Update on the schedule for 7BLR

Update on the schedule for 7BLR - 11/20/2014

As some of you probably know, I've been at work for the last little while on another project besides Seven Billion Little Reasons. My hope was that I'd be a creative ironman and somehow keep up with my cartoons while meeting these other deadlines, all while holding down a 9 to 5 job and the rest of my life. Sadly, I don't think that's going to be possible.

So for at least the next little while, I'm going to be taking 7BLR from a schedule of "twice weekly" to "updates when I can swing them." Yeah, it's kind of a bummer. Having a deadline to meet has been kind of exhilarating. I didn't know if I was going to be able to be funny three times a week, or even two, and who knows? Probably I wasn't sometimes. But it's been fun trying, anyway.

That said, I definitely don't think of this as an end to 7BLR. I still have a bunch of ideas for toons, and until the world stops being absurd or I have to stop living in it, I know there will be no end of new ideas coming at me. But for now, I need to make sure I bring my best effort for the project that I'm going to be rolling out soon, and so I need to take a little time away from the pleasant labor of toonsmithing.

So I'll be gone altogether for a few weeks at least, just to catch my breath. Then I'll start posting again, but intermittently. And before very long, I'll be back with an announcement about my upcoming project.

Sorry, folks. Some of y'all have been very, very kind in reposting my stuff via your Facebook or your Twitter feeds, and believe me: I have relished it every single time.

Every. Single. Time.

But to quote an old song, don't dream it's over. I apparently can't juggle as well as I was hoping, but I damn sure ain't falling into silence. I just need take some time to focus in on this other project.

Have a good Thanksgiving.
