JUST CHECKING BACK IN

This is me reporting back. 😛 I’ve still been on semi-hiatus these past few months. Though I’m still writing (and reading), I’m actively searching for a job. It’s pretty difficult, especially in my city. Where I live in is small and has an abundance of CDL driving and import/export related jobs, which I can’t do or don’t appeal to me. I’ve made some money in a few occassional gigs, though it’s nowhere near enough. Computer work is my favorite career, alongside writing. Unfortunately, they both have the same huge drawback: I can’t afford advertising. It’s not “I won’t,” I literally can’t. I’m hoping to have more luck soon.

Changing the subject. As you can see, I’ve also given a new look to  my website. It was looking pretty…unappealing. And it was time for a new coat of paint, too. Blue is my favorite color, so that’s why I selected this particular theme. This look is perhaps the one I’ve liked the most yet. I want to add a new header later on. The current one looks quite good, for a default header.

I’m still working on Project Obsidian, my upcoming sci-fi novel. Given my current hardships, I haven’t even finished a first draft. Not quite, I’ve done some revisions that sort of bring it up to the level of a second or third draft. That’s just how I write. My first drafts aren’t a piece of junk. I just like my stuff (writing, my phone or computer UI) to look good. Anyway, I don’t know when I’ll be able to set a release date for my new novel. I’m really shooting for it to be this year, preferably in the fall. I read somewhere that that’s a suitable time for releasing sci-fi and fantasy books.

Until the next time. Oh, and I’ll see if I can post more book reviews. I haven’t had much time for that lately. Au revoir!
