The Constant Pursuit of Failure

 I have a sneaking suspicion that I have probably used this title before, considering the concept of failure is such a major factor in my life, but I can't be arsed to go though my archives to find out.

This entry is just going to be a random string of shit, as I don't have any particular subject I feel like focusing on. That and I'm horribly lazy.

1-Wayward 2 has officially been submitted to the printer, so it's their move now. For the time being, I've only requested the initial proof for editing purposes, and once that's all been finalized; enough copies to send out to those I've promised one. Obviously, I'll update on that as it develops.

2-Watched the first presidential debate last night. I debated writing about it, but honestly anything I have to say has already been written in just about every news site out there (see also: I'm horribly lazy). So if you really want my impression on the debate, you can recreate the same effect by reading any of the many articles on Yahoo!, MSNBC, and the like and self-inserting a generous amount of the words "fuck", "fucking", "fucked", and any other of the many variations the word "fuck" has to offer.

C-Since I wrote the first chapter of SPACEDOOM: A Johnny Explosion Adventure, the floodgates of my horrible, horrible mind have opened, generating what would have to be some of the most terrible/awesome ideas I have ever thought up. Look forward to more on those horrible ideas, along with the next awesome-packed chapter of SPACEDOOM: A Johnny Explosion Adventure very soon.

4-A friend of mine (who will remain anonymous until I have permission to post specifics) has asked me to draw/design some tattoos for them. I'm giddy excited as this will be the first time my artwork will be used as a tattoo on someone else; unlike my previous tattoo requests which were just variations on other peoples art.
Right now, that project is still in the "Hey, will you draw me some tattoos?" "Okay." stage, so even I have no idea what exactly this will entail. But I'm looking forward to it.

5-Wayward 3 is coming along nicely, but don't expect it anytime soon.

6-If all goes as planned, David "Ain't Nuttin' Ta Fuck With" Lugo will be up in a few days and he, Nicole, and I will be meeting Neil Gaiman at a book signing. If you don't know who Neil Gaiman is, you are no longer allowed to read this journal. Go away. Now.
Apologies in advance to David because by the time he gets up here, I will be engrossed in Silent Hill: Homecoming, which comes out the day before he gets up here. David, as always, you're free to come up and hang out and crash on our couch and all; but for this particular visit, don't be surprised if I never actually acknowledge your existence or say anything to you other than, "Can't talk. Playing Silent Hill."
