And another Work In Progress, about 1/2 to 2/3 of all that I have, but I don't feel comfortable with the other parts yet. I've never worked in this way on artwork before, things have been new and not entirely easy. And there are so many clothes, I'm hardly used to that, lol u.u It's far from perfect. I hope to move on from the 'naive' at some point, heh.
Not much talk right now as I fell asleep about an hour ago and almost missed posting. I sort of fear I might still fall asleep while typing, it's going very slowly, lol.
You know how I often say that I love something, yeah? You should also know me enough to know that when I say 'I love' I mean it. Because really, I don't say it all that much - not through the day, not in my life - you're just mostly present when I say it.
Read the summary, man, read the summary, it is perfection. The story's given me trouble and shown me what I can't do. It forces me to think about my life and actually look for ways to finally try and improve it. Frankly, it may come at the worst time possible, or perhaps the most fitting, with me having turned 30 while reading it and developing a bit of a crisis about how I haven't done so many things in my life so far, and how I'm not going anywhere.
It's one of those stories that will make you feel good about life and the world and the people in it. You'll love the characters and the wit and the bits of wisdom, and oh, a couple of other things x)

Summary of the story: Dan "The Preacherman" Ashcroft has accepted that "well futile" isn't just a moronic saying - it's a way of life- but every time Dan tries to give in to despair, hope rears its ugly head and lures him back to reality.
Discovering he has a fully grown daughter from a (very) youthful affair with a brilliant writer leads Dan to reflect on his life (and drink a lot of whiskey). It also sets in motion a series of events that could very well change his life for the better. Can Dan change? Can he accept love, success and good fortune? Dan is pretty sure the answer is a hard 'no' but hope springs eternal.
Like an incurable STD.
