Thirty Is Pretty Great

So. I don’t  have a comic for you this week. Probably won’t  have one next week. Will try to get one up by the holidays, but I think we may be looking at a June release, at the earliest. Very sorry. Grad school has proven a bigger bear than I anticipated. Scratch that. It’s proven EXACTLY as difficult as anticipated, and for that reason alone, my time for comicking has drastically been reduced.

Be that as it may, I will try to keep weekly updates going as long as I am able. Maybe throw a few In His Spare Time’s at you. See what happens.

Now, to address the title of this post. I turned 30 in April. So far, being 30 is kind of amazing. Having my mind blown constantly by all the ignorance and ridiculousness of modern society and how this ignorance has infected and infested our public school system. But I’m also learning about the great, unsung heroes of my nation, and for that, I am grateful and inspired.

Also new this year: The amount of farts I give has been growing steadily closer to zero. And it is amazing. Tyler Durden was right. There is an amazing amount of freedom you gain from being able to let that which does not matter truly slide.

Book Update — Ahh! So Close!

Hey, folks.

Been rethinking the map of my world, both in a geographical and political sense. I’d put my Lost Order of Good Guys too far away from the Evil Bad Land for them to be effective.  And it makes no sense for a wizard’s tower to be that deep in the dragons’ mountains.

Anyway, the point here is I have to give it one more round of personal editing, then another professional edit, then let some writers’ groups look at it and all that.

Once that’s done, I’ll start submitting again to agents.

Frustrating, I know. Will let you know as soon as it’s done.

The good news is the first book is the hardest one. The rest will come out much quicker!

Fallow Period Ends

Hey guys! Well, it’s been a month or so. Time to get back to work! I’ll be polishing up Emerald Sword with some help from friends and editors and editor-friends. Final draft should be done by mid-June at the latest.

I’ll also be reorganizing and revamping older blog posts over at Optimist’s Umbrella. So, be sure to check that out.

Lots off stuff happening this year. Looking forward to this book being done!
