I'm just a dabbler, a hobbyist, a dilettante, and should appreciate that I'm good enough to create things that other people enjoy and can still make gradual improvements over time. There doesn't need to be some grand plot, intricate setting, overarching story, or arc of revenge. My ideas don't need to win against those of others, my imagined foes don't need to be driven before me, if I want some sort of victory, it should be in achieving technical leaps or coming up with unique things and enjoying them. Just art, maybe a little writing, and some fun. Simple. Concise. Fancy-free. And typically as supporting cast. It's what I do best.
The challenge comes in fully internalizing this and deciding how to go about undertaking major gallery cleanup. Because [REDACTED], that's a lot of dirty laundry. Some of it is going to take a scalpel, other pieces will need a chainsaw, and there are a few things best off nuked from orbit. On the plus side I might even be able to restore a few things from the archive.
Or for that matter, dealing with how the Zinogre project got out of control and ate the past two years of my life--the only solution for that is completing him so I can finally work on other things. Funny how all of this spare time just dropped into my lap...
Things to do:
-Take care of re-employment activities
-Get back into shape
-Pester Ameroth and continue refining designs. I don't have an instinctive feel for what I'm doing at this point.
-Clean house. Both the apartment and my galleries could really use a good tidying assault.
