...that is a perfectly good question, everyone. After all, we've had random days of nice weather and then a bit of snow on and off. I'd like for it to be spring now, really.

Yes, it's been a little bit again, but hey, life gets busy sometimes. At least I have some free time coming up, so hopefully I can catch up on all the things that have been waiting.

(Maybe if I'm really lucky, I can get a little writing done. No shortage of ideas, after all...)

What else? Well, I suppose I can try and get my communities all awake again, but then, I'm pretty sure I'm the only active member left. Either the others are just quiet, or they've just dropped off the face of LJ. Oh well, at least I carried everything over, so it can be safely preserved. If they want to, they can come over to the DW versions.

(Besides, if any of them still do RP-type stuff and they're WK fans who do crossovers, someone joined the muse community over on DW and was looking for partners. I still wonder about her, though...)

So yeah. Such is how this update goes, or something.


(...the bunny mood icon has little shades :) I'm totally giggling over here!)

I'm over here trying to get writing figured out and do commissions, hence my silence recently. Time off is good. :) Use it to be productive!

(Yes indeed. Sorry, should have mentioned that before).

We have it up to about 81 F here, so while I'm inside the Dead End all day, I got some time outside yesterday. I'm also messing with story ideas and have a journal about it, if you want to have a look-see and maybe offer some input? I doubt you suck. Just try your best!

I figured it can't hurt to cross-platform).

I need to do more walking. I've been lazy all winter and now that it's getting nice, I have no excuses anymore, ha.

Faces are hard. My mom used to draw a lot when she was younger, and she said noses are especially annoying. I wouldn't know a good stick figure if I fell over it, so that's why I write.

Here's a link to what I've been thinking over for a story: I'm stuck on what approach to take, so untuil I can resolve it, I can't bring myself to write much. =/

Here, the weather can be weird. It literally runs hot and cold. Like, there will be sun outside, but when you get there, it's chilly. So screw that, I think, and then I get on the scale the next day like, 'T__T.'

Eyes are also hard, depending on the shape you want to go with. I'm sure there are some tutorials you can use posted online?

See, that was what I thought too. Both sides could manipulate them too, so in a way, they're also experiencing what the last two who had their magic did. But then there's some appeal to, 'Wow, now that we have our memories back...we were some real jerks back then.' They're also adults, though, so I need to find a way to have them come into their own with magic without making it too cheesy/cliche. >>

And thanks. You have more confidence than I do in that.

I was just outside again and it's getting to be a bit uncomfortable in the 'direct heat' department. Fun stuff.

I have some of those too. :) I need to dig them out from when my room got rearranged. I got a new bed and dresser set, so everything needed to be packed up before the new furniture was moved in. Which books do you have? Mine were in a series.

Yeah, I could. I mean, I'm waiting for some people to say them losing their past life memories is like a disassociation disorder and so, is like, totes offensive and the story is trash, because sadly, I've seen similar things happen. That's why I'm kind of leery of that idea.

But then I'm also wanting to read stories with protags with past lives, just to get my brain working. I just need to find some. I was going to try that out and pick whatever one seems to work best, then make an outline and go from there.

Going from 60-something to 81 is a bit of a jump. I'll be at work all day, so I guess it won't be so bad? I get off early tomorrow, but it's supposed to rain, so I guess we'll see how that plays out.

Back in the day they had a 'How to Draw Manga' series. I have some books from that (how to draw young men and women, as well as clothes and couples). If you can find them used, they're good for learning that style, although there are some that are good for realism too. It depends on what you wan to aim for.

The new bed is good, but the mattress is firmer. I need one of those bed pad things because sometimes I get a sore back. The new dressers have space, though, so that's good.

It can be hard for sure. Some types of outside feedback are more useful than others, I've noticed. I guess I should try out both (although it scares me to write anything anymore since I'm worried about getting it wrong) and see what happens. I can't say I have too much optimism, but that's just how I can get when it comes to my own writing.

I have stores close to me, so that's my excuse when I go out walking. I need to save money for a car though, so I need to make trips less often to the stores. Maybe try a short trip around the block?

It's been a long time since I got mine, so I don't know if they're still in print. If not, E-bay has them for sure. They're good when it comes to genre things too. I saw you posted that you miss OSW. I do too when it comes to some things, but am trying to get back into RP. Want me to link you if I find something promising?

I've been looking but price has been an issue, unfortunately.

I joined the comm, so I should check that out. I'll try to be on AIM tonight too. :)

I don't like going places alone sometimes either, but I don't have a lot of options. I'm saving up for crapcar, so while I do know how to drive in theory, I suck in practice.

They are, yeah. :/ They weren't too bad when I bought them. Maybe if you advertise more, you'll get more people to join the comm?

I have to head out to hell and won't be home until tonight. I'll try to catch you on and if not, you may get a double reply here. Have a good one. :)

Brain conked out last night fairly early and AIM decided to be weird again on me. I'm home earlier tonight, so I should be back on for at least a little while. :)
