Hello there. Welcome to my world of Random Thoughts. In this world I’ll be posting stuff about anime and manga. Not to mention various other topics. I may post the occasional music video every now and than. And from time to time, I’ll just talk about my life in general. But first, here are a few things about me.

I was born an only child, for one thing. Originally I was planning to go into art professionally, but recently I’ve been more inclined towards writing. I still do the occasional wallpaper every now and then though, and I also still draw a little. But much of my energy these days goes into writing fan fiction. I’ve also recently become interested in archive and library work, which is something I’ve discovered I’m good at. Finally, like most people on the Internet, I like cats.

That’s pretty much all you need to know about me. I'm not sure how often I'll post something here, but I'll try to as often as I can. In the meantime, I hope you all enjoy visiting.

Ugh/Help Please?/Challenges

This weekend hasn't exactly gone as smoothly as I hoped. It started out pretty good though. For one thing I finally got my 500th wallpaper done. If you haven't seen it yet, here it is. ...

Wallpaper Suggestions Please?

So a couple days ago I created my 499th wallpaper. Which means the next one will be the big Five Double-O. Obviously I want to do something special for this wallpaper but I'm kinda stuck. Right now I'm thinking crossover, but beyond that I'm sure what to do. I also don't want to do anything overly self promoting. So at the moment I'm open to suggestions. If anyone has an idea or some advice, please feel free to share.

Hieroglyphics

Does anyone know where to find a good picture of a wall with Ancient Egyptian Hieroglyphics? I sort of need one to use as a wallpaper background. I've found a lot of pictures of the pyramids, but no good pictures of hieroglyphics. If anyone knows where I can find a good picture, please let me know. I'd really appreciate it.

Followup To Last Post

As the title says, this is a followup to my post from last night. I'd like to thank everyone who gave me their advice. It was all very helpful. So this is what I've decided to do. For starters I'm just going to work on my current story once a week. That's sort of how I started working on it, but I ended up getting on a roll and ran with it more. But clearly it feels like I need to go back to doing it that way. I think I just need to slow down a little.

For the rest of the time during the week (and I don't mean just this week) I'll just work on other stuff. This week I'll probably just work on outlines for stories and wallpapers. Actually today I've started an outline for this one story I've been trying to get going for practically the entire month. I'm not sure yet when I'll be able to get the actual story off the ground, but one thing at a time. So again, thanks to everyone who gave their advice on what to do.

Burned Out and Blocked

So I'm starting to feel a little burned out at the moment. I've been working on this one story quite a lot for the last few months and I'm starting to feel like I need a break. Especially since the last chapter hasn't been getting very good response. Normally when this happens I pretty much just step back and work on something else. But when I try I just feel blocked and I can't quite seem to get the other story out of my head. Any advice?
