things any decent human being would submit to the scrap folder...


Well, that's it. Almost flipping another calendar shut, almost turning over a clean page. A day in between the years, staring back, balanced on that high and narrow wall - expanses of time either side, blurry horizons. Pleasant vertigo, summer breeze.

I didn't sell any more stories this year, but I did write some fanfic. No one died (or rather, plenty of people did, they always do, but none of them were mine). I'm mostly either reconciled or completely fallen out with anyone I've had tensions with these past few years. And fuck, the years are flying, and I'm old enough for that cliche. Don't really want to think, or reflect just now. Just want to be, really, for a day.

I'm off to sit on the crumbling brick wall in my back yard and drink tea until the evening comes and carries me off some place.

Wishing y'all a superlative one - take whatever opportunity the day presents, and let it take you where it will. Drink deep, should you chance drink, dream far, should you chance to dream.

Me? I'll still be here when next year comes. Clillin' with Dante and Machiavelli and assorted dead Florentines and sundry saints, in between some pages in what free time I get. Working a lot, sleeping a bit, drifting as I do.

Wow, I am immensely flattered that you liked my work - thank you for the compliment and the favs. I was pretty blown away by your gallery, and hope to see more art from you soon.

Hey! Only now I realized that I never got to reply to you on your comment here, and tell you how much I appreciate your words :)
You haven't uploaded anything in a long time, how come? Your works are amazing, I hope you still make art, because I just love your style!

Heya. Sorry for the lag in replying on my end. I'm genuinely stoked to hear that you like my stuff - you have an amazing touch with your drawings. I definitely still draw - haven't sat down to finish anything in ages, but I always lug a sketchpad with me and scribble. I've got a simultaneous case of broken scanner and work-exhaustion blues just now, but both are passing things. I'm definitely not permanently gone - just on the lurk and badly sucking at replying to anyone. Thanks a bundle for the kind words, though - I'll do my best not to disappoint and throw something up here every once in a while.
