I've been checking out stuff on deviantart for a long time now and at this point I figure it's time to give something back

Mostly my artistic medium is writing. I write fiction most of the time and that should be what is seen here. I'm hoping to get some feedback on my work. I do want to hone my craft. I have also been known to scribble up a landscape or a poster for some of my favorite TV Shows, movies, or bands. Nothing fancy just for fun.

I hope folks like what I bring to the table.
Interests
I am having focus problems. I've probably always had focus problems that everyone else was aware of but I'm only just coming to realize. I just want to sit and read something online sometimes but then I get distracted by something else I want to read. Then suddenly it's like an hour later and I'm no further along in anything.

It doesn't help that I don't have much to focus on in my life. I'm looking for work still but I'm just tired of it. I've sent out a ton of applications and nothing even remotely like an interview has been offered. I'm trying to keep my hopes up and stay positive but I've been just stuck in a depressing funk for months now. I'm sure anyone who has been reading my posts here can see that...

On the plus side when I have been focused I've been working on my book! I am in the home stretch on my first draft. It has been a long and inconsistent journey so I expect a lot of editing. But it is good to get it out of my head, you know? Sometimes if you keep something in your head you can just kinda start to hate it. Not the case with this but that's kind of why some of my stories here broke down. I kept them in my head and lost the thread. Then I couldn't think of what could come next that connects everything and then the wheels fell off. Maybe they weren't very good to start with...But I hope my novel will continue to be a point of focus in my life.

I've been watching Orphan Black this week and it is awesome! Also go see Captain America the Winter Solider because it is really a great conspiracy movie and a fantastic action movie. I can only come up with a few negitive things to say about it which might come later this week. I plan to do quick hits on all the other movies I've watched since...oh about fall. And Iron Man 3 and Star Trek 2. I keep forgetting those ones. Or I'm too tired, whatever.

Until next time

Hi!  Thought you might like to know that I found out what was going on with scribd.com when I recommended "Stein on Writing."  Turns out that scribd was just changing over to a new subscription only format.  It hadn't affected my activity there at the time.  But now the changeover is complete.  The only way to read online or download full versions of their books is to trade a document, or take a subscription.  Used to be you could read anything anytime for free - only had to trade or pay to download.  

So sorry for misdirecting you.

Still kicking.  While I've got some income, now, expenses exceed it, so still in the same sinking boat.  Drawing takes all my time, so can't even think about ways to make money writing.  Praying that it comes together soon.
