Life of Syn - Order Forms Next Week, New Story, and Bah Humbug · 2:44am Dec 20th, 2017

Happy Holidays, Y'all!

Are you as desperate for a break as Braeburn is for some lovin'?

Three things this week:

I'm going to officially open up order forms for the "Sensation" physical copy next week. It will be a Google form with the finalized price and a sneak peek of the new cover art. As an aside: thank you all for your patience with this process. It's a ton more work than I was expecting, and I'm only able to do it thanks to Forrest, Britt, Duck, Zyrian, Rock, and Wireframe helping me spot-check. I'm sorry for the wait, but I want to make it the best I can for all of you. :heart:

Second, you might have noticed I posted a new story, "Heir to Darkness." Check it out if you haven't already. It's my first crack at taking a commission (which I took back at NMND), so I'll be interested to hear what you think. Brimstone was a fantastic person to work with, so I might take on another commission sometime down the road. Not for a while, though, I think.

Last, a quick aside to anyone else who (like me) gets super stressed out during the holidays: keep going. It's been a freaking crazy year in so many, many ways, but we've made it together so far. Don't be afraid to reach out, and if you can't think of anything to say, I recommend doing something random and kind for someone you've always wanted to talk to. I've made a lot of friends that way. The year will be over soon, and even if it's just a walk in the snow, I hope you find things to enjoy and take time to breathe. Speaking of which, I've found this song to be a particularly helpful reminder.

If all else fails, bird seed is cheap, and I still see ducks resting in non-frozen lakes from time to time. Might be worth feeding some of them. :heart:

Be kind to one another, everyone. I love you all.

Oh geez. Well if you ever happen to take a commission again in the future. I have a few ideas I'd be interested in throwing at you.

Glad I can finally order a physical copy of Sensation. :0

I don't usually listen to newschool Green Day, but that was good... Thanks Vivid. As someone whose just about been through hell and back the past several years, really... Thanks. Damn right you've gotta take time to breathe, even if you're trying to make up for lost time... Even when you're trying to make up a big ol deficit, fill those holes in your life and in your soul because every fucking time you try to get your life going you lose something or someone else... Hell yeah I'm still breathing.

I'll have to download that one, even if it is from the "We don't know what to do next, and old-school punk isn't selling records anymore" era of Green Day. Heheheh thanks man. Keep up the great work, I'm loving getting back into reading again. ~

Glad you like the song! I still listen to it a bunch myself.
