It's Quiet ... TOO Quiet...

I realize I've been very quiet lately ... before, during, and after Dragon*Con I've been as busy as a one-legged man at a butt-kicking contest. Today was the first day that I didn't have to be somewhere, do something, draw somebody, or meet someone for the purpose of going places, doing things, and drawing people. Not that I didn't do all those things today as well ... just that I could do it on a slower and more self-directed pace. I started by sleeping until 10:00 in the morning, which is a rare, rare luxury for me any more and I make no apologies.

Anyway, now that all the extra butts have been kicked and I'm back down to the regular butt-kicking allotment (so to speak), I hope to get back to my usual chatty self ... or at least, to some extent. See, I do a lot of my long-winded posts during slow periods at work while rustling up other stuff to do ... but right now I'm in Novelist Mode, which means that I may very well turn my attention to writing fiction in my off-moments rather than pontificating on my LJ. I've been working on Michael Macbeth in particular, but a new character has starting making vague hints at me, so I might work on polishing that idea instead, at least in the back of my mind. As much as I love Michael, I have been trying since 1996 to finish another story with him, and it hasn't panned out. My latest idea re: Isis seems good, and I'm going to keep fleshing that one out. But if it doesn't pan out either, then I'm going to want something else to work on instead.

We'll see how it goes. :) Meanwhile, I'm off to be creative. Catcha later!

Ha, Ha, Fine Joke on Me ... NOT >:E

Well, after posting my last entry, I spent the rest of the night SEARCHING FOR FILES. Everything I'd done on the Michael Macbeth / Isis idea, gone, poof.


Not on my current computer, not on my old computer, not in a transfer spot, not on a backup, nothing. Anything that didn't get into my LiveJournal is lost.

That hurts.

I'll look on my computer at work tomorrow; I don't know why it would be there, but then again I don't know why it ISN'T on my computer at home.

Be productive, he said. HA HA

EDIT: Files found! Hurrah! *whew!*
