(Wow that new Journal interface do I get it because I'm a beta tester or is it public already? Either way it's looking good, much better than it used to.)
I'm starting to feel better than I've had thorough the last four weeks (which were, to sum things up in as few words as possible, a hellish succession of absolute despair, mild euphoria and plain apathy). Saturday, I drew for the first time in a very long while, and it felt great. I'm also going to get psychiatric support, so things are definitely starting to look a little brighter.
Also, yesterday I rushed Chuunibyou Demo Koi ga Shitai!. I can't say much about the plot because I don't want to spoil it, but I will say this: this anime felt like a huge wake-up slap for me (and is probably part of the reason why I managed to jolt myself into writing this this morning rather than stay silent one more day). These twelve episodes made me realize an insane amount of things I'd never suspected about myself, and for that reason alone I think I can safely place it in the pantheon of the works that made me want to change myself, right next to Suzumiya Haruhi no Yuutsu and Neon Genesis Evangelion. So yeah.
I haven't resumed production for Creative Release
yet, but I'm getting there. I stormed up a few new ideas over the last week, and when I talked about them with some of my beta readers they seemed very enthusiastic. Now I only need to rebuild my production rhythm and a buffer, and publication can resume. I hope to have something up by the end of April.
Sorry about my silence over the last few weeks. I still read every single comment I receive, but lately I've been in too bad a state to formulate a coherent response (that's apparently starting to fade away so I might start answering stuff in the near future).
Thanks for your continued support. I'm looking forward to what's coming next!
