this is very frustrating. i took close to two weeks off, so i could try to work on my writing skills, and perhaps get way ahead on my self-imposed deadlines. i figured i could spend a week or so doing nothing but write, write, write, until i had written enough material that i could make quality cartoons from it. no such luck. after spending MANY hours working with only a pencil and a notebook, i only managed to write and draw ONE strip, about four hours ago. a pretty mediocre strip. i just wanted to scan it and upload it and never see it again, but it turns out that my brand-new scanner (the reason that i've been broke for the past three weeks) has stopped working, for reasons i could only stab at blindly with my pitiful computer knowledge. just blinks its lamp like an idiot. i would have posted a lengthy apology, much like this, on my front page, but it would appear that my own computer's modem has forgotten how to dial up. doesn't work. i'm posting this entry from the other computer downstairs, and i can't exactly update my page from here because the last time i tried to accomplish command-line FTP, disasterous things happened. so, for the edification of my more curious readers who might check the forum every once in a while, i'm posting this explanation.
so basically, i tried! i really did. i wanted to get some quality writing done, and leave myself a reasonable amount of time in which to draw everything. i'm certainly at the end of my emotional tether... i guess all artists have probably had times like this.
and while i'm bitching about everything... i broke one of my guitar pegs today, rendering the instrument a 5-stringed useless bastard! it's like a grin with one tooth missing. what a world. what a damn world.
well anyway, i don't know when you'll see updates on my page. i'm really sorry.
