Injured! [Again]

So, uh, I tore my left rotator cuff a few days ago, and now my arm is in a sling. Pro: It was my left, so I can still draw. Con: Can’t type. [Doing this single-handed right now, so it’s short.] So if you don’t hear from me for a few weeks, don’t be horribly […]

I seriously re-wrote the same scene eight times, and […]
