I am thinking of doing something crazy and… taking a month off. Next month, December. I’ve worked like a dog this year, like crazy. I’ve run five Kickstarter campaigns, issued five books (in eleven editions), one short story collection and an additional seven audiobooks; I did two months’ worth of web comic backlog, dumped stuff into my Zazzle store, wrote business columns, finished five big paintings and did some number of drawings, set up two new websites (mcahogarth.org and threejaguarscomic.net)…
Finished writing one novel… started and finished another…
You know, it’s taken me long this realize, but I’m tired.
There’s stuff I can’t afford to drop for a month; I still have some audiobook work to do, and I have the Kickstarter fulfillment to finish up. But I’m thinking of doing away with the rest of my checklists until next year. If I do any “work” it will be because I feel like it, not because I feel obliged to hit a deadline.
That actually sounds kind of nice?
How much you want to bet that resolution will last a week? -_-
