy, but it's a job and that is ABSOLUTELY something I need right now!  Merry Christmas to me!  :D  You guys have no idea how hard I have been working to get this job and I am so relieved and just plain old happy.  It seems like a good place with good people and there will also be time after work for me to continue working on the next thing that has been keeping me busy:

MY MANUSCRIPT!

That's right, I am nearly at the stage where I will start looking for a literary agent!  I need to write a damn good inquiry letter first, but my story's almost done and I am overwhelmed at the thought!  I have personally edited my story about four or five times.  My mom has also read over it and I have two trusted friends reading it now.  Once they get back to me with their thoughts, and I have incorporated any necessary changes into my manuscript, I will consider it done!  It's hard to call completion on it, because I am constantly adding new things, and thinking that I can make it better.  I am doing my best to prep myself for the many rejections WILL come, but I am more excited that the story I have been plotting since 2007 is almost nearing completion–– well, the first of five, anyway.  It's a story based on magical realism and I am so excited about it!  Even if no lit agents want to support the story, I will continue writing it, because it means a lot to me.  :)

I have also been spending lots of time with some old high school friends and life has just generally picked up for me after enduring nearly seven years of crippling depression.

On the art front, I have some sketches saved in Photoshop, but I would really like to color them instead of just posting the sketches like I've been doing.  But my time has been used editing my manuscript or working towards finding work.  Once things have settled, you can expect some new art from me, probably in the new year.  I will be revisiting my roots as an Avatar fan!  Look forward to that!  :D

Take care, guys!  I'll be doing my 2014 in art update later this month, but in case I don't say anything else, take care and I hope you guys have a great 2015!  :D  Love ya!

Peace!  :peace:

Does anyone out there randomly speak Hawaiian and would be capable of helping me to translate something?

Hello there!  Sadly, I'm not currently doing commissions.  I have done them in the past and may open them again in the future, but currently, I am not taking any on.  Thanks for the interest, though!
