And now, what you’ve all been waiting for…

Brief notes: Finished yet another SC feature; began drawing Krang (looks pretty good so far...); made significant headway in the story by realizing that the last part that I wrote needed to be excised. Every line that I write follows the one before it, so if a series of lines are off, like walking up a staircase in an abandoned building, eventually I reach a boarded up door. Now that I've discovered that, I'm heading back down the staircase, and hopefully things will go more smoothly. Also, I've had this quiz window open for ages, so let's post the results and get it over with...


what flavor pocky are you?

That said, it's time to give a proper reply to Dawn Eden's recent blog entry entitled "Go Wes". I really like the title. 🙂 I may end up addressing the quotation from C.S. Lewis during the course of this response -- and in any case, religion will certainly come up -- but I want to begin my reply on a more personal note. I've been up all night, so it may not be the most coherent of pieces...but it should be readable. Hopefully I'll say something interesting, at least... (more...)

Really brief post. Dawn (if you're reading) -- I haven't forgotten the substantial reply that I've been promising; I've got a pretty good idea of how it'll go, and I've even got some quotes written down from a sermon I heard over the weekend to include (not to mention quotes from a sitcom that I happened to watch, since it was on after the State of the Union address and I didn't bother to change the channel), but I keep hoping I'll make some significant headway with and/or finish this story first. I'd meant to do some more writing tonight, but I got caught up with working on the website again. Oh well, at least now several articles are finished and uploaded, so yay there...we have content! I <3 content. Want a preview? I'll think about it. 😉 (more...)

Speaking of cookies…
Category: Miscellany

I didn't open the cookies last night. Still, I had an interesting dream -- I cannot actually remember what happened in it, but I woke with an inexplicable desire to recall it (I tried, but to no avail), so I assume that it was interesting. I think that I might have gotten into a philosophical argument with an alien monster thing in the dream. I've had several dreams like that, but I can never remember exactly what we discussed. I did remember the discussion I had with Morpheus, though -- not Laurence Fishburne (Cowboy Curtis!!!), but the god of dreams. He looked a lot like David Gunn in Vampire Journals. Anyway, I did have cheesecake, so maybe it was the cheesecake. But I've had cheesecake at other times during the past month, to no effect, so maybe it was the cherries... (more...)

Don’t give away my cookies, plz.

Today was a sad day.

First, I woke up from the best extended dream sequence I've had in about a month. That was good. It was almost like a continuation of a dream that I had over a year ago, because it took place in the same setting (but then again, certain wings of my high school are common backdrops in my dreams). I'd go into it further, but this is one of those dreams that's going to be easy to turn into a dream narrative, so I want to keep what I've got for the story. It'll also involve a longer rewrite of the old dream, and while I don't remember it entirely, it's a good thing I wrote it down in the blog I was keeping back then. Also good that I saved those archives. (more...)

Brief post and Buff stuff
Category: Serious

Brief post before I go to bed. Don't be discouraged; if you haven't read the last couple of posts, scroll down. Heady stuff for girls and boys alike, yessir.

I was doing so well with the story last week, and now I find I'm barely able to write a word that doesn't get violently scratched out two seconds later. Eventually I got a page down on the legal pad (with just as much writing preceding it, but looking like the page had been ruled after I wrote it, owing to the strikethrough effect of my disapproval), but could write no more, so I just typed what I've got into the word processor so far. 1,400 words, bah. Not much, but I'd planned on this being a really short story, so that means I should probably be wrapping it up soon. But it seems like the action has barely started, so that's a problem. And I'm having a little bit of trouble keeping it from being unconfusing with the tenses, since it describes past actions that were repeated often and I don't want a lot of "would"s and "would then"s all over the place. Hopefully I'll finish it tomorrow, maybe Tuesday, and get the kinks worked out. (more...)
