Hello, dear watchers!
It's true. I still live! Anyways, things haven't been picture perfect in my life, and I'm currently in the middle of sorting things out. They always told me that junior year of high school would be rough, but I never expected it to be quite as bad as it has been. Let alone watch my friends go down with me. Anyways, that being said, I've come to inform you of some of my summer plans. Because I can at least look forward to having a life again in the course of two months or so.
First and foremost, Hail-Fire
is going to be taking an extended hiatus. But that's only because I have a few other ideas that want to be anywhere but the back burner on the stove of creativity. That being said, I'll be starting up two new written works, one this summer, and one in the near future. The one that will be started this summer is still under wraps... It's kind of based off of all these crazy "what if" scenarios that my friends and I have come up with. The one that shall be started soon... Well, it's actually already begun: Parting Words
is going to become part of what I'll be referring to as The Junior Year Anthology.
Because let's face it, everyone has rough spots in their life, but it's important to know that we can overcome such circumstances.
In terms of other art stuff... Well, I'm planning on refining my digital skills; I finally managed to get Manga Studio 5 Ex, and for the little bits of time that I've fooled around on it, I love it. So hopefully there will be some fan art and original concept art coming to life. I also plan to return to the musical side of things and pick up some new songs on the piano... Whether or not I'll save to get my piano tuned is another story; it hasn't been done in years, so it'll be pricey. But I'll be returning to my part-time job - so that could help... Although I'm going to have drivers' ed and car insurance costs coming up, too. And college apps... YAY! No... Not really.
But so it goes in life. Anyways, that's it for now. Thanks for sticking with me.
