Sorry for the lack of updates. I’ve been leaving it to the wife to update the blog for a while now. So what’s been going on?
Hmm, nothing all that interesting. Been trying to get back on track since Heroescon.
I say “trying” because it’s been pretty hard. Lots of distractions going on around these parts. I’m a creature of habit and the ideal work schedule for me has always been:
Wake up at aroung 7-8 am.
Surf online and read comics and manga for an hour to clear my head of cobwebs.
Get caught up on what I’m doing for the day. That takes about a half an hour.
Start drawing. This usually starts around 9 – 9:30.
The wife gets home around 4:30pm or so. We do the usual married couple thing for about an hour or two, then I get back to drawing. This is usually at a less fervented pace than earlier in the day.
Well, anyways. Been trying to get back on track with everything. It’s been rough. Lots of things that need attention, like now.
On the plus side, it also looks like things may clear up in a few weeks. My deadline for Batgirl is the 19th. Which means I have to bust out about 3 pages a day until then. Whoooooo-eee! I didn’t get anything done for BLANK last week. Not looking like I’ll have anything until after the 19th. I may try to squeeze in a page or so between then.
Oh yeah, we’re also trying to get the house fixed up to put on the market by the last week of this month. We were shooting for the 22nd at first, but… HAHAHAHAH! Yeah…
We also need to work things out with the loan peoples. Trying to get in at a good rate, since, you know, the rates are going up. Oh, we also need to check the house we are looking to buy to make sure this what we really want. (more debt)I think that may be happening today or tomorrow, but we need to work quickly if we want to put a contract in on that house. (It’s a seller’s market out here in Northern VA)
Only two more trips to the doctor’s for granny’s weekly Hyalcon shots. (I take care of all of granny’s healthcare needs, since, you know, I don’t have a REAL job… ie: I sit at home. aka: Not a real job) Not that I mind, actually. I’d rather it was me that took care of granny’s healthcare to make sure it’s on the up and up.
Right. Not done complaining yet.
This is one of those times that I curse myself for always experimenting with my art. If I had just stuck to the one thing and just did that everyday for ten years, I’d be like a machine! Pumping out pages without even thinking. 3 pages a day would be like a cakewalk! Ah… but yeah. Damn me!
I’m easily distracted anyways. Need to buckle down now. 3 pages a day! Ready? Set. GOOOOOOOO!
*ring* Oh hey, is that the phone? Wait, must be the mailman. No wait, it’s the DHL guy….. I wonder how my ebay item is doing? I wonder what Storming Norman’s up to?
Oh, I need to get my taxes back from the accountant…
