A new year comes ever closer, and 2010 ten draws to a close. To say I’m relieved would be an understatement. So, I suppose the first order of business is unfortunately, an apology.
First off, an update to our main story hasn’t appeared in six months. Second, for the last four years, without fail, I have given back to the community I love on Deviant Art through the Twelve OC’s of Christmas. I wish I could say December passed me by only because of my newest job working for the Mouse, but that would be a lie. It’s mostly been personal and financial issues that have given me a level of hopelessness I haven’t had in many, many years. Feeling like there’s no point to trying, not receiving any monetary compensation for my efforts—in general not working and feeling sorry and angry instead.
I wish I could say listing all that isn’t partly to gain pity, but I’m so furious at myself for breaking my unsaid promise to the lot of you that I couldn’t take someone else calling me on it. I’m aware of my bad habits, gaining pity when I’ve torn myself down enough is one of the worst.
But, what’s done is done. Now for a new year, and new promises for me to make to you and myself, and struggle as hard as I can to keep. Of course, after much deliberation and discussion between myself and Marlon, we’ll be dropping the Clockwork Cavatinas from Ever Tomorrow, and focusing on our main story. If there’s a little extra for you readers now and again, I’ll let you know through blogs. Our goal is to make it to multiple posts per week again, but that’s going to have to wait for at least getting one post a week regular.
I also will be working on finding ways to increase my income, starting with ghost blogging! I had no idea the large number of sites and companies needing content, but my sister has been helping me get started.
Also, expect new content on this site up much more often, thanks to my brand spanking new Android! There’ll be quite a flood of my caricature work from now on, but something is certainly better than nothing. When I illustrate or doodle, I’ll be better about posting them, I just have quite a backlog of sketchbook work to polish a bit and post.
As worthless as I myself feel apologies are for lack of content, please accept my apology, and bear with me. Things have been very rough on this end, and unfortunately I can’t say many details openly.
The best really is yet to come, just be patient. It’s coming. It’s always coming.
