Back to work (and the struggles of writers block)

So, I went back to work at the beginning of May. I’m happy to say that everyone missed me (even got an ovation from one coworker!!) and there wasn’t too much left undone from when I went on leave in January.

Doesn’t mean it’s been a total gas, though; I still have a weak back and been going back to the chiropractor since restarting work. Least I don’t hurt as bad as I did before…

In other bad news, I am struggling with that common enemy of writers everywhere. That’s right, I ran into a block-a WRITERS BLOCK. Got a TnV story in the works, but I don’t know how to continue the story. But I will persevere!

I’m sorry that I haven’t posted too often lately. I hope to fix that, starting today. Till next time!

Get Up Soldier

Get up, get up

The enemy’s near

Get up get up

Before they are here

Arm up, arm up

Pick up your armor and sword

Arm up, arm up

And take heart the Lord’s word

Stand up, stand up

They’re lining in rows

Shields up, shields up

They’re raining arrows

Fight on, soldier

We will win

And when the fighting is done

The reveling will begin!

Back to Work

Started working again! Gonna be mostly weekend mornings, so I will have time to do things on weekdays and afternoons.

Glad they’re taking it slow with me to be honest. My first day was Monday morning, and it was busy! My foot ached from all the walking I had to do, but I got through it. Proud of that.

I am working on a new TnV story-a sort of mid season finale. Be on the lookout for that. Till next time!

Sanctuary Isle-Geography and History

The picture featured is my VERY FIRST attempt at drawing geography. This is an original island nation, formerly known as Atlantis, renamed after the Atlantean capital of Attuna sunk along with half the island during a titanic tussle between the super-powered immortal called Demigod and a gigantic wraith made of fire and shadow known as Agemmnos.

The sunken capital has become part of a sunken district populated by a race of amphibious aliens called Zantaurians (they’re kinda like humanoid dolphin-people) while the new capital has been designated as Sanc. There is an intergalactic market (the Galactic Terminal Market) in San Mordeno, and plenty of crime in the nearby Mixed Slums (thanks to lax practices in the early part of First Contact a lot of criminal ETs live on Earth).

The sunken geography features an underwater mountain range full of fish life and coral reefs, which is good for the Zantaurians (and great for Zantaurian fishing businesses!) and the cliffs off to the South are home to another of Sanctuary Isle’s famous citizens, Agatha Prentiss Apple (a former High Regent and pre-cog, as well as the nation’s oldest resident.) The nation itself is located off the coast of Portugal/Spain, and stands as the gateway to the Atlantic and the Americas….

I will talk more about this world and its lore if you’d like. Till Next Time!

Disability Blues: The Bombshell

Today, I was delivered an atom bomb.

I been out of work for a long time (two 1/2 months) with a back injury. I been calling, and calling, and waiting for a call to schedule a evaluation, cause I thought that’s what I needed to get back to work.

I get a call from the benefits coordinator for my job, and GUESS WHAT MOFOS?!? I was supposed to be working since February 1st! And my doctor conveniently FORGOT TO TELL ME!!

So now, I am wracked with anxiety over when I should go back to work and wether I even have a job anymore! I could’ve known sooner if I had just done more advocating for myself. Let this be a lesson to anyone who is disabled and working: NEVER STOP ADVOCATING FOR YOURSELF.

Well, that’s all the rant I have left. Till next time!

Disability Blues, Pt. 4&3/4

Dropping by with a quick life update! Thought it important to let you know what’s going on in my life… all one of you who still care…

Filed for unemployment yesterday. Been two months since I last worked so I figured it was time. Not happy, or proud of doing that. It feels like I thrown in the towel honestly.

Since I have this free time I figure I would start some new story projects. One of those I hope to make a full-fledged comic. Still in the early stages, so there isn’t a lot that I can say. But if luck has it in a year or so I may have something to show you all.

Till next time!!

Disability Blues part 3-THE CRIPPLING!!!

Hey all! I hope you’re doing well. Me? I’m not sure. My back has been hurting more lately. The pain is centered around the right shoulder blade. Hurts to reach or put pressure on it.

I wish this wasn’t happening. I’m too young to be so feeble. Well, at least I can pay my bills, if not much else. But now I’m feeling bad for myself.

Hopefully this pain is temporary. I hope all of you are doing well. Stay safe, and till next time…
