This is going to be the last thursday update for a while. As much as it pains me to slow down on DS, the fact is that doing two books simultaneously is too much for me for now. Some of you might remember that I'm currently working on a middle grade graphic novel called Beetle and the Hollowbones. This is an older child and new baby situation, I'm trying to make this new book happen (plus freelance, so I can afford to live) and I know DS is a big five year old comic. It can survive not being the center of attention until winter while I work on Beetle. I absolutely hate the idea of slowing down on updates here, but as it is I'm missing them even while overworking myself. I've begun to burn out on this thing I adore and that's a bad time and it makes for a worse book.
Because I'm cutting down to one update a week, updates should skip less often and be more timely (I hope). After Beetle is done, if I play my cards right, I'll have the means to finish DS fast, fiercely, and with the panache it deserves. I don't think it's gonna wrap up while we're slowed down. But by the time I'm ready to devote time to it, it's gonna be close, and I'm excited to get there.
Thanks for reading, as always. It helps that you all consistently treat me and each other with respect. I'm thrilled by how many of you have stuck around and poured love or time or words or even somehow money on this project. I'm glad every day that you're all along for the ride with me.
See ya on monday for the next one.
