Greetings, Friends! Well, it’s been a hell of a weekend I was not anticipating, starting with my significant other accidentally putting her foot through our shower wall. .
Indeed, as I was settling in to write on Friday night I heard a crash in the bathroom followed by a gasp of shock. I ran to the bathroom just in time to see my significant other pulling her foot from the tiles, covered in blood. Turns out she was shaving using the soap dish attached to the shower wall, not realizing it wasn’t load bearing and went right through. Good news is that she didn’t need to go to the E.R. Bad news is we needed to jerry rig a cover for the hole in the wall so we could shower. .
Our crisis settled (inasmuch as a garbage bag plugging the wall is a crisis settled) I returned to my attempt at writing. But no sooner had I sat down again that my phone started blowing up with calls from a friend back in Hawaii. He supplies a bunch of stores with various Japanese goods, from candies to pet treats. He’d landed a deal to sell a product with a big account, and in his excitement he also promised to produce an advertising banner for the shelf. .
Just one problem — he has no experience in Photoshop making banners. So with a 48 hour turn around, I drop all my writing and start fabricating a 2 x 4 ft banner to pitch to the store he’s selling at. I’d never made anything that large before, and I still have no clue how it’ll look printed out. But after five drafts back and forth with tweaks he wanted, he was finally pleased with it and I sent him the final version. .
With basically a few hours left before I need to hit the hay, I felt an urge to create something that I felt summarize the weekend. I call it, Drowned. Lol. .
Hopefully this week is more productive writing wise. Take care, guys, and I’ll check in with you all when I’m able to! .
