"Three First Dates, Part 17"
First off, thank you for still being here after six
months. I owe you all an explanation for only having
two comics in all of 2017.
The 2016 election was bad for all of us. But it wasn't
a knockdown blow. It made me unhappy, sure, and it's
hard to draw when I'm not happy. But after a few weeks,
I should have been able to get back up from that blow.
But then I got a new (ultimately temporary) position at
work that sapped a ton of energy and time, which I then
didn't have for the comic. Add to that that it was the
busiest time of the year at my job, AND a product
launch, and I had little time or energy for anything
Then my sister died. No one saw it coming. She went to
bed March 8th, and was gone the morning of March 9th.
That was a knock down blow, and I was just out of it.
I attempted to come back in May, then again in July and
September. But that knockdown blow, and the other kicks
while I was down, shut me down for months.
I have not been emotionally well.
In some ways I'm still not. But...I've made a couple of
new commitments in life with the new year, and it's time
I got this train moving again. I have stories to tell,
books to write, and I've neglected them for far too long
chasing a pipe dream that will never happen.
It's time to chase a different pipe dream that will
never happen. But one I will enjoy doing.
