I was just reminded that, it's almost that time of year - NaNoWriMo time.  Childe-Of-Fyre shared this on Facebook and it's just all too true. LOL

This means in 11 days, I will be buried in my attempts to write. I have 4 days to decide if I'm going to work on an older project or try to start a brand new one. It's not like I'm lacking for ideas for new material. To be honest I'm torn between three projects - The Tunorea Chronicles (which as many know is one I've been working on for some time now), Wasteland which is one that I haven't started writing on at all, and an untitled project about two brothers that are princes (I've got artwork for that story on my website). I'll probably meditate on this to help me pick. LOL Then after that, I'll spend a week in prep mode, getting all my story notes and files gathered together. Maybe I might even actually get some art produced - cause heavens knows that hasn't been happening since the whole data loss fiasco.

United States
I've been a writer for the vast majority of my life. At age eleven I wrote a short story about a dragon, and my mom and my aunt were floored that I'd used the phrase "murderous hatred" to describe the look in the dragon's eyes. Getting that reaction fueled me to keep writing. As I got older however, I started to long for ways to give my characters a visual presence, even if only to help me better connect with them. As I cannot draw, this started with finding images from various places, but using another's work (like anime and such) was not satisfying, and didn't help fully. Then, I found 3D art. It took me years to grasp and be able to make anything that resembled a completed image and I'm still learning of course but I feel that finally I can put faces on some of my characters.
