I’m still working on the Soho chapter, though I’m at the tail end of it now, the part where I arrive in Saudi Arabia for Christmas. I’d forgotten just how draconian the Saudi customs can be. While one customs dude was pawing my computer magazines looking for naked women, another handling the other line went nuts because some guy had wrapped Christmas presents in his luggage. “Whiskey!” the guy shouted, ripping open one of the packages. Turned out to be a box of liqueur chocolates. “Whiskey! Whiskey!”. My guy found an “offensive” picture in my computer magazine, took out his big black magic marker and went to town.

Gearing up for something completely different. Yesterday I put pencil to paper and scratched out my first conceptual drawing.

More on Computers

I figured out what I needed in the current chapter. As it was, there were two different, unrelated ideas happening. I needed to link the beginning to the end, and I’ve now managed to do just that. Whether what I came up with is any good or not I won’t know until I do the read through, but it has the right ingredients.

Moving from Soho to computers and giving the transition some thought. Came upon this ad that made me chuckle.

I revamped a visit to Soho and improved it quite a bit, but there’s still work needed. Still too much tell so I’ll be working on that today.  Also need to add that Soho is not just about sex, and not everyone in Soho is looking for sex. Could be Soho is simply over rated? Na, but could be. 😉

Dog is home

While I managed to get a lot done yesterday, today was a different story. Took the dog to the vet bright and early this morning to have a tumor removed. We’ll know in the near future whether it was benign or not (we’re obviously hoping for the best). We also went ahead and had a wart-like grown removed from her eye-lid so regardless of what the test results come back with, she’ll at least be more comfortable. Right now Fubar is very chilled out (as expected), lying beside where I’m sitting.

With me current project getting ready to head into marketing mode, I’m finding time to think about other projects, and I’ve had a revelation about one of them. After finishing James Owen’s Here, There Be Dragons, and keeping in mind the ever illuminating shadow of George Lucas and Star Wars, I think I have found a path to move forward in a quick and inspired way.

I’m less clear on my other major project. I’ve some chapters written and much of the rough outlines done, but I’m only feeling a mild spark of creativity rather than the pot of coffee or three inspiration mode I can get into. The biggest issue I’m having is the time line. Not to give too much away, I’m trying to decide what to put where.

Looking forward to it all.
