Missed opportunities, coincidences and doing stuff.

So yesterday I got up at a ridiculous hour to do a car boot sale, an attempt to rid myself of the mountains of videos in my room.
It did not go well, I still have most of them.
What I want to tell you about however, is the meeting of a girl and how I've been kicking myself since.

She came up to the videos as I was packing away, we chatted, and it seemed she was vry much like a female version of myself - where taste in film is concerned, not in respect to facial hair.
We chatted, then she said she was waiting until her friend came back from uni to go see Clerks 2, and she walked on.
I thought to myself, I should give her my number and say if she ever wanted to go see a film, then she could always ring me.
I didn't, because I am me.
Ever since I've been wondering what might have been had I done so - ho hum.

David Bishop finally added me to his friends on MySpace on Friday. Yesterday I thanked him and told him the Graphic Novel was on indefinite hold due to my work on The Carpenter's Apprentice and no communication with Emma.
This morning I awake to find an email from Emma saying she is ready to crack on with the book and thinks it will be even better now she has learnt more.
Life's just weird.

So now I will be alternating between Quinn and my novel. Probably doing more on the novel as it's got much more to write and I've set a deadline of New Year to have it done by.
With Quinn I hope to publish it as 4 individual comics, possibly in black and white, saving the colour print for the collected GN.
