So, it's been forever...

Wow, wow, wow. It's been a really, REALLY long time since I've updated this! After sitting here for a while, I realized I have no idea what to say, or even if I have anything to say. Maybe that's why I was never a good blogger! I've been reading and writing a lot, and working on finishing a novel. I'm really excited about this book, because it may be one of the best things, conceptually, that I've ever written. It's a lot of fun to play with and daydream about. Painting is kind of on the back-burner because of this, I haven't stopped, I'm just not turning out as much as I used to.

It takes longer for me to paint now because I'm kind of persnickety on details, more than I was before. Not even writing comes easily, most of what I'm doing right now is snippits, scenes that just come to me while I wait for something else to move me back into the bigger picture. I finally got one of my paintings printed though! It took a lot of courage, but the payoff looks amazing on my bedroom wall, so I'm happy about that. I'm also excited about a trip I'll be taking back home, I'm really excited to see my friends again. So much has changed, and sometimes I wonder if I'm just staying the same while everything around me changes and grows older. Maybe everyone feels that way, you're with yourself so often that you never see all the little changes, that seem so obvious to everyone else.

Anyway, I'll try to update this more, if you read this far, thank you!

Happy 2013, everyone!
