Alright this is getting sinister now. In tribute to Alan Rickman, I've unstored my Land Tax parody card. Hopefully Count Count and Goku are okay.

NaNoWriMo 2014 - Completed
Very pleased to announce that I finished NaNoWriMo today. The novel itself is not yet finished but I've reached the required 50k words. Since I'm going to be busy this weekend, this was effectively my final day and so I'm very happy to have managed it. Writing 6k in one day was a bit of a slog but I'm fairly pleased with the results.
Final Word Count: 50,068 words
For those curious, I'm going to be attending the Glasgow Games Festival this weekend which will effectively use up any remaining time I might have to write. On top of that, I've sacrificed time playing my copy of Super Smash Bros for Wii U to write today and I want to make up for

NaNoWriMo 2014 - Week 2
This is the second update for NaNoWriMo. I'm pretty happy with my progress although I feel like I could do better. The story is shaping up rather nicely and I'm confident I can make the 50k fairly comfortably. In fact, I'll be quite pleased if I can get the entire first draft of the novel done by the end of the month.
Current Count: 26171 words so far
So how is everyone else doing? Are you doing NaNoWriMo? If not, are you up to anything else interesting like art projects or other creative endeavours?

NaNoWriMo 2014 - Week 1
I decided to be a bit different this year. I'm only going to update every seven days. Saves me having to remember to write a journal every night and also means I don't spam my watchers (I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates journal and poll spamming).
Anyway, a good first week so far. Story is flowing nicely after a shaky start and I'm really into the swing of things. It feels good to sit down and write a novel. For the past year, my writing has been confined to roleplaying and visual novel scripts which both have limiting factors. I've missed the freedom.
Current count: 12,601 words

NaNoWriMo 2014 and Other News
It's that time of the year again and I am once more going to be participating in NaNoWriMo 2014. I'm swapping between different ideas at the moment but I suspect it will be another Elemancer story. After that, perhaps I might stop being lazy and actually edit one so I can show it to people. I've found that I'm too exhausted after November to touch it and then I get too busy. I'm going to try and be more proactive in that regard.
In other news, I am still involved with Backstage Pass and Lupiesoft. In addition, I am now managing a project for Winter Wolves. Overall, I am quite busy but I am pretty happy at being able to actually get paid to d

Forsaken Productions and an Empty Gallery
I've been remiss not to update this. Most of my artistic time is taken up with my new company Forsaken Productions. I am involved in several game development projects as well as the odd story commission. I do have some personal work on my mind and I really want to expand on that. I'll try to post something up to make my gallery appear less neglected.
Speaking of my gallery...
I decided to put almost all of my gallery into storage. They're very old and I'm not happy with them being around on my gallery (Not that I think many people actually look at it). My friends on dA will probably point out I often get onto them for storing things but per
