We must move on...

It's been a while since my last post. I moved through the stages of grief very slowly. You know: Denial, Anger, Sadness, Waking up wearing a wasp costume and begging for change on the street corner...all the usual steps in grief. Now I think I can move on. I have accepted that my little red warrior is dead, but I know he's in a better place...spiritually. Physically he's in the city dump.
Anyway, off of the saddness and on to the happiness. I've written more of Clairvoyant, but I haven't typed it out yet, which is why the WIP bar hasn't moved any. Don't worry, I will get on that shortly. And also, because stress is lifting a little--a little, I'm still stressed, but as much--I've begun copying down the religion for Zhivtor again. I didn't get finished because all writing accept Clairvoyant, which was my escape from the stress, took a backseat to real life. Next in Zhivtor is character design. You can't have a novel without characters. Well you could, but it would be 500 pages of grass growing and animals eating eachother, and you can watch that without paying 20 bucks for the hardcover on the Discovery Channel.
I updated my Story Information page, with a little info on Jerucia.
And finally, I've added a new page: The Writing on the Wall. Episode One of my new podcast series. Whoo!! It was fun to make, especially after I got a new microphone. The first draft was recorded with a pair of headphones. Not a headset, headPHONES. That was bad quality. I sounded like Mushmouth with a stuffy nose. Mushmouth, for you who are normal teenagers and not nerds like me, is a character from the 70's cartoon Fat Albert. Yes, there was a movie made about them, and it was good. If you watched it, I am proud. You earn a gold star. Please write your name under the "I'm A Good Student" heading on the board.
Anyway, I've also added to my Special Page.
The Writer's Talks with Aurelen and Annie are awesome, and are breaking up writer's block like a red-hot hammer to a glacier.
So anyway, that's it! Enjoy the podcast, and I've added a feature for you to send me questions in the Suggestions form. You can skip everything and just fill that out if you want, but remember to send me feedback, because hearing from fans of my blog is great. It lets me know I'm not talking to myself all the time.
'Til next time,

I really thought I commented on this. I can't remember what I commented on. I'll have to get back to you on that.
