With all the shit that I struggled with last week I just wanted to share how it is right now. Right now I haven't dabbled into the next strip, nor have I done any character profiles, but I think I'll get to it over the weekend. Week days aren't really my friends 'cause I only get a couple hours to draw. Did some roughs a few days ago for a piece, I might try to finish that later this week. Hopefully I can get to it on Friday. In general I feel good. I have this warm feeling in my heart right now. Like I'm finally on the right track you know? Still watching Ctrl paint and learning from Figure Drawing For All It's Worth, so don't worry about me getting complacent. Exactly a year ago I made the decision to abandon my (pipe) dream of working for Marvel and to go indie. Now I'm finally on the road to being an indie storyteller. It's a really good feeling to know that you're doing something right. This has been a humbling year for me so far and with each new experience I'm reminded I know less than nothing, but I'm so close to being right now after a year of being wrong day in and day out. I feel so good and I haven't felt this good in ages. I'm honestly happy for once in my life. Usually I fake happiness till I make happiness, but it's nice when it's real. Though the acquaintances and friends I've made in the last few months their lives are falling apart. Break ups mostly and other such drama, but it reminds me that hard times will come back for me. That scares me because I'm tired of being sad. I want to be happy like this all the time. I guess that's one aspect of life though huh? Take the good with the bad and take the bad with the good. It feels like when I'm happy people are sad, but when people are happy I'm sad. Crazy kind of irony. It's so strange. The whole time I've been writing this my smile's never fade. It's the kind of content smile you give when things work out in your favor instead of working against you liked you expect them to. 

Because this is becoming a tradition with me here's some mood/credit music

So, I've been doing some deep soul searching. I've come to the conclusion that I just really don't want to tell this kind of story. The Three Muses that is. It's just not my thing, but I've put a lot of effort and thought into it and I've come up with a solution. A kind of solution. It's not going to be a story. See I've been struggling so much with trying to make this kind of thing work, but with the format that I was giving it and the way I was going about it I knew deep inside it just wasn't going to work. I couldn't make it work with all the constrictions I gave myself, so here and now I'm declaring The Three Muses refurbished. I may make it into a story sometime down the road, but as of right now it's not going to be that. Instead I'm going to make short strips with these characters and just have fun. I'm going to make mistakes with the characters I have planned, art and story wise, but ultimately I'm going to have learn and enjoy myself. If I have an idea that I want to do with these characters I'll do it and if I don't then I'll just chill out and let 'em cool off. I'll do more illustrations and these characters will be my inspiration and muses, heh puns. So the work I've put in isn't in vain. It's just gonna take on a new form. In layman's terms, Three Muses is going to be sporadically updated with no real plot, but a good amount of continuity. The next strip will be out whenever I feel like it and I'll take some time to show off each character in their respective environments. Don't fret too much on it right now. This is just me learning to fail and make things right. I like this situation a lot more and I think I'm going to enjoy doing this pet project more now knowing this is how it'll turn out. I want to thank all the people who've given me advice and suggestions for what to do, but ultimately I think this is the best situation for myself and my craft. And thank you to anyone who has been putting up with this whole debacle of mine.  I know I don't have (m)any fans or friends, but for those of you who have been reading these journals and actually taking into account on how I've been going at this I want to thank you personally. I'm ready for the fall. R. Lore out.

Welcome one, welcome all. Welcome skinny, welcome tall. Welcome stout, welcome small. You welcome one, you welcome all! Hello ladies and gentlemen I am R. Lore, storyteller supreme and connoisseur of fine tales. Deviant is my home and what's mine is yours, so come open up a book and read aloud 'cause this is your town, where everyone knows your name.

Little 'bout myself: I love telling stories and hope to one day post my personal epic the Reclaimers here on deviantART. More over my favorite stories to tell are fantasy epics. As you can see from my literary pieces I delve in that quite often.

Conclusion: This has been a friendly broadcast from your neighborhood Loremen. A pleasant night to one and all!

Stamp Ideas (free game if you want to make them): I am R. Lore, because it belongs to us all.

Romans 8:25=Story of my life

I'm not into all the hippity-hoppity groovey-movey jazzy-wazzy flashy-classy show that is Social Media. I'm more of deviant man, if I do say so myself.

Yes you're entitled to your opinion, no you don't have to shove it down my throat.

I put the story above everything else. Me, the audience we're all along for the ride, but wherever that ride takes us we'll arrive in style.

If all we get is all we give then I'd give it all to see my stories told.

I have a lot to say about Catharsis. I will say all I have to in my comics, my stories. My Stories.

A Storyteller's job is to Entertain, Explain, and Enlighten.

You have may have the right to freedom of speech, but you don't have the right to invoke hatred and anger with that freedom. Civility is the key to sanity.

Equality begins when we all agree that no one race or gender is better than the other.

I'm a humanist because I don't know if I should believe in feminist anymore.

In a perfect world Hannah Reid and Sydney Sierota have weekly pillow fights.... This is not a perfect world.

Storytelling is an ancient tradition that works gloriously with new thinking! But new thinking doesn't have to mean original. New thinking should mean innovating on what's already here.

Oh! That is very kind of you, but you needn't have to. I wouldn't know what to do with membership, aside from changing my name. If you really want to know I have 12 points, all given from you by the way because I never spend them.
