Week’s happenings: I feel like the main reason my word count was up this week is because I started writing a non-fiction book. It’s one I’ve toyed with over the years and I’ve already written massive amounts of material for. I kept dropping it though, thinking that I’d rather be writing fiction and feeling as if I didn’t have my own angle for it. That angle came this week. I’m even thinking about incorporating my Rockin’ Life comics into them. As I was writing this post, I went back to Rockin’ Life and realized that I had started something (I thought was) pretty cute. This was actually what I had decided to do as an early version of my non-fiction book; maybe I just really need to get back to my original idea. What do you thing?
I’ve been listening to The Doorway Prince trying get the audio finalized. I keep finding things that need fixed. Argh! What a project.
The boys and I spent the weekend at Anime Oasis. Again, it was a fun time to listen to the voice actors. I even got a few helpful tips for my own audio work. I also bought some new artwork from one of the artists in Artist Alley. One picture held so much grief in it, that I wanted to cry right along with the character. I know that I have to bring Steigan right to this point as well, so it will be hanging in my office as a reminder. It’s always a success when an artist can bring such emotions into the viewer.
Well, still hoping to finish the audio for The Doorway Prince this week and get it uploaded. Then, my next project will hopefully get me to doing some drawing as well. More on that later. But, for now, I better get back to it.
