Reasoning for my writting preference

I've recently got the urge to continue my stories. I've been asked why I tend to focus on animal characters instead of humans. The reasoning behind that is quite simple, animals are more interesting.

Each species of animals has their own traits that make them unique. Take for example, a raccoon. If you give him the ability to walk on hind legs, and to talk (or at least make it seem that way from the readers point of view) you would get everything you would already get from humans, but theres more to them. Add in the fact that they are attracted to shiny things, and tend to rummage though the garbage, which easily allows for comedy.

Not only raccoons, but every animal has their own characteristics. Every animal has the option to easily express a set of characteristics in which, you may or may not see from people.

Now, if I just happen to make great progress on the stories, I'll make a section for stories, and post it there. Until then though, you will just have to wait and see what comes forth.

What a great start to the new Year

Well it's here. The jolly holidays are out the window, and stores already have Valentines inventory out. We made our resolutions, now to attempt to accomplish them. My new year resolution is to finally find a job (hopefully) and to give the site itself more attention. Sadly its not going all that well for me.

For the past 12 days I've been having trouble sleeping. I've been tossing and turning, and drifting in and out of sleep. To make matters worse I have new neighbors. Loud, obnoxious neighbors with equally loud kids. Screaming up and down the stairs, yelling very loudly, and a dog to boot.

Well all things are not entirely bad. I've been having a blast playing Mario Galaxy. It has been my one savior when all alone.
