For the first time in over a year, I'm gonna be taking a trip, and going to a museum! I'm all excited; gonna drive down to Toledo, Ohio, and see the exhibit, "Wayne Thiebaud at 100", at the Toledo Art Museum. I've always loved his stuff since seeing the cakes painting in DC, and here he is, still active at 100 years old! His works tend to make me hungry : )





Love the texture of the paint, on the canvas; will be fun to see up close.

I've never been to Toledo, but should be fun; might go the glass museum as well, time permitting.

(Also going to visit an old college friend, who just got vaccinated; it seems kinda unreal, how long all this isolation has dragged on for)

...and it can't be soon enough! I forgot after I moved back up here, that winter lasts 5 or 6 months. But makes you really appreciate summer more, that's for sure.

Agreed!
Albeit this year was pretty decent to be honest.Not nearly as much snow as last year, and other then that recent two week cold snap back in Feb, it was pretty mild all winter.

I sometimes wonder if I should move to Florida. I love reptile pets so much but the cost for extra heating (heat lamps and heat pads) in NYC is insane. Bluegh.
They may be discounted in Chinatown, since there are a lot of discount pet and pet supply stores there.

A lack of responses from the different literacy agents is getting to me again, who I have sent a story off to. I'm desprate for some kind of response because I really want to do more writing in the future and work further on the story in that novel. Getting the story released is the first step to that. There are people I know who are suggesting I write something else so I've got something extra on hand, but I don't want to write something else for regular comsumption until the actual original story is out there, and if it doesn't become successful it will throw such a big wrench into my plans that I wouldn't want to work on other stories and settings I have on hand, especially with how much time I've spent on this idea. It would just be too painful.

Writing even a short story before hearing back on the original novel would feel like giving up on it. I have tried my hand on a fanfic as per vote... but it hasn't garnered that much attention, and I have ran out of muse to try it, as it has proven more difficult than I hoped to write.

Becoming increasingly bored hasn't done me any favors there either. I'm not getting as much joy from gaming, which leaves art, and my own perfectionism gets in the way of that. So I'm stuck in a deepening slump.

Furries and drama. Gotta have that damn high school-tier addiction to pointless drama.

Buuuut it's Kero, so eh, it's kinda justified?

Except there's nothing pointless about that drama. That drama just need to leave, like, forever.

Hey. I haven't seen you in awhile.

First off, my general disclaimer is I haven't sent my fiction off to an agent or publisher, take what I say with a grain of salt. It may help to revise the manuscript for any grammatical errors and rework the plot for general audience depending what you are writing, as a starting point. However, I don't know what genre you are writing in and you're apparently in the UK, which is difficult market to publish in, particularly for science fiction and fantasy, because publishing houses there are looking to also market their books and authors here in the States, since the American literary market is larger.

So you may have more luck looking for American publishers to print your book than UK publishers.

Another aspect to consider is that a lot science fiction and fantasy imprints often look for sequels to works before agreeing to publish, so it can be easier to market a series rather than a stand-alone.
