Prompt – Survival

Another prompt title from The Daily Post

Lately, I have been doing a bit more engaging with the Resident Evil fandom over on DeviantArt. This is mostly due to a couple of friends on the website opening up a Resident Evil Original Characters Jam – A collection of people drawing, writing and generally being creative with and for others in the Jam.

It started a bit before I gave birth and as such I wasn’t really in the mood to contribute; mostly due to feeling like a beached whale. Since settling into Motherhood and knowing what sort of time I do have available to me after various daily tasks I am happy to say I still have time to get some drawing done. As such, I can give back to my fellow zombie outbreak survivors in the form of a few headshots of characters involved with the Jam.

(Burke, ORLY, Blanky, Kiz, Kilgore and Shakahnna – For various people over on dA)

Its just been damned nice to be able to find my stride with drawing for others and (selfishly) myself again. I was worried about not having the time or the inclination to do any drawing once my child was here, and I am over the moon that I am able to get a few artsy things done. Especially for those friends that I rather neglected in the weeks before and after giving birth.
Actually, I am rather honoured to have some of these people as friends, as they’ve always been the understanding sort. Whenever I have needed a break from the internet they’ve been encouraging and supportive of that fact – which is great to know. It means they’ve always been there waiting with open arms when I’ve returned.
It’s an absolute pleasure to know people like that. Relaxed enough to understand that life happens beyond this here internet, but close enough to be friendly.

It’s people like that, that make life that little bit more survivable.

Seeing as I have more time, I shall try and update the blog more often. I have a couple of things I would like to say already.


Hello everyone~

How are we today?

I am trying to kickstart my creativity again by attempting to write some Aliens flash fictions. Just some short extracts of about 500-1000 words. This might be a little long compared to others, but I don’t think Flash Fiction has a widely accepted length.

It’ll just be some simple, easy things to get my writing going again, seeing as I have been lacking in that department. Actually, I feel like I have been lacking creativity in most departments of my life as of late, so it’ll be good to get things up and going again.

So, if anyone has any prompts they’d like to suggest please let me know?

I have a list saved, but would be great to get some personal ones as well.


Every once in a while it’s nice to treat yourself – so when I saw this particular treat on ebay for sale I just couldn’t help myself. A while ago I used to be a real avid statue/model collector and loved having them all on display. Sadly, those days have pretty much gone by the wayside and I just have a select few left.

Namely, Pinhead, Spock and a really strange Hudson model that my friend Jason brought for me.
Thinking about it, all these models that I have left were gifts.
Pinhead from John Heyhurst from my University days.
Spock, from my sister – for reasons.
And I’ve mentioned Hudson already.

So, they’ll be a nice happy family once I have my shelf on the top floor sorted out!
