I live! Kinda.  
So those [community profile] aather and [insanejournal.com profile] sabra_la_tau games that I mentioned I needed distraction from?

I kind of joined them.

SEE WHAT YOU DID, INTERNET.

So that's what I've been doing lately, along with reading Diana Wynne Jones' Enchanted Glass and tearing through all of Kimi ni Todoke in one weekend. I've been trying to push more art practice and writing progress out of me, but it's still really tough for reasons I have yet to figure out. I swear I didn't have this much trouble a few years back. Maybe it's because I'm tired all the time now?

I have made some progress in the character development for the Mahou Shounen thing, so that's encouraging. Research for the game idea, however, is at a standstill, partly because I keep checking out awesome books and then... don't get around to reading them for whatever reason. Stuff for [personal profile] after_nightfall has been progressing in bits and tiny pieces, and I need to keep telling myself that I don't have the time to try and join Dreamwidth's development team, much as I would love to and everyone on there is awesome. (I guess I'll have to keep throwing my money at them instead.)

I did head down to Geek Girl Con last month (which was amazing), and that on top of Halloween on top of friends leaving for Spain on top of concerts a few weeks before might have just been too much. I've been having trouble at work, too. November and December are looking to be much quieter, so we'll see if that changes things.

In other news, I've been hearing very mixed reviews about Wacom's new Inkling. Does anyone actually own one who'd be willing to give an opinion?

Guys guys  
Guys give me something to talk about other than incoherent fangirling over all the awesome players and threading at [insanejournal.com profile] sabra_la_tau. It's just making me want to play like crazy or at [community profile] aather's parallel awesomeness but I've done this too many times before not to know how it'll end up. Saaaave meeeee.

On the upside, I'm doing more drawing! Kind of? Hopefully this will continue to be a trend.

There is nothing else interesting going on in my life. Still coming up with ridiculous transformation items and convoluted world rules for everyone-is-a-magical-girl verse. Still researching for the Mystery video game of Mystery (I'm doing it ass-backwards so the plot is coming first, then mechanics, then the actual learning of the programming). I'm loving First Nations culture more and more the deeper I get into it. I've always loved the art and mythology, ever since I discovered the Museum of Civilization back in Ottawa, and the societal structures and ways of living are fascinating. Plus there's been a lot of awesome related specials on TV lately, leading to my discovery of stuff like this and this, which excites me to no end. I hope I can do the culture justice. ahh so much research ahhh
