Redecorating

X3, Pimped it out with some of my cleaner old pics. I wanted a soft grey with orange earlier today so here it is! Now, to actually get to sleep before dawn.

Getting pumped for Nanowrimo!

Unfortunately I didn't have scanner access, so I decided to keep on plotting my "Impure Rubies" plot. *mwuahaha* While I was at it, also began to clean my super cluttered desk. I was forced to retreat to my bed to draw but now I can see the wood! 
And I took down anything not relating to my first novel, which was pretty much everything, but now I have space to stick luminescent orange notes to. :D 
On the other side of this small desk is where I do my artistic things, I've taken to using a clipboard.


And what I'm now frantically rereading, *all the while laughing to death*, favorite how-to book:


Excerpt from the back of the book: 

"What do you think of my fiction book writing?" the aspiring novelist extorted. 
"Darn," the editor hectored in turn. "I can not publish your novel! It is full of what we in the business call 'really awful writing.'"
"But how shall I absolve this dilemma? I have already read every tome available on how to write well and get published!" The writer tossed his head about, wildly.
"It might help," opined the blonde editor, helpfully, "to ponder how NOT to write a novel, so you might avoid the very thing!"

It makes me laugh and cringe in shame as I see some traits of that in my own writing, so I must be partly masochistic to keep rereading this. I love it though :3

And throughout all of this, I know I'll have the support of Mama Thug Cat. Who is smaller than a sofa cushion, but picks fights with my 200 something pound black Lab. And wins.

Seriously, if your dog is about the size of a housecat, she'll basically eat it alive.

First :}

Haha, this is really just a dumping ground for visual progress on my "L33t Drawing Skillz", my original novel "Impure Rubies" and its sequels (Imagine that, five books in the works and not one word written *cry*), and any other subject I wish to gush over in an obsessive manner in a nice, neat blog.


If all goes well, tomorrow I might have access to a scanner (a friend who has taken pity on me) to start hauling in sketches on to this. No tablet, (or color) I'm afraid, since mine is still broken and there is no new one on the horizon for now./stoicmanlytears.
