Hello, world! I’m back and I’m going to
try and update this bad boy once a week. Hopefully it’ll help me, because I’ve been singing the same tune for too long (a lot of you have heard me say this before).
I have been too lazy in my writing. I have so much to say and it’s hidden behind a relentless wall of laziness and procrastination. But the big “3-0” approaches and I’m running out of time. Who wants to hear the stories of a desperate old man? (Not that 30 is old, but I feel like I may be writing something similar to this in another ten years if I don’t get off of my butt now.) So it’s time that I either fight for my dream, or accept my reality. And the reality I’m living (career-wise) is not something I want.
My dream ten years ago was to save the world. I’m not lying…that’s really what I wanted. To do so much good that it impacted people and made the world a better place, yet in these past ten years I’ve probably contributed more negative things than positive things in this world while compromising on some of my beliefs/morals (nothing too bad, just things that I’ve wanted to change about myself that I haven’t for one reason or another).
I need to stand up and take responsibility for my actions/inactions. I need to make something of myself. Fight for those dreams that I still have.
Before time runs out on me.
So I sit here today telling you that I will do what needs to be done.
And not even I will get in my way this time…
Also, it’s been 10 years since I lost one of the most influential people in my life. She was a second mother to me and had the heart and soul of an angel. She was one of the most loving people I have ever met, and the world is worse off without her. I know she watches my family and I from above, and I know she had the biggest smile on her face when I got married. Titi, thank you for looking out for us and we love you and miss you!
So almost a month ago I married the woman of my dreams. She is a beautiful person who supports me even when I don’t deserve it. She makes me laugh and encourages me to better myself. I love her so much and could not be happier that I now get to call her my wife. I’m lucky to have her in my life and I can’t imagine life without her. I love you Janie Osborne!
So here is an update on where some of the projects that I’m working on stand.
Of Gods and Men: The first issue has been written and is in the editing stage right now. You can check the prequel out at the ‘Comics’ tab above. Thinking about starting a ‘Kickstarter’ campaign for it once I get a few issues written. I will update you all as I progress.
The Crystal Wars: This is my manga! I have a lot of story notes on this one and the first chapter has been written. Can’t afford the pages right now for it, but I’m excited for when I can get down to it.
Anthology: Plotting out my story for an anthology I’m working on with my brother. I hope to start writing it by next week. The goal is to have an anthology fully complete by the time MegaCon comes back around, and we get a table for it.
Have a web-series and a short which I’m psyched to start working on! We have some important things we have to do for it (like get equipment lol), but I’m confident that we’ll get it going soon!
