Yes, I honestly feel like doing that right now. Why, you may ask? Because I've finally started writing again!
Yes, it's true. I've tried writing Chapter 2 of my new Raccoons story Another Family Secret numerous times, and yet I've find myself dissatisfied with what I've written a few paragraphs in and started over from scratch. In addition to that, procrastination, health and personal issues (you know what I'm talking about if you've been following me on here a while) have helped contribute to my lack of writing lately. Honestly, I haven't completed anything since...well...December! But rest assured people, I am not done writing Raccoons tales! I don't know why, but for whatever reason earlier tonight I felt oddly compelled to begin writing Chapter 2 again, and I actually managed to make a good bit of progress with it! I managed to write about 2,000 words, and this time I actually feel pretty satisfied with what I've got so far. That means the next few evenings should be pretty busy! I figure if I work on it every other day for the next several days, I can finally have this chapter finished sometime next week! Yes folks, I can assure this means you will have something new to read from me soon! (I still have to watch more Raccoons episodes that I haven't seen in a while to keep fresh with all the characters, but I think I have Ralph and Melissa pretty well figured out-obviously-and since this chapter heavily focuses on Melissa-well, it is her story-I can finish this first.) Keep your eyes out for the new chapter of my story! (I may have to link to the first chapter since it's been long enough that most of you might not even remember it...) Be on the lookout as Melissa gets a call from a stranger who claims he is a long lost relative of hers...
Secondly...concerning the floods that have wreaked havoc on my home state, things are looking a bit less grim. Where I live, the worst of the rains missed us, but we still wound up with flooded yards and had a 12+ hour power outage Sunday night all the way into Monday morning. Things aren't looking so good elsewhere throughout my state, however...numerous counties have been declared disaster areas, numerous roadways are closed, and several dams have been breached. Altogether about 20 people have perished throughout my state...It's a pretty rough situation right now, but at least my family didn't get the worst of it; some people have lost all of their prized possessions. Well, it's been sunny the past few days...time to dry out and pick up the pieces!
And finally...Those of you who have taken a look at my profile most recently may have noticed I have done something shocking and completely unexpected. I changed the profile photo on my deviantArt. Yeah, bet you never thought you'd see me do that, right? For the longest time it was a screencap I took from a Tracey Ullman Simpsons short of a botched Simpson family photo because I thought it was hilarious. Well, I've finally decided to replace it with something else I find hilarious...Wacky Packages! Yes, some of you might remember a post I made a month ago in which I showed off some of my old Flashback Wackys I found in my cabinet (with my abysmal webcam)...Well, needless to say, stumbling on them has rekindled my interest in these classic satirical product parody stickers, because I went and downloaded a whole bunch of images of classic '70s stickers. Right now, I am using "Cap'n Crud", a Cap'n Crunch parody from 1973. He's drowning in all that cruddy cereal! Honestly, if I ever become a "Core Member" (RIP Premium Membership), which is not something I'm holding my breath on, I might actually change my named to "GoodCap'nCrud" because it amuses me. I have a very silly sense of humor don't I?
