Current Residence: Central Queensland, in a country slowly regaining some of its lost sanity. Slowly.|
Favourite genre of music: Hard to say, really... but I tend to favour the orchestrated, non-lyric variety.
Favourite style of art: A blend between Sci-Fi and Fantasy, mostly. I'm also a fan of watercolour work.
Personal Thought: Creating something only becomes pointless when you no longer learn or feel anything for it.
Alrighty, so time for some good news, amirite? My last appointment with the doc yesterday has given me hope that I won't be buried and forgotten anytime soon. Apparently, aside from a slight iron deficiency, my blood tests came back with near perfect results. (Thanks, God!) I'm getting on top of my anxiety issues even though I'm still not coping too well with anything stress related, but baby steps, right?
Speaking of God, I've been making more of an effort to seek Him and although troubles in the family have put Bible study nights on hold, I've been attending church again after a very long hiatus and it's been good. I've been pretty backslidden ever since my father's death, but after all that's been happening in my life nowadays I think I need food for my soul more than ever.
So what else positive is there to report? Well, I'm going to try to get back into being creative again and see where it ultimately takes me. There's that lingering temptation I have still for writing new/updating chapters for Seeds of Arcadia, but it really comes down to the support I may have for that story still. I mean, given it's been almost a year since I wrote anything for it...
And then there's the lore episodes for Nimaera which are still going ahead. Technically I'm not sure if I'm willing to call it an actual 'story' story, but rather a focused attempt at covering a lot of things in a format I've written in descriptions for my art in the past. In a sense it's easier to write this way, but it's also a subject matter that isn't as straightforward as my usual fantasy stuff.
And then there's another project I've had in mind. Sure, one reason I've been all over the place coming up with random story concepts is that I've been feeling for what folks are interested in learning more about. There was that story centred around the lore behind Cat Island I thought about earlier in the year, but since no one said anything about it... well, need I say anymore? lol, so I've been meaning to write a story that focuses on Klaus and Shae and I may have found a way to do that. Not entirely sure on the details just yet but it's in relation to someone asking about how they first met and what came of it? Well... that in itself could very well be a standalone story, so...
So! Any thoughts, questions, etc? At least for now Nim's lore can be a temporary focus.
And now for something that I just couldn't help but laugh at because... talk about a train wreck. XD
