I guess it’s time to share this week’s Sketches of the Day with you all. I’ve done both some challenging ones and some easy ones, so it’s been a well-rounded week. 😉

The face at the bottom row was my attempt at drawing the way I envision the face of the main character in my novel. Yeah. Yep. Yes. The dog ghost is from Luigi’s Mansion: Dark Moon. He’s called Polterpup. (Yes, I’ve done a lot of video game drawings lately. I love Nintendo, what can I say?)

I’m still really enjoying sketching every day. It hasn’t become a chore yet, so that’s good. I’ve actually been thankful for it because my writing has been at a standstill this week, so it’s nice to still have a creative outlet. I don’t feel quite so guilty about not writing as much as I’d like.

Anyway, I hope you like them!

Hello, I’m Roxie and I’m addicted to Animal Crossing.

If you know me, this isn’t much of a secret, and you’ve probably already guessed that I am freaking out about the upcoming release of Animal Crossing: New Leaf for the Nintendo 3DS. I have literally waited years for this game to come out, and I haven’t been so excited for anything in a really, really long time. I’ve been watching gameplay videos and tracking tags on Tumblr pretty much constantly since I found out the release date.

A few months ago, Nintendo released an Animal Crossing edition 3DS XL system in Japan. I was so jealous. I hoped and prayed and hoped and prayed that it would be released in America too, so when Nintendo announced that it would be I nearly had a stroke. It goes without saying that I splurged and pre-ordered myself one. Sometimes you have to spoil yourself, right? I’m so lucky that I have a lover who understands and supports my Animal Crossing addiction. 🙂

It kinda looks like a Poptart, but I freaking love it. I cannot wait for June 9th so I can have it in my grubby little hands.

Anyway, the real point of this post was to inform you all that I made an Animal Crossing: New Leaf blog to vent my extreme excitement and to share my adventures. I figured that there might be others reading this blog that are looking forward to AC:NL too, so if you’d like to follow my blog it’s called D’Hara Crossing. D’Hara is the name of a land in my favorite fantasy novel series, The Sword of Truth. 🙂

HURRY UP, JUNE 9TH!

Just some thoughts.

I’m feeling a bit better since my last post. I’ve forced myself to write, draw, and do things around the house. I took a nice, long bath and pampered myself a little. That helped a bit too. Hopefully I’m over the peak of all this nonsense.

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about why my writing has been suffering. Of course being depressed plays a big part in it, but I think that I’m also just bored. I’ve been working on the same series for months now, and frankly, I’m just sick of it. Ideally, I would like to finish it completely before I move onto something else, but what’s the point of focusing solely on a single project if boredom is just gonna bring my progress to a grinding halt?

Also, I think I’m ready to start working on the novel again. It’s been sitting for five months for the exact same reason – I just needed a break from it. I guess it makes sense. I mean, when you’ve been completely absorbed in something for months (or years, as with the novel) it only stands to reason that you’ll grow tired of it at some point. Writing a book isn’t something that you do for a few hours a day and then put it away; it’s something that you think about all hours of the day, sometimes even when you sleep.

It’s okay to need a break as long as you get back to work eventually, so that’s my plan as it stands right now.

Oh, and does blogging count as writing for the day? Because this is about all I can manage tonight.
