So, Here We Are Again…

Yes, indeed.

Blogging for the masses even though over half of them don‘t know I exist. Hurrah!!

Anyway, I haven’t updated in a few days so I figured I’d do something to correct that. So, Ta Da! Here’s an update! Woot!

Let’s see now, what have I been doing lately? Well, I got the walls in my office painted. That’s something at least. Maybe now that the physical office is on its way toward completion the business will follow.

What business you ask? Well let me tell you.

I’m a photographer. I’m starting my own photography business. I plan to do portraits as well as sell art prints.

For those of you that already knew that….well, you’re awesome and you deserve some skittles!

Let’s see….What else….

Well, I’m a bit sad about a few things at the moment. Things I can, and intend to change soon. One being my writing. I have so many ideas bouncing around in my skull like a lunatic in a padded room. That’s all well and good. But what saddens me is the fact that I can’t seem to bring myself to sit down and get those ideas out. I’m having a hard time exorcising the demons so to speak. And that makes me sad.

I’m a good writer. Don’t laugh. I am. My mom told me so (well, she and my college English professor). My biggest problem is motivation, or, lack there of. That and the marvelous procrastination gene passed on to me by my father. Thanks daddy!

I guess I’m just waiting for something. I’m not really sure what that something is though. I’m telling myself that its my office. I’m waiting until it’s finished. But honestly, that’s a poor excuse. It’s in a state now where I could be down there writing and doing photography stuff, but I’m just not doing that for some reason. Lack of motivation? Probably. Procrastination? I’m sure.

I’ll have to work to change that though. Um…I’ll start working on changing that, tomorrow.

As for the other thing I’m a bit sad about…Some of my books have gone AWOL.

If you know me, or know anyone that knows me, you probably know that I’m an avid reader and that I value and treasure my books like they were my children. I mean, I get horrified and sick when I see someone toss out a book or worse, when I see someone on a design show destroy one in order to make some ugly coffee table base or something equally stupid. I love books. Just the look of them, the feel of them in my hands, the smell of them….wait, I better stop, this is starting to sound a bit sexual and that’s not what I’m aiming for. At least, not in this post!

Anyway, my books. I tend to know where all my books are at any given moment so I have little to no trouble putting my hands on the one I need or want to read. But unfortunately, I think I’ve misplaced some. A series. That’s right people, a whole freakin’ series. That’s seven books to be exact. I don’t know how I did it or when I did it, but I lost them. I can’t for the life of me find them and I’ve looked everywhere. I don’t remember loaning them out, especially the whole series. I don’t tend to do that. In fact, the only person I trust enough to loan my books to, because I treasure them so much, is my brother, and I don’t think he would have borrowed this particular series (not his style).

Oh yeah, you’re probably wondering what the series is. Even if your not, I’ll tell you, cause hey, its my blog and I can!.

“The Death Gate Cycle” by Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman.

Seven books of fantasy coolness. Well, from what I remember, they were cool. I got the series way back in high school. Figured it was time I look into them again. But when I went to look into them…what should I find? Well, nothing. Which is my point here. I can’t find them anywhere and it makes me sad.

So onward goes my search for both my motivation to write and the Death Gate Cycle novels.

I’ll be sure to let everyone know when I find one or the other. Or, if I get lucky and find them both! That’d be damn cool!

I guess that’s all for now folks.

Keep on rockin’ on!
