    Mystery Skulls - Freaking Out

    I loved Mystery Ben's previous music video animation, Ghost.

    And now he's made the much anticipated sequel, Freaking Out. Great music and beautiful animation :heart: Go check out both of these videos, give them a like and a fave.

    Still Alive

    Hey Guys, sorry for the lack of updates, the most you've probably seen of me, is in the comment sections of other stories. I have been genuinely busy the last few weeks, but also coupled with a lack of motivation to work on my stories. Not just the stories, I actually couldn't bring myself to do any art, which is another thing I really enjoy. Hell I'm finding it hard to sit down and play a game

    Edits/Revisions Progress

    So I'm getting into the editing and revisions again. The Gdocs versions of the fic are where the changes happen first. I'll be updating the FiMFic versions soon hopefully. Currently me and my editor are happy with the revisions we've made on the Prologue, Chapter 1, 7 and 8. We're working on Chapter 2 today and are halfway finished, we'll get the updated chapters to you guys this month and then

    April Fools again

    Just want to reassure you all, I won't be playing any tricks. I'm not particularly fond of this day to be honest. I usually see too many fake and prank videos and chapters for stories or channels I watch on youtube. I've been kinda busy for awhile, redecorating around the house. Almost finished with my bedroom, so soon enough, I can focus on getting chapter 9 out. Also if anyone is curious,

    Update on Life

    Hey guys, just want to give you all a little update, so you know I'm not dead. I spent 11 of the last fourteen days preparing for an assessment. I went to the assessment, I did really well...But I still didn't get the job. I really, really wanted this particular job. It would've been ideal for me, since it was close to home and I'd done similar types of work before. It's hard failing, especially

Hey Guys, sorry for the lack of updates, the most you've probably seen of me, is in the comment sections of other stories. I have been genuinely busy the last few weeks, but also coupled with a lack of motivation to work on my stories. Not just the stories, I actually couldn't bring myself to do any art, which is another thing I really enjoy. Hell I'm finding it hard to sit down and play a game for long stretches of time. I'm not sure what to attribute this to, I suppose it's partly the pressure I'm receiving to find a job. I have been looking and have been unemployed for close to two years now. I know there are people who've been unemployed longer, but I'm a fairly young guy and it doesn't look good on my CV, being unemployed so long.

Meeting a guy tomorrow who can either get me a job placement or an actual job. Wish me luck. If I'm successful, my quality of living will improve and I'll hopefully be more inclined to write.

Good luck! I know the unemployed feel too.

Good luck, man! :pinkiesmile:

Good luck, Tonto. I really know how you feel. I was unemployed for about the same amount of time, maybe a year longer, before I finally found my job. Jobs are so hard to come by in my area, that I wouldn't even have this one if I didn't already know someone who'd been working there at the time.

I was in a serious funk a while back similar to yours, as well. I recall mentioning it to you one of the times you hopped on Skype. I didn't want to write, I didn't want to read, I didn't want to play games. All I wanted to do was either sleep or mindlessly browse the internet. Hang in there, Tonto. It should get better in time.

We really miss you around the Skype chat, Tonto. I think it's really important that you understand that you're not just some dude on the internet to us. Thousands of miles may separate us, but dammit, I value your friendship every bit as much as the friends I made in grade school. You're a treasured friend to myself and many. Without your ideas, comments and support, I probably never would have finished Outlaw.

Take heart, man. It'll all work itself out eventually, so long as you don't throw in the towel and give up before it does.

Thanks guys

Thanks Tofu, I appreciate the kind and supportive words *hugs* You actually described my position pretty accurately, I do end up spending hours browsing, watching videos etc. Though recently I have begun breaking my funk and I've been able to play a few games, for a few hours, like Disgaea D2 and Team Fortress 2. But that's very recently. I feel bad about not writing, but at the end of the day, it's a hobby/project for me, albeit a project I want to complete.

I'll log onto Skype tonight and try to log on more often.

2250879 You're welcome. :twilightsmile:
I hope it went well.

Kindly,
