Now that the celebrations for the year are over, I can try to concentrate on what I will be doing the upcoming year. With the cool happenings over in Headless Bliss, I feel I want more of a presence in the comic/writing world. To do this, I actually have to complete something worthwhile. In the upcoming months, I will attempt to concentrate all of my effort on projects I have let linger for far too long. Having recent computer woes didn’t help, but I think those are mostly fixed. The list of things I need to complete are as follows:
My Frozen fan fic, which is still slogging along in Chapter 10 of 23. This needs to get done as soon as I can get it done. I have many AU stories that tie into it.
A short story for that I am about halfway through. I write it, then have to edit it down for content. Fortunately, it’s short, so I should have this done soon. Afterwards, I’ll work on the eagerly awaited Part 2 of a story already in progress.
Afterlife with Josie and the Pussycats. Seriously, I need to finish this. It’s up to 12 pages (10 will be displayed here on dA), but the inking process still annoys me. I’m working on the cover and pages 4 and 5, but the first two items are taking precedence at the moment. I will get to it. No question. It’s already written out with complete dialogue (moans and groans excepted) and two new pages already laid out.
In and amongst these major projects, I have 17 requests to fill, 10 story ideas to develop, 6 fan fics to get to, four Flash cartoon series to write and design for, and a couple of actual jobs to finish. I also need to work with my new tools: a Cintiq 13HD, which I have never used before, and my new MacBook Pro. It’s all part of the creative process. If I could hire someone to clone me or instill some professional drive in me, I’d do it. As it stands, I’m much too easily distracted by shiny objects to be effective.
Maybe I’ll find my professionalism again once I start fresh. I know I’ve said it before, but I need to keep on saying it. Maybe it will come true when I least expect it.
