So I’m back from the SPACE comic convention. It was good to take a break from my life to be able to regroup a bit & set some priorities or whatever. Talking to one of the older comic book dudes, the guy just had a part time job that covered his bills so he could spend more time working on his comics. Which seemed kind of awesome to me, to just say, “I need to sacrifice this much time to have enough money to do what I actually care about” rather than just chasing to get a better house or car or whatever. I did get two comics done while I was up there (one will come out, the other was a gift) & that was cool. I made a few new comic friends who will be interviewed in upcoming QRDs. The buttons didn’t sell quite as well as I anticipated, but it was still a decent year sales wise.
There’s going to be a bunch more new content coming from Silber soon. I’m going to try (once again) to avoid the time suck of trying to promote things & get back on the content is king train. We’ll see how it pans out. I can tell you I think it will end up with me happier as a human being even if it doesn’t pan out financially.
Last Night’s Dream:
I’m at a family reunion & everyone is drunk. I realize I have to stop drinking to be sober enough for an emergency situation. My dad is drinking champagne out of a bottle, using his thumb to recap it to keep it from losing carbonation. My sister-in-law starts yelling at my sister for some reason. I hate feeling like the only responsible one all the time.
