First off, before I forget, happy new year! I hope you all have a fantastic 2016. 

I've been having computer issues for almost five years now. Almost since the day I left college. I went from having a powerhouse macbook with photoshop and all the bells and whistles to nothing but an iphone. Which is what I've been with since I've come to Japan. I don't have any usable personal computer. Sure, I tried getting one. A few times. I saved up and purchased a laptop before I went overseas. A crappy laptop with no wi-fi capabilities (beware bargain sales as sometimes they lie to get rid of faulty computers, thanks Sony). 

My parents were kind enough to buy me a new computer before I went overseas after the first one was such a lemon. But unfortunately, that one died about a month after I arrived. Or I should correct myself. It didn't die so much as slow to a ridiculous crawl that makes it absolutely unbearable and unusable. I swear my five year old macbook that was on its last legs was leagues better RAM wise. I don't know what it was but these were both terrible laptops. Right when I desperately needed them. 

So I've been computer-less for the last year or so. I used my iphone and my PS4 to connect to the internet. And my school work computer when I wanted to update deviantART or other like websites. It's been miserably hard on my writer's spirit. There have been times where I wanted to write. Desperately, the feeling would claw at me. And I'd have to resort to scribbling ideas down on a notebook and just dealing. 

Hopefully that won't be the case too much longer. I have ordered a ipad and keyboard which should arrive this weekend. It's sort of a late Christmas present to myself I guess. I kinda cringe over the price tag but I know that apple has a lot more longevity than other brands I've tried since. I tried to get away from Apple... but it's clear that Apple is still the superior product for me. I don't think I'll go back to PCs until I have a place where I can get one built. PC laptops have been such an expensive mistake, time and time again. 

Anyway, this is kinda got away from me into a rambling rant. What I meant to say is that I should soon have a personal laptop again soon. This does not mean I will have photoshop, as clearly, I won't. But it does mean that I'll be able to write more. And for those who have been so patient. Here's a clip from Ashes:

Satoshi took to studying the various jars of spices and salts on a shelf a few paces down. He knew some of these would be useful but the words on the labels kept swimming before his eyes. He just couldn’t concentrate. The prophecy that wicked seer had given had seemed to slip innocuously beneath his skin. He could feel it even now; the words pounding out their beat into his bones.
And in the end, when all comes to light...
Satoshi jumped at the sudden sharp cracking of glass. Bulbasaur, who had been rooting around underfoot, leapt back with a snarl. Unconsciously, Satoshi had managed to knock several spice jars off the shelf. He bit back a string of curses, looking furtively towards the pantry doors. It was late, but not late enough that someone wouldn’t have heard that.
Only dead air answered. Satoshi allowed a few beats to pass before he let out the breath he had been holding.

こにちは。 私 の 名前 は シャノン です. 二十九さいです. よろしくお願いします。

My name is Shannon aka. "Turtle" or "Ooshii Kurai" online.

I'm actually not an artist per say (although I had planned to be one at one time). I'm a college graduate- English Major, Creative Writing concentration. I plan to hopefully publish something in the future- preferably in the Young Adult (YA) section.

I'm currently working as an English Teacher overseas in Japan. It's made me fairly busy so I haven't been able to update any of my work lately.

I love comedy and making people laugh. So I use my art skills, or lack there of, to make comics.

I usually update on Mondays or Fridays when I can.

I currently can't afford a paid account. I really can't justify buying one when there are other expenses I need to pay. But if you are willing to help me towards my goal of getting one again, I'd certainly be grateful.

So far, the only thing I can think of to repay donors would be to feature them in my journal. I may open commissions in the future but I don't have the time to do that currently.

You must be logged in to donate.
