Little personal update, because I wanted to make sure I didn't leave you guys in the dark this time.

It's been a little over two weeks since the surgery. My condition has definitely been improving everyday. And as I think I've said before, I feel a lot better than two weeks after my last surgery (the surgeon's skill goes a long way, it seems). There are even some parts of the scar that have completely closed up already.

But despite recovery going notably well though, I still think I've got a ways to go. I try to make a habit of doing a small drawing session every couple of days. It's not easy to hold my position, but it - I think more than anything - really demonstrates my improving health by how I can sit there a little longer every time. Writing's a bit easier since I can drag my laptop wherever and prop it up in whatever way works. And I'm writing a lot. Not so much anything I can post unfortunately, but a couple days ago I finally completed the script for a much later chapter in Rain that'd been giving me trouble for a while (and honestly, I'm really, really happy with it). Now, I'm about twelve chapters ahead of the current posting, and eager to get the story moving along again. But I'm not ready to draw consistently, so I'll just keep writing, I guess. One of my resolutions for this year was to try and finish the entire script for Rain. While I've still got lots of work to do to make that happen, I feel like this recovery has giving me a lot of headway on that.

When I don't feel like working, my wife and I have been watching lots of movies via Redbox (slowly but surely, we're catching up on all the Oscar movies). Grand Budapest Hotel, Boyhood, and Whiplash were all excellent. Foxcatcher was - in my opinion - well acted, but otherwise incredibly dull and just made me feel uncomfortable. I also saw Pride, which while I don't think it was an Oscar movie, I thought it was a lot of fun.

I've also started replaying Pokemon Platinum. 4th gen was always kinda one of my lesser favorites Pokemon installments, but I picked it because I think it's been the longest amount of time since I played this one. Following my Omega Ruby setup, I'm opting to once again only use Pokemon I've never used before, and I have to admit, it does again feel fresh so far.

It seems a little odd that I'm replaying things, as I do have plenty on my shelf that I haven't touched yet. But a lot of them include platformers and action games. In my condition, I'm concerned about hurting myself if I get animated from sucking at it or something though (maybe I'm overthinking things, but it just seems wise for me to stick with RPGs and slower-paced games). I considered Dragon Age Inquisition too, which has been on my shelf since Christmas. But I cannot read the text in that game from my couch to save my life (am I the only one that's this blind?). In better health, I could happily sit closer to the TV, but as I am, it's too uncomfortable to play right now. It'll have to wait until I feel better, I suppose.

As you can see, there's not a lot to report, but I hope this has been at least a little interesting. Thank you again for your patience. Much love, Rain Beaus! <3

Glad to hear that you are recovering well. You're not the only one that has a hard time reading the text in Dragonage. I have to be right up against the tv screen to read the text, I suppose if the tv was much bigger it would be easier to read.

No, you're not the only one that blind. I. Play on my PC normally but watched a friend play DA:I back when it was first released and I swear it has smaller than normal subtitles because I couldn't read it further than 4 feet away on his PS4's TV screen.

Pride is a terrific movie! I hope laughing doesn't hurt, because I'm sure you laughed a lot watching it.
