My first award for this blog of mine! Yay! Many thanks to Yahari Bento for nominating me for this!
So… what’s the point?
The main purpose of this blog of mine is to complement my deviantART page (http://roamingeopeton.deviantart.com/) and to see if there’s any interest in the books I’m composing via the tid-bits I post here and @ dA. Every now and then, I also post about other things — like Anime.
For what it’s worth…:
1 ~ Don’t read around blogs and sites about how to make good blog posts. What works for one person may not work for you, so just do you! Unless you personally agree with the advice, I’ve found it’s better to go your own way.
2 ~ (related to 1, above) Be yourself! It’s always better, in the end, in life, to be yourself than to hide behind a mask; feel free to make several separate blogs (you can do that for free with WordPress), according to what you want to do with each one, but still authenticity is a trait people seem to want to seek out nowadays.

University is in full swing, and with this new work-load you’ve certainly noticed my sheer lack of activity here.
That’ll continue for, I think, at least another month.
In other news, Pathallea‘s about ready to see a professional editor. Someone who edits sci-fi/fantasy novels is best.
Anyone of such profession out there in the World? If so, then I’d like to hear from you!
He’s also in the process of composing a sci-fi novel!
