Of Characters and Concept Designs: The Artistic World of Aeterna

The sun is bright, the wind is cold, and the strange Sarah creature has entered into Week #2 of NaNoWriMo. Surprisingly, all of her primary psychological functions are still mostly intact.

Moving, Michigan, and a New Page in the Lifebook

You may have noticed my abnormal silence last Thursday. (If you didn't, shame on you.) I would love to sponge my inconsistency away with a laugh and a snarky quip, but sadly, both my situation and my surroundings render me speechless for anything but garbled slurring and incoherent ramblings about Great Lakes and cardboard boxes. …
