Look, a blog post!
I'm neglecting the blog again, and I know it. I'm bad! Horribly, awfully bad.
...and I really do feel bad about not posting much. Partly because I don't want to feel like I'm abandoning this thing which I've built, and fussed over, and spent a small, but vital part of my life putting together. Partly because I know some people actually read it, and I feel bad for not giving them a good reason to believe they didn't just waste a mouse click.
The other part is that I hate the fact that there might only be four or so posts in some of the monthly archive pages, and that just doesn't look good, when someone's going back through it all.
One the other hand, I feel really good about the comic. Through Keenspace, who hosts my little strip, I've gained connections and friends, and that's a great thing. I've finally gotten the comic page organized and pretty enough that I don't look at it and say, "I need to change that" anymore. I've almost got forty strips.
Then, on the...third hand? Yeah. Whatever. I have the novel, which is just sitting there, with nothing. No updates, because I haven't been writing on it. I take that back, actually. I wrote about a fourth of a chapter the other night, just to prove I could still work on it. I can, and am trying to. It's just hard to get motivated, for some reason.
Am I stretching myself out too far creatively? Am I trying to do too much at once? R~ says I'm insane, doing so much at once, but I love it. These things don't feel like a burden, really. I just seem to be having difficulty getting myself moving on the blog and novel, while with the comic, I'm going above and beyond the call of duty on a daily basis.
So if things are slow, don't hate me, and don't consider your click wasted. Just sacrifice one more precious click, and look at the comic page, and see what's been taking up my all my blogging time...
