【 RETURNING FROM A LONG HIATUS;
ACTIVE BUT NOT CURRENTLY POSTING ART. 】
Aman5 is my personal project: a sci-fantasy taking place in the doomed Aman5 star system. It's composed of three stories, with extensive worldbuilding and more sub plots than I'd like to admit. Aman5 is very special to me. So I hope to get better at actually sharing it!
Undergoing revisions. Older submissions may be outdated.
-Career changes. Without going into detail, Darron and I are bidding adieu to the Army. It's a hard decision and a scary change, but with our current politics one we need. Had a good run! But the freedom's nice. D's gotten into manufacturing and I'm now back in school, studying automotive tech (mechanics) as I decide where to go next. A trucker? Operations? I guess we'll see!Sorry again for the sheer length of this, haha. I'm still re-learning the internet, so if I ever go dry again feel free to shake me down. Hit me, I can take it......
-We bought a house! This area suits us well so we decided to get outselves a little fixer-upper, and while we're still working on it we're enjoying the space and privacy. Lots of plans but for now: the dang roof, haha.
-(First visitor to Casa De Ribbs was Antivulano, who came this March. We loved having you here, Anti, you need to come back! We gon' take you huntin'!!)
-In late 2017 my sister and I got to revisit our hometown. That may not sound like much, but for us it was special! We visited loved ones, saw old sights, got much-needed closure with our mother, and had an insanely fun road trip. It was also realize how much things have changed since leaving California all those years ago.
-Closure helped me commit to therapy. Six months in I'm now realizing how deep-seated childhood abuse can be, but also how freeing it is to have control. It's a hard topic to talk about. But I want to someday be more open about it.
-I'm still struggling to get back in touch with my creative side. Art is like a steam train, I'm finding: smooth when it runs, but hard as heck to get back in motion. Since 2014 Aman5 has been going through some heavy revisions, and I can't wait to someday share this with you guys. For now, I hope you understand the continued lack of art!
-Hmm what else? Our kitty Little Man's doing good: as poofy and soft as always!
1. What are your goals for 2018? What's one thing you've done, big or small, that you're proud/happy about?
2. Seems like dA's a ghost town these days. In terms of social media, what sites do you use and where are you most active?
