Getting the Train On Track

Other pursuits for the past few years have diverted my attention from my original passion, which was working on this fictional universe that I write about on this blog.  Those diversions have distracted me on a weekly basis from putting any energy into producing original, fictional content.  Home life, work, the world and its problems--it can all be a huge block for what a guy originally sets out to do.  I feel like the ever-procrastinating George R.R. Martin with this project. 

All that said, I've had a lot of thoughts about getting book two finished, sent to an actual publisher, rather than doing the Kindle-self-publishing thing, and perhaps even getting Bovodar and the Bears illustrated in some fashion.  I think that this story could be better told in a visual medium, truth be told. 

And with that, here is an illustration from a close friend who occasionally helps me along with this vision.  It is a scene in which the great owl, Gabbella, dived down to snatch away Bovodar's friend, Grep Humblemine, the little mole who served as his butler.
