But the good news is, I got started tonight on next week's strips. So hopefully I can get them done (or mostly done) this weekend, giving me some breathing room next week to work on Tough Breaks.
This poor book ... it really is having a difficult birth. :( Much more so than the other books have so far.
I've got to get it done, tho ... because Carpe Diem isn't going to wait! Working for somebody else really forces you to keep to a schedule, which is occasionally just the kind of iron fist I need. Of course, that was what I hated about writing for the gaming industry: "Write 5,000 words for Mage and have it to us by Tuesday. You'll get $60." On Friday. 0.o I was proud of my ability to come through in a clutch -- but I got sick of having to keep coming through in a clutch, particularly when it wasn't my "day job" so to speak.
The bad news is, I didn't get as far as I wanted on the strips because laurie_robey maliciously played something very interesting on the DVD player. Meanie! ;P Here I was, happily slaving away, and she puts in a new "Making of Star Wars" video with footage of Kurt Russell auditioning for the part of Han Solo.
Like I'm supposed to resist that???
Harumph. And now it's after 11:00 and I need to go to bed and everything!
Life is terribly unfair!
PS: Waah, waah, waah!
