The Adventures of RAT GiRL!

Since having accumulated quite a few new readers lately (bless you Black Boxes!!!) I thought I'd better post a bit of background on my other blog 'The Adventures of RAT GiRL.'

But for the readers that already know all about it... KEEP READING coz there's something in this post for you too! ;-)

The Adventures of RAT GiRL is a comic that I have created as a way of getting my aggression and frustration out over my unfortunate past, life experiences.

I actually started this comic as an experiment before I fell pregnant when I had decided to quit smoking, and used it as a way to keep myself busy and keep my mind off cigarettes!

I ended up thoroughly enjoying it and it turned out to be a great form of therapy for me, so I've tried to keep it up ever since.

Although I only post a new episode about once a month (because it takes so frikken long!) it is definitely something that I will keep up.

Every episode is based on a real life experience, the characters are based on real life people, and even some of my blogger friends get a chance to feature in it! It's a lot of fun!!

I love to create episodes about some of my best life experiences and joyful events such as meeting hubby and other great things to come. But the main point of this comic is for the people that have hurt me in the past, I use this comic as a way to 'get my revenge' on them, but in a very humorous and entertaining way!

Although this comic is comedy and tongue and cheek, there is actually quite a serious side to it as there are times when I can actually get quite emotional during the creation of them, as the bad memories can be quite painful.

But once I get to the final RAT GiRL scenes where she gets her revenge... it truly is very comforting! Like a drug!!! Even though it's not real... I do get satisfaction out of the fantasy of getting revenge on these butt heads!!! HEEEHEEE! And by being able to entertain others with the humorous side to it, is also a very rewarding feeling!

So to all of my RAT GiRL fan's and readers (you know who you are) it is important to me to let you know that your interest, support and comments on my comic is TRULY APPRECIATED because of the deeper meaning behind it. I don't think you understand just how much it really means to me.

And since I can't give you all a physical hug... I'll give you this instead, as a token of my (and RAT GiRL's) appreciation...

It's yours to do what you please with!

So from the bottom of my heart... THANK YOU!! - Without you all I would have tremendous trouble overcoming the serious side that hides behind these humorous episodes. xx

Oh! and although I haven't started on season three as yet... Grams has a little something for you to show her appreciation to you too! *GiGGLeS* So POP ON OVER and see her!

As for the newer readers who don't know what the heck I'm on about, and would like to have a squiz at this comic to get an idea...

Feel free to check out the very first episode HERE to get the gist of the storyline.

And if you like what you see, you can check out the other episodes on the top right sidebar of The Adventures of RAT GiRL blog.

Also, at the end of every episode, I add links to post's of the real life story that each installment is based on, so if you are ever confused by what the episode is really about, you can find an explanation in the links at the end of each post.

But if you couldn't be arsed with checking out my comic at all... well that's OK too!!! You're just as appreciated as a reader of THIS blog!
