In keeping with the theme of things not going my way, I have bad news and good news this time around.
The bad news is that I'm not sure I'll be able to get this one place I'm looking at.
The other bad news is that I'm kind of still very behind on things.
The less bad news is that I still haven't finished "Monsters".
The good news is that I finished re-writing (and sketching the pages for) The Empty King's fifth chapter. As per my usual with rewrites, it ended up totally different from what I remember of the previous version from the halfway point onward. However, it's a good different and I'm very happy with it.
The other good news is that, related to things mentioned in the bad news section, is that I have a back-up plan for the life things. It's largely dependent on some people I know getting good news, but it is a plan.
I still feel like I'm losing everything, though. Like all the good things are trying to fall out of my hands and bad things are hanging onto me and I can't breathe.
Right now, while I try to catch up more with my work, I'm just hoping the universe decides to grant me a little break from this period of bad luck.
