A couple of unrelated things, made related via the device of a LJ post title:
Endings: I just finished the last cigarette in the pack. I am now quitting smoking again. I started again (in a non-social-smoking way) during the past month as a bullshit way to cope with stress….but that’s it. I’m done. If I try to bum a smoke from you, or if you see me light up, kick my ass. I’m done with this, and need to stick to it.
Beginnings: I’m starting back up on another creative outlet that I haven’t done in a while. I just ordered the following books from Amazon to help me out:
That second one is by the artist who did Crossgen’s Way of the Rat.
I’ll be drawing again, which is something that I haven’t done for years. Hell, if nothing else, it will save me money on hiring artists for Adamant projects.

Congrats on quitting smoking!
Yay! For both!
I loved Johnson’s work on Way of the Rat…that title was the biggest reason that CrossGen’s demise hurt me. :)
Congrats and good luck on both counts!
wait until you face my “smiling jackass”.
Your butt quitting kung fu is best.
Had no idea Johnson did an art instruction book. Cool!
a virtual bouquet…
for your quitting (& beginning) day-
That is awesome!
I know what a struggle that is.
Julian is a long time smoker and quit at New Years, it continues to be a struggle.
I gave up soda at New Years to encourage him, I was out of my gord…I mean um yah that is going well :)
Much empathy and support to you!
Good luck with getting the smokes back out of your life. Will do all possible to support that.
Good with getting another form of expression back into your world.
Ooooh neato. Tell me how good the books are.
And congrats on the quitting smoking again. Kung Fu is much better stress relief. ;-)
So when do we get to see some of your artwork?
Congrats and Good luck!
Adding congrats and good wishes to the pile.
Good man! Didn’t come begging tonight, I was proud!
