Personal Quote: Live your dreams, or somebody else will for you.
Today I finally took my 1st Dan grading in shotokan karate. I have been training a lot and other things have had to take a back seat for a while, but I am pleased to say that I passed. I have a lot still to learn, but it's a great achievement. Perhaps now I'll get abck to my writing and drawing a bit more! Trouble is I've now started Aikido as well. Why do I do this to myself lol!
Anyway, huge hugs to you all.

About the fav spam lol, I'm sorry. I'm really not

Lol that's ok, I was just about to reply to your note when I saw I had 31 messages! Thanks for the many many faves! I'm doing good, working on loads and loads of stuff, but it's mainly writing so less to put up on here, but there are pieces, many pieces of artwork that need finishing and colouring, as is always the way. Working really hard to re-write Book 1 of TAOV, and 2 is pretty much done, but as I want to release them together it's still taking time and I'm a bit of a perfectionist / never happy with anything I produce heh. I want it to read the way I wanted it to the first time but lacked the experience. Anyway, how are you doing? Good I hope! We're going back into doing some re-enacting this year, back with the Russians, hopefully in a motorbike and sidecar (I get the machine gun hehe) Anyways, great to hear from you. Hugs, Zoe xxx

Im glad to hear youre doing so well :) I have been writing more and more and I really enjoy it. I'm just worried about actually finishing a novel lol. That, and publishing and all. Say, do you have any tips or pointers on writing and publishing?
ZoeStead Featured By Owner Jan 2, 2015  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd say just keep at it. Getting the Writer's and Artist's Yearbook is a big help if you want to get it published professionally, and it tells you how to go about doing that in there, although it can take a lot of hard work and rejection letters :( If you don't want to spend a tonne of cash and are happy doing a lot of the publicity and stuff yourself, try, I thoroughly recommend them, and they do have authors packages where you can pay an amount and get some publicity and help making the book look good, but they do have templates and stuff, which I found easy to download and use. Just keep doing what you enjoy doing, that's the best advice I can give :)

How come you haven't updated your comics?
ZoeStead Featured By Owner Aug 31, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I haven't had the time to draw comics in ages. I find it hard to fit in drawing as well as keeping a full time job and being a carer. I would honestly love to get back to it and I keep trying- and that's not to say there aren't piles upon piles of pencil work on my desk that could become a comic- it's just sadly a time thing. If I could quit my job tomorrow and still get paid, believe me, I'd be back to making comics in a flash ;) Thanks for asking though. Zoe x
