I'm a Classic!

Yup, that's right. I was told today that I am a classic.
OK, so it was followed by the words " of someone suffering from CFS." But if we ignore that...
Sod the lotta ya. So, the story is, I went to see the people at the CFS clinic today. A specialist who deals with people who suffer the same condition as me every day. It turns out I'm not anxious or depressed, well I could have told them that, and I did.
There are apparently three things that help everyone with CFS, first is a strictly controlled exercise regimine, which I am now on a waiting list (hooray Britain!) to get in on. Second is pacing, basically realising that if I do lots today, tomorrow I wioll be screwed. The third is Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, but they only seem to use that on people who are anxious or depressed (they don't mention anything about people with psycopathic tendancies, ho-hum).

On the comic side, I have started to sketch out a rough idea for what I want to do in the Courier Graphic Novel/Long comic. Only problem is that I keep thinking in far too grand terms - "There should be an earthquake." "No, there should be the invasion of an enemy nation state's army." "NO! There should be an earthquake set by an enemy nation so their army can invade." All this, I should mention, in the middle of an Infernal Affairs-type story. And if you haven't seen that film, do yourself a favour, go get it now!
But I am drafting in some characters from an unwritten story, because they will slot nicely into the world. I have a protagonist, an antagonist, a selection of minor characters, backstories, motivations. All I need now is an actual plot for the main story.
It's going to come, I'm sure of it.
