It's rough, since my writing LJs were the primary place where my heart--the "real me" of my stories and illustrations--got to be seen, even if it was by only 1.25 people at times. I resent how much of my life gets eaten by the Peter Parker/Clark Kent/workaday "fake me", and this won't help. On the gain side, I made good progress with book 3 rewrites, finished pass 2 and launched into pass 3, and I'm pleased with how that's coming along. I also succeeded in getting the second Triune novel out of the starting gate at last, and got the outline thoroughly knocked into shape. (Up to double digits with novels!)
Then came another big setback later in April that might have huge ramifications for the next few years of my life...but on the positive side, my weight stayed decent, I got out a few times so far to enjoy the spring, was blessed by some great reads, and my art projects are slowly but decently moving forward.

As for May, I hope to keep pushing ahead with third Geren book editing and second Triune book writing, along with my current art project. Also want to get out a few more times before my newly-tailored survive-the-summer-strategy for my new home gets fully implemented and the annual battle with seasonal depression begins. Spring is always far too short.
