Thought I’d give you all an update on the webcomic. I’ve been working away on it. I have four comics written and rough thumbnails drawn for them. I’ve started drawing one of them, but I haven’t even finished my character developing sketches yet. That proved to be a problem, so I had to stop working on the comic and go back to the character developing. I guess I’m trying to run before I walk....or crawl, really.
It’s been an interesting journey. I want to try and get a comic up by July, but I’m trying to not pressure myself about it. I’m a very busy lady, what with working full time as the senior graphic designer at my day job, running this blog as my side hustle, dealing with the children’s book release stuff, trying to teach myself about podcasting, getting ready to move, delving into the world of eating better with Mr. LL (which means a lot more cooking at home and meal prep and grocery store running, not to mention budgeting/couponing) and taking care of the menagerie at home (two cats, a mischevious puppy and a baby turtle). Just typing all that made me panic, just a little bit.
But it’s not like I don’t get time to relax. Mr. LL and I watch one TV show episode as we eat dinner together, and we make time to see friends and family whenever we are able. This past Saturday, I went shopping by myself and bought probably too many pairs of shoes. I guess what I’m trying to say is that I have an overall mindset of “it’s going to get done when it gets done” and don’t hold myself to deadlines that are arbitrary. It keeps me sane – so does Mr. LL.
That’s not to say that I don’t have freak outs. I do. Mostly little, private ones right when I’m trying to fall asleep. Sometimes I just start cleaning the apartment or making lists because I feel like if I can’t do what needs to be done, for whatever reason, then I might as well do something else because I will just sit and fret.
I’ll be posting less rambling updates on the webcomic in the future.
