I am not dead! Huzzah!

So, I finished NaNoWriMo for the second time.

Then I was working seven days a week for about three months. So I quit my job because I value my sanity over money. Then I was housesitting my friend's house for a month (which was awful, more details later). And today I am home.

And I'm going to talk about my writing for a little bit because deviantART is for art and writing is art yay!

So in September I finished the novel I was working on for just over a year. I set that aside and tried (see: failed) to write some short stories between then and NaNo.

NaNoWriMo was excellent. My story was a good first draft and I figured out what needs fixing (everything).

Whilst I was housesitting, I tried to start redrafting the novel I finished in September. But then the cat pissed (PISSED!) on the print-out and I think that had some kind of resounding metaphorical significance because I couldn't write anything. Then again that house may have just killed any creativity and rendered me unable to work @.@

So now I'm going to start a new novel and then redraft the novel i finished in September at the same time. Then in November I'm going to rewrite my NaNo from last year.

And my very first NaNo ... well, that can stay rotting on my usb key 'cause dat shit's awful, yo.

OH ALSO. I intern for a lit journal and we had the launch not long ago! It was very exciting. If you are an Australian writer who writes about queers, you should check it out:

You'rwe very welcome, I love your ME art! And you make me want to play Dragon Age, haha.

Ahahahaha :'D
Why, my taste in games ain't the best there is, so just play games as your pleasure. I'd feel horrible if you didn't enjoy Dragon age.

It will be your fault if I don't enjoy it blaaarghhh. :P But I do love Bioware and I've heard mostly good things about it so I'm looking forward to it. But I also may have terrible taste in games :P
