24 - hour comic: not happening.

Well, this is a setback. I must adjust my plans down a bit -- at least remove the "within a calendar year" part from my goal. I need to look into whether I can do the comic "off-schedule", but I won't be able to do one on October 20th.

When I set myself upon this adventure, I was at a low point in my life, working at a job I hated, and not particularly happy. Now I'm in a job I really love, but it is a startup and we are in a big push to hit a major milestone. Also, my wife has another surgery coming up and there is much to do around the house to set it up for her recovery. Bottom line: even if I did the comic here at home, I could not spare the time.

I will do a 24 comic someday, inshalla.

Nanowrimo also seems pretty unlikely this year given my workload. I don't think I'll try to write 50K words in November, but maybe I'll start writing again.

I dunno whether there will be any reason to add to this blog, maybe there will be. But I'd like to thank my loyal reader :)

Heh, no problem, Glad life is looking up for you!

But keep in mind what the Nanowrimo guys say: if you want to get something done, tell a busy person to do it. Obviously if you're extremely pressed for time this won't work, but Nanowrimo is not really all that huge a burden when you come down to it. Writing 50,000 words in a month comes down to 1,667 a day, which I can nearly write in my sleep.

On the other hand, it's true that I'm not participating myself this year. If I have a story idea that really needs to be written down it can help me power through the first couple of weeks, and by that point the rest could be a foregone conclusion. But if I don't have a strong idea it can be fairly troublesome.

Anyway, nothing says you can't give it a shot next year....
