Firstly, if you haven’t heard already… Kneel Before Pod is being put on hiatus. It pains me that this happened just as the show was getting back into the swing of things, but there was nothing I could do to avoid it. As a result, I am going to be taking a break from podcasting in general. Not saying I won’t ever podcast again, but as of right now I have no plans to podcast outside of Kneel Before Pod. I have plans for a couple podcast projects I want to do, but now isn’t the right time for anyone that is involved. Sorry podcast fans…
Secondly, writing is getting back on track. I had another dirty relapse with my depression, but it’s getting a lot better. I am trying yet another medicine and this one seems to be doing the trick. It’s still early, but I’m not getting that awful medicine head or the dreaded creativity block that I sometimes get with anti-depressants. Hopefully this will be a long term solution for me and my illness will no longer get in the way of my work.
Currently I am talking to an artist about drawing up some concept art and test pages for Tesla Force. I am also in the process of outlining two other projects, one of which is converting my perpetually revised novella Far West into a comic script. I think it works better in a visual medium and find I prefer writing script more than traditional prose. Whenever I write prose I feel like I’m just blowing a lot of smoke, where as script writing allows me more focus on the plot and story elements. We’ll see how it turns out, but I am really positive. Not to mention it feels like I can tell more story in less space.
That’s all I have to share right now. Hopefully I’ll have some more updates soon.
PS – I am also now totally in love with My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic… it’s like a disease. A wonderful, loving disease.
