    Status Report: Notes from Sabbatical – 090420:

    On top of 2020 putting a wrench into my plans, I simply burnt myself out going 1000mph and wrecked my health as a result. It took all of August to rest up enough to start working again, and by working, I mean getting back into creativity. The difference now–and due to being careful with my health–is I’m working at a much slower pace.

    I know you’re used to regular content from me, but that’s something I cannot provide right now. Right now the goal is to ease back into creating and go at a pace that doesn’t destroy me.

    I’m feeling a lot better after a month’s rest, but I still have a ways to go in terms of recovery so self-care has been the priority these days and I’m taking things one day at a time, sometimes even one moment at a time.

    There are no deadlines. There are no promises. Just simply creating art for the joy of it and telling you about it when appropriate.

    Anyway, I hope you are all doing well.

    This concludes Status Report: Notes from Sabbatical – 090420.


  • Self-care Day

    Markers

    As we continue barreling down the 2020 Timeline of All Things at 1000mph, we also need to remember to take time for self-care, so today will be a half day–or self-care day–because I have an appointment that needs tending to if this middle-aged machine is going to keep bringing you books and comics.

    Attention is also being given to the workflow behind the scenes because, I’m learning, I can’t approach this business like I did prior to being ill. Different variables, both internal and external, have created a different climate in which to work.

    Some retooling is occuring in order to not wind up bed-ridden again.

    Yes, I recognize I sometimes talk a lot of publishing flow here on the blog. This is just me getting my ideas up and processed so I can try a mosaic of things, see if they work, and remove and/or add where needed until the mosaic has some form to it and I’m happy with the image.

    Enjoy your weekend. Read some movie reviews.

    New issue of The Canister X Transmission ships tomorrow.

    See you.

    vLog – What Happened During my Week Off-line.

    Last week, I was mostly off-line outside of a few work things that couldn’t be avoided.

    I made this video on the Friday to share my thoughts on the experience.

    Watch the video below and see if you identify with anything said and, perhaps, it might encourage you to put your own self-care first when needed as well.

    Enjoy!
