I've been on a big Instinct Rising writing kick hence why you haven't heard from me or the other stories. I'm talking like, a few pages a day. It's pretty awesome actually cause I haven't made progress like this on IR since I've started it (and on a depressed winter in 2010, but that's another story).
But also writing on IR means I start listening to lots of desert rock. Queens, Tom Waits, a lil' bit of Truckfighters (which is funny cause they're Swedish), and, well all those other bands.
You know the likes. 4 AM fuel. Windows down on an empty interstate, radio loud enough to mask the roar of an eighty-five mile an hour wind ripping through the cab as one desperately drags on the cigarette to keep it burning even. You're not driving fast because you want to make good time--the trip is too long for things like speed to even matter.
No, it's because you can.
Peace, and here's to hoping I have a nice novel to drop off somewhere soon.

bday reportWell yesterday was my bday. I hate it when people make a big deal out of it and everyone is telling me happy bday (or in the case of Alea sad bday) so I was hoping it would be a day at church when the pastor's wife forgets to announce the bdays and people don't notice it in the bulletin. Alas that didn't happen. She did remember so the whole church heard it was my bday. Katie turned around in her seat since she was in front of me to tell me happy bday, then Brooke was late so Alea had to point it out to her in the bulletin. At church, outta the hundred fiftyish people who go there only like six people told me happy bday so that wasnt too bad. Tho Morgan didn't tell me that til he punched me (just a little punch on the arm) after I pinched him for not wearing green ehehehe.bday report2 months ago in Personal More Like This

I am so annoyed with these assignments right now.
I genuinely don't have a clue what I'm talking about anymore. And I'm 800 words off the wordcount, but I can not physically think of anything more to write.
It's all just words, words, words. That is all my life boils down to.
And I've realised that I suck at anything that might actually matter. Tell me to write something comparing two novels and I have absolutely no trouble. Ask me to write how I am going to actively promote my own future novel and survive in the business and it's the most hardest thing in the world.
So, basically, I suck at real life.
I wonder if it's possible to bludgeon myself to death with the corner of a textbook? That would be an ironic death.
ImageSo during church, specially on Sunday mornings, I try REALLY hard to concentrate on the sermon. But its hard, partly cause my brain goes haywire and party cause with where Brooke, Alea and I sit if I turn to my left even the slightest bit I can see Morgan and any day he's good looking, but Sunday mornings when he's all dressed up in a suit (specially the purple one he wore this mornin) he looks absolutely fantastic. I would just change back to sitting behind my mum and dad so all I can ever see is the back of Morgan's head but that would just raise questions that I just don't wanna answer, and not turning to my left is outta the question cause if I wanna look at the pastor (or whomever is speaking) I have to look left. But I think this morning specifically I don't know really, but it was super hard to focus on the sermon. Then when we stood to worship and I'd turn to look around and see Morgan worshiping, just the way he smiles while he sings and just everything about that image in myImage3 months ago in Personal More Like This
AdorableSo like, pretty much all my life I've had this little idea in my head. Now don't judge how girly it sounds please. I'm not normally this girly, but I've had this little idea in my head that it would be the cutest thing if a guy I REALLY like called me just at some random point. Welllllll today, just after I finished my school, that happened. Eric called me and since that call I've been on cloud nine cause it was just sooooo nice to talk to 'im again, specially after how long its been since I got to hear his voice. What's even better is that he said he might get to come visit soon!!!Adorable3 months ago in Personal More Like This
wait, wha?It has come to my attention (albeit, about 4 years late) that I want to become a librarian. Not really one that sits around in an actual library and shushes noisy kids, but more of someone who works in digital archives and/or image collections. It makes sense, especially with my attachment to photography and to this community. I have a very certain way that I like to organize my favorites collection here on dA, for example, and I like to keep things looking neat and orderly. Those are merely a few characteristics among a long laundry list of things that define a "librarian"... I've even started looking up grad schools. Not in a million years would I have expected this...wait, wha?3 months ago in Personal More Like This

I would have been in uni today, first day of term. Only... I'm not. I miss my uni friends.
But the other thing I wanted to say was that I've just found out the date that I will be graduating. And that makes me feel depressed. I now have just 6 months to grow up and work out my life before I actually have to be living it. I'll have to wear those mortarboards and weird penguin capes. Not really my style, but we've decided to think of them as Harry Potter robes and Sorting Hats. That makes them seem a lot more fun.
I had a sew-your-own bat soft toy for xmas, I think I'll do that for a bit. And will try to stop sneezing.
Love love kiss kiss!

Girls are for girls tooIn the comic world, if you draw a lot of girls, it's easy to get lumped in with cookie cutter 'bad girl' artists which is not really my thing. I am very grateful that my work seems to be very 'girl friendly' (and girlfriend-friendly!). I hear a lot of nice things from female comic fans at cons and it always makes me feel like I'm on the right track. I also hear a lot of, "My wife really liked the picture you drew for me and she hates comics" type storiesGirls are for girls too7 months ago in Personal More Like This

Everyone else: THE PREQUELS SUCK
Me: No they don't? I mean, I am kinda annoyed at CGI everything, but the acting was just fine for me. Midichlorians are a way to make it more sci-fi, and Hayden portrayed a disturbed youth who witnessed his mother dying in his arms very well.
Everyone else: JAR JAR IS RETARDED
Me: He was aimed at children? Because... Star Wars is for both adults and children?
I hate most Star Wars fans because they hate Star Wars.
Also, make episode 7 just for kids? Have you not seen Pirates of the Carribean? John Carter? Are you smoking something?
Also, there's The Clone Wars tv cartoon. It's full of so much beautiful drama and intense action, it's like band of brothers in space! This is the kinda stuff we get when Lucas isn't doing all the writing and work!
The ONLY thing I am kinda irked about is all these here um... Expanded Universe novels I have... And games... That take place after Retu

Anyway, college is back. I managed to get in both Stained Glass and Creative Writing. Eventually I'll post stuff from those. (I don't actually want to post my stained glass piece until after Christmas, it's a commission form a friend for her husband's Christmas present and I don't want it on the interwebs until it's been gifted). Speaking of which, I've started working on some of the stained glass pieces I'm giving people for Christmas. I think I'll be able to post some of them before Christmas, but since so many of the people I'm making them for have their own DA accounts, I'm going to have to wait.
I'll also be posting the three stories I'm writing for Creative Writing, probably along with some of my better writing activities. But that'll be a while; I have to type t

No, I haven't read them.
Now, lets move forward.
Back in January or February? I had this girl ask me if we had the book and I had no idea what it was. Anyways, I spent a good 20 minutes looking for it and we didn't have it. Maybe a week later I got a phone call asking for the 2nd book and we didn't have that yet or something.
Anyways, long story short, I knew something was up. Why were all these women suddenly asking about this damn book series. And maybe a couple days later, I saw a thread about it on Inheritance forums (the forums I use SOMETIMES).
I learned it was Twilight Fanfiction. Published Twilight Fan fiction.
Anyways, I discovered it was pretty much smut. The author was asked to publish and she just pretty much changed the names since it was an AU.
SO, I've spent the last several months judging everyone I see picking up the books at work (we have a book table right in front of my department) and asking how much the box set was. I hadn't even rea
