It has been a while since I posted. I haven't painted in about 3 months. This is pretty normal for me. I will hit a dry spell for 3-6 months and during this time I will pursue other hobbies.
Currently, World of Warcraft has hooked me again. I am enjoying leveling my little gnome and getting a few achievements that will probably change with the upcoming Cataclysm expansion.
I have also done a lot of reading. I found Monster Hunter International by Larry Correia. You can check out the first 7 chapters here. It's a fun book set in modern times with a definite Lovecraft feel. Monsters such as vampires and zombies are real and the federal government pays for their heads, as long as the general population is kept in the dark. I definitely recommend it.
Of course the biggest distraction this time of year is that I work retail. As you begin buying for the holidays, remember to be nice to the poor people who have to help you. They may just be trying to make money for their miniature addiction!
I imagine that as the new Force book for Circle of Orboros comes out, I will start painting again. Until then, WoW will continue to pull a lot of my hobby time =)
