Hello everyoneeee <33
How have you all been? Hopefully wonderful and happy ;w; I love you all!
I’ve been really busy with babysitting, work, and con prep! AND when I’m not doing those things, I’m trying to fit in writing and reading time. LET ME TELL YOU – it’s challenging XD BUT I’m enjoying myself most of the time, so I really can’t complain.
I figured you all deserved another update so you all know I’m still active and so you can get an idea of what I’ve been working on AND my plans for the coming months!! I’ll try not to ramble too much haha.
SO—the convention!!! I’ll be going to Momocon in Atlanta, GA May 23-25 ~~ SO if anybody watching me is going- come find me and sakuraartist!! We will be in Artist Alley selling awesome art and stuffff (: I’m cosplaying as “amnesiac” Percy from Son of Neptune >w> I ordered my Camp Jupiter shirt and necklace already and my amazing friend TinyMintyWolf is making me Riptide <3333 ;w; I’m so thankful and super excitedddd!
I’ll be mostly selling traditional badges and bookmarks and a few pictures – I’ll be uploading my con work soon so all of you can see!! I’m doing original character and Percy Jackson universe art X) AND I’m having a lot of fun with it! It’s a lot of work though XD OH- and I will also be selling marriage certificates – if you want to know what that is exactly – ask me! I’ll have an example soon (:
SO YEAH. Other than that fun – I’ve been struggling to figure out my focus. There’s a lot I want to do, and well – a couple weeks ago I FINALLY figured out what I really want to focus on. A new project or mission I’m going to be calling “Repairing Love”. I’m very bothered on how hard it is to find innocent, clean love stories – love stories that are really good, fun stories that don’t turn dirty and smutty.
I’ll go more into detail about that in a separate journal for those of you who are interested. But I’m really excited about it – it’s something weighing heavy on my heart.
Other than that I’m also focusing on:
+ Jude and Robin’s story which will have several parts and/or short stories – there are 4 chapters out so far of “Falling Stars” – which is the first part of their story (:
+ “Hope Behind Struggle” – which will be a 4-part story, I’ll also go more into detail about this soon.
+ And then I’ll be working on some projects with friends – “Safekeepers” a webcomic with sakuraartist. A story and possible comic with TheOriginalNunky (that still needs a name). And there are a couple other possibilities with a few other friends BUT we shall see (: I don’t want to spread myself too thin when there’s so much I want to dooo!
Okay- I have one more topic to discuss before I runaway to type up the info on Repairing Love and Hope Behind Struggle. I’ve decided to put Serenity Academy on the backburner. Over the last few months I’ve been trying CONSTANTLY to get myself back into it, because I love the story and the characters so much, and I know a lot of you guys love it too. But all it has been doing to me is stirring up memories and sadness. That story and those characters were created with someone else – my brother, and so when I try and do anything with them, it just feels off. My inspiration and motivation to do anything with that series is gone. But I refuse to completely trash it, because I do hope to do something more with it someday. So for now, I plan to focus on other things, and if my inspiration and drive to work on SA returns – I will work on it again, once I figure out its purpose. It’s such a big project too. I’m hoping maybe the right person might come along to fill Tim’s shoes eventually and become my partner with it. But until then, I’m setting it aside completely. I can’t keep fretting over it, it just ends up messing with my head and I start to feel sad and guilty. ): I hope you all can understand where I’m coming from.
OKAY- well, thanks for reading (: YOU ARE SO AWESOME IF YOU READ ALL THAT. Seriously ;w;
I’m gonna type up another journal soon that will go more in depth about “Restoring Love”, “Hope Behind Struggle”, and the other things I’m working on. And maybe, just maybe you’ll start to see some art uploads of con prep >w>
Thanks again guys!
I love you all so much – (And I’m still replying to notes – don’t think I’m ignoring you or forgot. Life is just REALLY distracting right now >.< )
PEACE OUT ~~~
