Shame the Popes did him so dirty, but what else can one expect from, well, popes?

My favorite story about him is his sneaking in at night to carve his name and “Did This” across the Pieta’s chest-strap. Il Divino knew how to handle the haters.

Chipping away at this character’s reticence like Buonarrotti tapping with hammer and chisel, turning stone into satin flesh.

It’s time for a combat scene. Making a character bleed might help.

Bloody release day nerves, exposed to raw air. I am so a-twitch even a run hasn’t settled anything.

400 words on one project. Sitting and staring, fingers itching but the words won’t drip free.

I suspect I’m nervous.

*sings* Had Catalina, it was workin’ just fine, then Apple forced Big Suuuuuuuur…
