I found myself in something I love

I haven't written a blog post in over 3 years.

Does anyone even read them?

I deleted the last one. I was in a new chapter in my life, and that chapter ended, and an even better one started. 

There is an amazing person in my life who I love who supports me more than I could have ever imagined. He loves anime and manga, and gave me the idea to start Trinity's Instagram. He keeps me motivated when I feel like my art is crap and Trinity doesn't matter.

I'm not lonely anymore.

I have my Aiden.

He took forever to get here, but he is my other half. 

"He makes me feel at ease... Like he got me moving again." 

Chapter 1, page 5

He reads every page of Trinity, (he's even getting a character modeled after him later), and he's my biggest fan, my coach, and my inspiration.

Well, the world of Zevera page has finally been edited. There's going to be more, but that's all for now. I'm way too busy with school to do much more :(

Anyway, I hope you guys are reading Between You and Me, too! ;D

Chapter three officially starts tomorrow! I guess that means I'll have to start scanning and editing stuff...

I need to draw more.

Not just Trinity. I think I want to do one of those challenge things. Every day I draw a different theme things. But I don't want to do one and start skipping ones I don't like after day 4. I've done them a couple times and that's always what happens.

Maybe I'll do it, and actually put more than 2 pictures on my Deviantart account and upload them here too....

But that involves more time, and my OCD brain won't allow me to do this unless I have a separate art book than the one I use for Trinity. And that's more money. That I don't have. It's nice to feel inspired for a few minutes...... Even if I feel defeated afterward.

When I first started writing Trinity, Mia was based on me. (duh. Even the name). But like all the other characters, she's totally different now.

The four best friends are based on my four best friends growing up. We're all still really close, and we were all homeschooled. But when I started Trinity, I started public high school, so there is some truth behind the backs story. But Aiden is still completely fictional.

Aiden is one of  the characters in Trinity who is based completely on fiction.

Mia originally started as an embodiement of myself, but like all the other characters, changed too much at this point to be anywhere true to the original.

I started writing Trinity at a serious crossroads in my life: high school, which is a big deal for anyone, but even more so for me. I was home schooled until 9th grade, so it wasn't just high school,  it was my first real school. When the story gets in to Mia's part you'll read more about that. Basically everything from Mia's point of view is true to how I felt when I was 13 years old, and Aiden was that one person that I hoped would reach out to me in high school so I wouldn't be alone (it ended up being awesome by the way).

The first pages of Trinity weren't actually written until 4 or 5 years ago, when the characters weren't anything like their originals anymore and so I gave Aiden more of a story.
