A week has gone by and I've finished more of my story tham I have managed to put down in the five years I've been here. I feel like I haven't felt in ages... I feel like myself. I know much of what I do is completely silly and probably has no audience, but -I- am so happy!
This story has been kicking around my head since the first snow-fall of our time here in State College. The characters have been going endlessly in circles until... now... and I feel like all the pieces are falling together. Though, heck knows if they are. ;) I'll need to pester my sisters/editors to read the first 100 pages (<- okay, it's 91, but the day has just begun!).
Next week I'll begin things that have substance other than words offer... I really can't wait to have a shop full of items on Etsy! Dolls and pictures and plush monsters and jewelry, hazzah! Once that's done... I'll begin illustrating my story! Vanity publishing... here I come!
*The picture with this post was a commission... my first attempt at a Pern dragon... unless you count those fire lizard doodles back in middle school...? The dragon is gold and shiny, but the scanner hates gold and shiny...
