I wonder if it's not too late to start drawing again.
I used to draw.
I have the skecth books to prove it.
Than again, maybe I shouldn't show it anymore.
But if I can draw again, it would certainly solve alot of problems, but I'm just afraid it would double the angst of not being able to write and draw the stories I want.
But at least things wouldn't be out of my hands.
Well, it's not that bad, I guess.
Things are not all that bad.
Not at all.

And you reach the crossroads and now have to decide whether to go left, right, or forward. Or you could also just go back where you came from, but you do know that things will never ever be the same. Then you also have the option to not follow the road and just wander into the dirt path... or to that place where there are no paths. There is also that other choice of just staying at the crossroads, to remain in statis... or is it in flux? To never decide-- that would you be your decision.

I shouldn't be blogging.
Who knows what I may write and regret later.
Just finished watched SATC at Telly's place with the usual suspects.
And as usual, finished two bottles of wine. Not all by myself, mind you.
But I'm buzzed.
And shouldn't be blogging.
After I finished lunch around 3pm, I checked email when I shouldn't have.
Then again, I guess I couldn't have avoided it.
I would have eventually found out.
Three years in this agaency and what do I have to show?
A lot, I guess.
Three years in this agency, and what comic book do I have to show.
Not a single one.
But I shouldn't really use this agency as an excuse for an being able to write and publish my comic books.
It is... nothing more... but an excuse.
Forgive me, that's the red wine talking.
Must stop that.
And just get to work.
But I'm buzzed.
But it's almost midnight.
But I must get back to work.
