We're the better part of the way through the good ol' British summer time and it won't be long before my kiddos are headed back to school. It's been a pretty decent summer so far in many ways. The weather's been almost unbearably hot up until the last week or so but now we seem to be getting fall weather trying to sneak in.
I've always loved this time of year. For some reason it makes me feel far more alive, but there's also a bit of a sadness there as well.
Anyway, corniness aside, I've slowly been trying to crawl out of my uncreative hole. I've lingered there far too long. It's a place where I am trying to hang on desperately to things that just will never change or will be resolved or that I'll never have the answers to. It's a place where I got stuck. At the time, it was a comfortable place, a place where I felt valued and appreciated and had a shared excitement for projects yet to come. But things changed, and rapidly, and it's taken me the better part of three years to move on. I'm really hoping that I'm getting there. I've been trying to do more painting and writing, although not much of it ever gets finished or even gets put up here. I have ideas, things I'd love to do, but I just get bogged down in details and come to a standstill.
On a more positive note, I've been working with on our tumblr, A Softer Fallout. We're both pretty pleased and excited with the reception we've had so far. It's fair to say we work in fits and starts on it, but hey, we do work on it!
Also, the effort of working two jobs has paid off! This morning my husband ordered my new GAMING LAPTOP! I enjoy taking screenshots and putting together comics for Fallout 3 and Fallout: New Vegas and this laptop is going to make a huge difference to the quality of my shots. It should be here in the next week or two and I can't wait!
