And we’re back!
Hello, and welcome, to the grand reopening of Weird as Usual. I was gone for longer than I thought I was going to be, because as you might have noticed, it is not September. But that’s okay.
So what was I up to during my hiatus? Not much, if I’m honest. College has been taking up most of my time, so I haven’t really been doing much creative stuff. A little drawing, a little writing, nothing to write home about. In other news, I read, played Minecraft, and watched Avatar: the Last Airbender for the first time. I haven’t finished it yet, so no spoilers! I’m halfway through book three. I watched the first episode of Haikyuu because I tend to avoid any media about sports and I was wondering if I was missing anything, and I liked it. I rearranged my room. I met a very friendly cat at the local park. I discovered an underground society of mole people. I went kayaking. Just normal stuff.
Now that Weird as Usual is back in business, what’s the plan? Well, pretty much what I was doing before. Writing about whatever I feel like that week. The only consistency on this blog is the lack of consistency, as it should be.
Speaking of future plans, you might be wondering, but NC! What happened to The Wishmaker? Did you work on it at all whilst you were gone? Which is a great question and you’re very smart for asking. Here’s the deal: when I started this blog, it was going to be writing and book centric. You might have noticed I have, tragically, strayed from my roots. Well, not so tragically, because I’m having a good time. But this is what I’ve been thinking about- I don’t think this is a place to post stories right now. It’s just not what I do here anymore. Maybe I will sometime in the future, but not now.
So I’m not sure what I’m going to do with the Wishmaker, or if I’m going to do anything with it at all. The bits and pieces of it are there, but it’s far from being something I would ever share. (haha that rhymed) In conclusion, if I’m going to publish The Wishmaker, it probably won’t be here. And maybe I will publish it someday, maybe I won’t. And I’ll let you in on a little secret: I don’t really write all that much. Lately, I like drawing better. *horrified gasps from the audience* So if the Wishmaker was ever going to make a return, it might not even be in book form. Maybe as, like, a one-shot comic.
Okay, I think that’s everything I wanted to cover. I’m still posting every other week on Saturdays, so tune in then. Not anytime other than that because if I find you here on a weekday I will chase you off with a baseball bat.
Just kidding. Maybe.
If you want to see more art-related stuff, go on to my Instagram account, that’s usually where I post art. I’m not doing Inktober this year, but I’m still kinda sorta active on there. (Though I still have no idea how most of it works, I’m trying. Have some patience with your grandma, kiddos. XD)
Stay fresh and funky, fellow groovy dudes.
And we’re back!
