Where the BLEEP are the Cartoons?

Regular followers of my blog have been getting a lot less ‘Sects lately than they have become accustomed to receiving. So… yeah, about that….

Were there technical issues? Yes, some.
Are you burnt out? No, lots of ideas yet to explore!
Did you decide to take a break? Maybe…
Are you just lazy and trying to cover that up? Probably…
Did you try and get cute and incorporate something that wasn’t part of the story only to realize that it screwed up the flow of what was coming next and you didn’t know how to untangle that? I plead the fifth!

Bottom line… there is no one answer for why I’ve had to skip a few days over the last couple of weeks. But sometimes things happen, and I think the smarter play has been to not force anything that wasn’t funny or part of the bigger plan just to say I haven’t missed a day.  Everybody takes a day off now and than, and honestly… that has not been in my makeup.

Sure, when I’m unemployed it seems like every day is a day off… except for the stress and worry.. but when I’m working, I rarely take days off. I traditionally worked through holidays too as long as I was paid. I’m just not a time-off vacation person. But, creatively, you do need a break. Just like I need to get up and walk around and get some water during a day of drawing… sometimes I need to take a day or five off from forcing my brain to do particular things.

All that said… Sunday (tomorrow) is either going to be really funny or irritating or (if I do it right) hopefully both! 🙂 And then I can get back to the regular schedule of intended nonsense to end February as originally planned and to move into the March fun as well. It is a little ironic, though, that on the shortest month of the year I posted proportionally less than usual. I mean, there would be less posts in a short month, obviously, but this month is way shorter than usual.

Anyway… hopefully back to your regularly scheduled nonsense… and random things… going forward… unless I see something shiny and get distracted again! 🙂

    1. I’m the one making my own deadlines, and I forget to add in time for taking a break.

  2. I totally get this. No matter how loose your schedule, sometimes you just need to breathe!

    1. Yeah, it’s bad when someone else makes your schedule and you don’t get a break… but when making your own schedule, it’s tough sometimes to remember to schedule it for yourself.

  3. Hey, everyone deserves a break. I don’t think any less of you. I used to pump out 5 cartoons a week (I guess I wanted to prove to myself I could do it) and I found that it ended up being about the target and not the cartoon. I dropped to 3 and now only one a week and I feel that is the right balance for me

    1. It’s kind of like… if you’re trying to carry too much stuff, and you almost drop one thing and you try to catch it only to bat it around and ultimately drop it AND mash up a few other things in the process… when you’d be better off just letting that one thing drop to begin with and learning not to try and carry so much all the time. I never learn the lesson, though! 🙂
