Hello dear viewers,
I recognize I really haven’t been the best at uploading pages recently. I apologize profusely. Sometimes when you’re working on a project, life likes to get in the way. I realize I haven’t been taking the greatest care of my well-being.
I have a nasty habit of running myself into the ground and overworking myself. Tale of Strun is being worked on at the same time as a full-time job, family and friends, and other life obligations. I was feeling very depressed, and a touch ill during the end of the summer due to all of the wildfire smoke, and it was really difficult to work on much of anything. Later this week, I am going to Florida for the first time on a quick trip.
I truly don’t mean to make excuses, but you just need to be honest with yourself and take care of yourself. If it becomes physically and mentally hard to work on something, sometimes the best thing you can do is step away from it for a while, clear your mind of it entirely. When the time is right you will have a burst of energy, and be able to, for instance, write 150 pages, draw 70 in pen and ink, and finish 40 digital pages (which is what Colton and I did in practically two years, it’s kind of amazing.)
Additionally, I started writing my book again. You see, I quit writing to focus on drawing Tale of Strun. Working on one project for extended periods of time really begin to wear on you after a while. So, in order to take care of myself, I decided to work on another project near and dear to my heart, one that I’ve wanted to complete for a very long time.
All of that being said, I LOVE TALE OF STRUN. I have genuine affection for the story, especially because I wrote it together with my best friend. It’s been one of the most fulfilling projects to work on, and it has changed so much of how I see working on projects. In a few weeks, there will be new pages, and they will be better than ever, because my heart will totally be in it.
