Hi everyone,

Sorry for dropping off the face of the internet for a while, but it's been a very hectic summer for me, filled with good and not quite so good things. 

The not quite so good things: I broke my finger by forgetting how to shut my car door without my hand still inside, and work has been really really busy and draining for me. The finger is healing nicely, work is still pretty damn busy, but I'm doing ok. 

The good news is I've made new friends over the summer, and all in all been surviving the journey. 

I know I talked a big talk about working quickly on my story, but yeah, it's been harder than not to move forward. Not because I don't know where to go, but just that my prime writing time is late at night, and I've been too exhausted to really ever settle into a late night of writing. Fear not, though. I haven't forgotten it, and Chapter 15 should be on the way soon. Elson Wong, aka Darkspeeds here on dA has very very graciously volunteered to make a graphic novel rendition of Chapter 9 of TWA (he also did the "cover art" for the same chapter). Nothing posted yet at the time of this writing, but you should all check out his work because he's an immensely talented artist, and just a great chap all around. 

You can check out his stuff here: :icondarkspeeds:

On the DreamKeepers group front, you should expect an announcement soon on a new Caption Contest! It will be a fun and accessible contest to tide everyone over until the traditional Halloween fan-art contest. Stay tuned!

I apologize to everyone who I've sort of left hanging with my radio silence. I'm not dead, just busy. I will try to do better about staying on top of all my messages moving forward.

Hey know you've been busy and understandably so ,but you'll make some time for the Halloween contest,right?

Absolutely. There will be a Halloween contest. That's a guarantee. There should be announcement soon once David gives me all the prize and category details.

Excellent!I also cannot wait for that aforementioned Caption contest;maybe it got pushed back to Christmas like the one before?Regardless I've got a nice little something for the contest and I daresay it's one of my better doodles.

Okay I just went to your website thats linked to your Deviant ID and I found a few interesting things... One: the plane is called a Lynx... you can guess why I noticed it. I just thought that was funny. Two: the Lynx is in your Deviant ID picture. I think that is really cool. Three: I see that the company that owns the website are hiring... is it entry level or experienced level hiring? Im looking for a new job, so I have been poking around.

By the way, I have a few sketches for chapter 8 of Wayward Astronomer. I have not posted them yet, Because I do not know where to go from this point on...

Sorry, I was slow to respond to your note. Feel free to post the sketches to your stash on dA (or some other site) and then you can link me to the sketches in a note. I'll take a look and give you my thoughts!

We are hiring at XCOR for several different positions, so read the job descriptions to get an idea for what each one requires. Most of them are technical jobs (engineering, machining, or technician)
