So here's what's going on folks: Just as I start back up and am really making a concerted effort to be consistent — even going so far as to do a running storyline — my computer goes kablooie. I'm not sure 100% what the problem is, but it shuts off at random times. I'm fairly certain it's the power supply, because it doesn't stay up as long when the scanner is plugged in and in use. Doing anything — including posting this — is a race against time where I'm usually the loser.
In the meantime, I'm still drawing, and as soon as I have the time and cash to replace the power supply, I'll get these things up.
