If I have any chance of getting this year’s Captain Yuletide done by December I’m going to have to lighten my load on articles this week. There are a few topics I want to talk about and a few more Christmas specials and music I’ll be adding to the playlists, so I’m going to make this pre-Christmas week a little shorter on posts. There are a couple of topics, at least one of which is time-sensitive and already a bit late thanks to general posting schedules anyway, that I want to get out so I’ll work on those, but no comic or book review this week.
I know this leaves a few cliffhangers. Jake Cardigan is caught in a trap and he can’t walk out, Tails and Rotor are on solo adventures while Knuckles looks for his new friends, and I’m almost done with the WildStorm Robotech comics, thus ending that franchise of currently owned comics for a while. (I’d like to get more in the future.) And the week after Christmas I take off altogether to reset before the new year. This has not been a very creative year thanks to illness, though thankfully no surgery like last year or 2016, technical issues, and just a sort of drained feeling as to how much is messed up right now in my life. In fact I didn’t get to talk about it during Art Soundoff because I couldn’t get myself to work on that thanks to health issues. It’s kind of annoying and getting my sleep cycle back on track has been another concern. Still, this has to be done if it can lead to a better comic, which is where all these posts are supposed to be leading up to, making me a better storyteller.
Everything should go back to normal on New Years Day, but we’ll see how well that prediction goes. Hope you all have a great week and a Merry Christmas (or whatever holiday you follow…still hope December 25th is a good day for you) and I’ll try to get the comic done before the ball drops in Times Square.
