I wanted to use this skin again since it's gonna be hot this week. But we're heading to the end of summer in this part of the world. Autumn will be here soon--my favorite season of the year.
Yesterday was my baby's 1st birthday. So hard to believe he is a year old already. Time just flies. *sigh* I hope to get a few pictures of him posted soon. He's grown so much!
I will admit, money and health issues are still the pits. I keep hoping next month will be better, and I've been doing that for the last 4 months, to no avail. Hence my recent malaise. But, I also don't want to be a wet blanket. So just letting everyone know I'm hanging in there, barely (since I do have people periodically asking how the situation is). Though, I'm going to try hard not to complain about it here and focus on the positivity. C:
On a positive note, art has come to my rescue. Rather, my muse has. I don't believe I have a specific muse, but I do feel it as an infusion of inspiration. I have struggled on and off for months to re-discover my love for pixelling and emoticons, with spotty success. Well, I feel that I have it now. I have been having so much fun doing my comic and I am enthused to re-start some of my dA emote projects again. It feels good.
I know many of my fans don't migrate over there, but I am also excited about my writing and, specifically, my literature series. I struggled for a while with doubts about my course, and the fact I am choosing a non-conventional way to get my story "out there." I've received a lot of criticism for my decision to not go the traditional publishing route, and people have suggested I should throw in the towel as I will never succeed this way. Well, I never planned my work to be conventional, and I don't mean it to be a traditional novel type story. I'm doing something different, literature-based storytelling with a multimedia angle that includes art, music, comics, games, and more. I'm excited about it and am encouraged to keep going. Of course, I appreciate the support of all of my fans. Oh, and if you haven't checked out %RelativityComic
, I would love you if you did. <3
And with my encouragement comes my desire to do more for others. I have been continuing my articles series on my `mirz-alt
and am working re-starting them on this account. I know I keep saying that, but I'm taking baby steps.
Speaking of baby steps, that is another thing I am focusing on--not overwhelming myself. Taking things one day at a time. I think many of us fall into that trap of feeling obligated to do things, then they start to feel like a job, and then the fun and enthusiasm fades. I don't want that to happen. So trying hard to keep this light and fun, and not rush it. So expect good things on the horizon from me, but on a more relaxed schedule.
So, now that I've rambled, show me your most recent artwork. Post a link, or if you're a premium member, post the thumb! I may just grab them all for a feature soon.
