I’ve an issue for several months that finally made me go to the hospital today. Well, if i’m stuck 3 hours in a lobby i’ve got to somehow make use of that time. That’s the nature of being an independent ; work need to be done. Turn up that, yes, an hospital lobby is a great place for a writer! There’s – nothing – going on. It’s boring as hel (Note, Hel is probably not boring). Which mean there is no distraction! I ended up having my most productive 3 hours writing session in years. 16 pages got written and that almost wrapped up the current chapter as i was writing pages for the epilogue at that point. If i’m at home doing the same thing, a page usualy take 30 minutes if things goes well, 1 hours if things doesn’t go well (aka some urgent matters such as one of the artist of the studio contacting me).
So yes, lots of writing. That make the editor, Thalar, quite happy.

Regarding cameos. There’s still 3 people pending confirmation/payment. When this is a cleared up i’ll be able to tally a total. Rune, Synathra and Beau barbare.

We decided to make a new skype group that focus solely on daily art practice clocked to 20 minutes. All of us start at the same time , have the same topic and must end exactly at 20 minutes. No spilling over! Put the pen down kind of thing and just show the others. Sure we ended up chatting for 40 minutes about it but it’s the nature of the beast, we’ll optimize things. For day 1 Mau chose “Oc in pre-historic clothes.”
Prehistoric challenge
Daily challenge_prehistoric
Tomorrow Darkvolt who just joined the group will choose the topic. Why? Because it’s the most beautiful person choosing the topic. and tomorrow, Darkvolt will be majestic.

I finally completed Gem76 commission too! That one just ended up spreading across 10 days or so. It’s insane. But finally it’s done and i can move on to Bast and Cutie commissions. And on the topic of commission, Lordpanther has commissioned another daydream page. Look like that first daydream story will be remade completely in time! Which i’m glad of. That thing need to burn.
So that’s a Zair dark side page. Not much to say beside i was given a specific layout to follow. So Its not what i’d idealy choose but in the end, it’s all about making the commissioner happy.

And to wrap this news post up, there’s the saturday giveaway i ended up never posting here. Because of cameos and sleep requirement. Damn you body and your need to sleep!
For mao
For Cat
For bast and Hfar
Uwaaah is making a come back in the next chapter. Not so much her knight in not-shining armor. Bast, such a missed opportunity!

There’s an epic fanart that came in today but i’ll post it in the next update.

    Man, what happened to bring you to the hospital?

  4. Pariel says:

    Well then, get better soon. Next time, try an airport terminal… same result, less health issues.

    Writing in a hospital while you’re waiting for someone really gets things done. Although in my case it was a matter of staving off intense worry

    Bless your heart! You need to take better care of yourself and spend less time working yourself into a grave! >:C

    I kinda find it ironic that overworking got you to put off your medical issue untill it landed you in the hospital and you choose to continue the habit in the hospital!

      WAffleferret. You are both a delicious waffle and a ferret of destructive power.
      But no worries, that’s just come with the self employed job description.
