What will you be doing?

Definitely not the last two options. It'd be an awfully long hiatus if I managed either of them during the wait.

Moi? I'm trying to write fiction again. It's been an uphill struggle so far. It just feels like a lot of the passion and inspiration I had for writing disappeared about six months ago, and now everything I write feels like it's empty, one-dimensional hack work. This may be a side effect of TVTropes.

...aren't usually what end up happening for me. I intend to have meaningful sex. The likelihood of that actually coming to fruition is, unfortunately, exceedingly small, as my fiancée happens to share a certain medication with you, and it does not do to her what it does to you.

That makes me a sad panda. Smile

Although with the weather currently raining every day of the week, I hope I still have clean clothes to wear next week.

The other options just weren't sensible enough Wink Not to be offensive or anything, but there are a lot of webcomics out there that will tide me over during hiatus...

There's lots to do out there that's Not Me. This is entirely facetious. Wink

But none as much fun?
Hmmm... No that isn't right somehow.
But none as fulfilling?
I'm rather sure my wife would have an issue with that so no.

OK I am at a loss. [big grin]

This is what I will be working on:

It is part of a huge project that I have been plodding away on for over a year now. The current project is to get the elevator up and running.

For scale, the floor to ceiling is about 7" or so.

falls during the hiatus. I'm presenting two papers (wish me luck!) and I'm not ready. So it's a good time for a hiatus.

I hates laundry. Truly I do.
Bugking-is that a batcave?

Check out www.terrainthralls.com
It's not the Batcave. It's only a mine. It's part of a much larger piece but it is the only section of the project that is done.

Here is another project that is actually done.

This was a contest piece that is themed around the Iron Kingdoms Cryxian Empire. Basically a kingdom of undead magic users ruled by a huge undead dragon.

I play table top war games. So basically I play with little dollies (To quote one of my co-workers :D)
It's like chess but with dice and no grid.

are fun. My brother plays warhammer 40k and my husband and I used to play mechwarriors. The group we played with kinda dissolved, though.

I was right! Wow-- that is AMAZING!

Reading Tales of MU and working on some fanart for it, as well as original work of my own. Keep track of the webcomics I read, goof around dA... whatever suits my fancy.

I really wanna try it, but I don't pay attention to character descriptions when I read. I was wanting to do something for your hiatus, but it'll have to wait for your next one, I suppose, because as stated earlier, I'm doing MU stuff for a friend. I also have a contest I want to enter for a webcomic. I wouldn't know what to draw, actually. Got any suggestions?

should be on the character's page in the wiki. If not, bug me in the forum. As for what to draw--heck, lotsa stuff comes to mind. If you want to draw an action sequence, you could draw Emmae killing Hildin, or the enchantment leaving her, or Fen decking Temmin. You could draw Temmin and Jebby. You could draw Allis praying. You could draw Temmin dancing the tripla with his sisters. I dunno! You could draw lotsa things! Smile

But you're committed, and I understand that, totally! I just haven't got fan art yet and I'm feeling sorry for myself, poor little serial writer that I am. Wink

I did commission a sketch of Temmin that's coming along.

Arath's picture

I really want to draw Temmin with twins, or just the twins. They're my favorite characters, other than the Teacher... and I suppose Temmin XD Thanks for the suggestions, by the way I-m so happy

Well, the Mythbusters special, anyway. We stayed up till midnight, all four of us, on Sunday watching that! We love Mythbusters!

The wife and I like Ninja Warrior, Myth Busters, Wipeout (So good! Not as goo as Ninja Warrior or MXC but still good for an American game show) How It's Made (My favorite) and Extreme Make Over Home Edition. She also likes America's Funniest Home Videos. I'll admit that the show can be amusing but I'd rather have a product for my time. TV is basically a time drain. You do come away with information once in a while but beyond that there is no record of what you did for that allotment of time. I would much rather build or paint something.

You guys totally sound like us. We LOVE Wipeout, and Sir actually likes it better than its inspiration, MXC. We love How It's Made (fascinating, seriously) and Extreme Makeover, too. And we watch AFV because it's something you can watch with your kids--and it is funny. Our other guilty reality pleasures are Dancing with the Stars and America's Got Talent.

And we agree that TV is a time drain, but sometimes it's a pleasant one.

Our rugrat is only 7 months old so the viewing selections aren't really influenced by his presence yet. Soon, rabbit, sooon!

but it is such an enthralling time sink when they run a whole string of them

We watched them make toe shoes, wood stoves and leg braces tonight. Absolutely absorbing! WHY is it so absorbing? I DON'T KNOW! But it is.
