Commission Queue

Hey guys~

I’ve decided I will no longer be accepting commissions and will be going back to slots. Between getting things ready to move and a fairly inconsistent/crappy work schedule, it’s been hard for me to find time and energy to work on commissions and even my own writing projects.

I don’t know how many slots I’ll do at a time just yet, but I will list off which ones I’m currently working on in this journal and try to keep it updated when I can. You can also take a look at my Trello for these as well, which is linked to my profile page.

Once the current queue is completed, I’ll try to let you guys know what my plans are with taking commissions, along with a potential YCH story I’ve been wanting to try out.

Also, just want to say thank you to everyone who has commissioned me thus far and have donated to my Ko-fi; it’s been quite fun writing for you guys and seeing that you all appreciate my work! 🙂

Commission queue:
1. Alan Greymuzzle 2
2. Anonymous commission
3. RexOrchid 2 (needing to start draft)
4. Italianblackcat
5. Anonymous commission
6. Anonymous commission

Formatting Your Manuscript – 25 Lines Per Page

Writers In The Storm Blog

by Jenny Hansen

When someone in my writing chapter asked me if I could “please, please, please write a blog about how to get 25 lines per page,” I responded “of course I will” even though I’d never done this setting in my life. I thought, I’ve been teaching Word since version 2.0, I can do a pesky Paragraph setting. Right?

Not so much.

I’ve been writing for nearly a decade and teaching computer classes for longer than that. Why had I never done this before, you ask? Mostly because I’m half blind. Times New Roman, for example, makes me crazy because when there is an “r” and an “n” next to each other, to me they look like an “m.” I secretly believe that if my manuscript is in an easy-to-read font like Arial or Tahoma, the editor (that poor soul who reads thousands of pages a week) will be more kindly disposed to buy…

Deciding to open up commissions


Hey Guys~

Yeah I still have one left in the queue, but I would like to try and keep somewhat of a steady flow of commissions rather than opening/closing them at the most random times (at least that’s how I feel I’m doing it, anyway).

So, as of right now, I’ve decided to leave them open, more than likely, indefinitely. Keep in mind, this time around, you are required to fill out a form after reading my guidelines. I’m hoping this makes things easier for both of us and speed up the process somewhat. I have also increased my max word count to 10K words and removed an item on my Won’t Write list. Aside from that, the process is pretty much the same.

I also might keep posting stories to one or two sites, rather than every single one I’m on, but use the others for advertising/communication; not sure on that one yet.

Why I haven’t been writing lately (I know, I know)

Hey guys~

Yeah…I haven’t been writing a lot lately; a lot of that is due to how fast things have been changing in my life for the past few months. Between starting a new job and starting my last semester in college a few weeks ago, I also got thrown under the bus and was forced to find a new place before my friend moved to Utah (which was today). So, after working a temporary summer job, I had to start a new, full-time job (which is night shifts), start my last semester of college (which is thankfully just two classes), and move to a new place fast. All at the same time. Continue reading

Projects, Projects, Projects

Hey Guys,

Just a quick-ish update on what I’m planning on doing.

First of all, in case you haven’t noticed on my profile page, I decided to set up a ko-fi profile to try out for a while. It’s a small donation service for people to show support for content creators and give them a little motivation. There’s a link for it at the bottom of the page.

Now onto business. Continue reading

Small, General Update to TOS

I have recently updated my TOS for commissions, request, and trades to include a section regarding cancellation and denial of these. I should’ve included this section earlier, but have failed to do so due to being busy with college this past Spring. But, it’s up now, and I will be linking these pages to all art sites I’m currently on.

Apologies for delay with commissions

Hey guys,

Figured I’d give you guys a bit of an update, mainly for those two still waiting on commissions.

Overall, I’ve been very busy. Between my “final” semester of college, trying to maintain some exercise routine, dealing with family stuff, and trying to maintain some sort of social life…I feel like I have little room to breath. Obviously that leaves me with little time to write; at this point, I’m taking any chance I can get. Continue reading

Commissions Reminder & Status Update + General Life Update

Hey Guys~

As I’ve mentioned in this post I wouldn’t start on commissions until all the slots are filled or if they take too long to fill. It’s been over a week already since my first slot’s been claimed, so I may begin working on them soon.

With that said, I will start working on one or both of them starting tomorrow evening or Saturday. However, with Christmas just around the corner and New Year’s on deck, I don’t know how much I’ll get done. I still have one week left at work, and then I’ll have a couple weeks free until I go back to college.

As for my submission to Roar 8, I have no clue if I’ll get that done by the deadline by this point (Feb. 1st). I’ll still work on that as well as much as I can; it sort of involves another story of mine that I would like to finish.

I do admit, I’ve been slacking quite a bit on my writing habits lately. I’ve slipped out of trying to write every day (or most days when I can) and have only managed to write on the weekends, if I don’t have anything going on. Also, with the snow we’ve gotten the past couple weeks here, I’ve been a little weary about driving someplace else to go write. It’s hard for me to write at home (dare I say impossible), and I’d have to go in the next city over just to find a place that’s open late enough for me to write. There’s nowhere I can go in my small town anymore where I can go write. Hopefully this won’t become as much of a problem when I go back to school and start living with my boyfriend; I feel more at home there.

In other news, I recently joined the ranks of the Anthro Wrestling Federation (AWF) over on FA. No, you’re not going to see this tiger get in any bouts; that’s what I have Jamie for, haha. In any case, they are a wrestling RP group that, from what it sounds like, is on it’s third revival right now. I’ve only RPed once a while back (nothing fighting related) and I usually don’t RP in general. I also know little about wrestling and merely the basics. Thankfully Yarred, Ryl, Zander, Zeal, and Jeb have given me some great tips despite my uncertainty. And after chatting a bit in the group chat, both in character and out of character, I think I’m gonna like this group of guys ^^

Finally, a reminder that there is ONE SLOT LEFT FOR COMMISSIONS!!!!! Requests and trades are still open as well. There are subpages under the “About Commissions, Requests, and Trades” tab with more info on those.
