I've been pretty quiet since I published my last webcomic (The Partner). Right now I'm in a spot where...I honestly never saw myself being.
I'm putting a lot of effort into writing more stories and comics (Right now Marcelo & Carl are working on our latest webcomic which will be coming out in late December) and for any future webcomics, I don't want to have all my stories in Gotham City. I do have another script I gave Marcelo earlier this year and I have another one that I finished just last week.
A few weeks prior to that, I finished what's my biggest comic script to date. And the exciting thing is, it's all original characters. No Batman, Robin, or any characters that you've seen before. It helps that it's based off a true story from my own life experience. To change things up...I'm actually thinking of self-publishing this one; making physical copies that one day I could sell at a show.
Am I happy with my warehouse job? No. In fact I'd go so far to say that it's right now the least favorite thing in my life right now. And maybe I'm being unfair to it by saying that but it's my opinion.
I want to stay there at least a year. And with my one year anniversary coming up in late November...
Don't worry, I'm not quitting yet. I'd want to have something to go to before I jump ship, however it'll probably happen next year. Besides, it looks more impressive on my resume if I say I started in 2022 and left in 2024 compared to leaving in 2023. A future employer will look and say, "Ah so you did two years at ________?"
Oh and to really shake things up, for the past few months I've been seeing someone. Yeah, believe it or not I found someone who can willingly stand my company over extended periods of time.
I joke, but it's really nice to have someone who gives me self-confidence, self belief and encourages me in my writing. Honestly, since we've started dating I've felt more alive in my writing, more excited about it. More importantly, I've felt happier.
And apparently I look happier as well. I'm not too certain about that but then again I'm not exactly looking at my face that often. But even I think I must be happier if I'm writing love poetry (No, you may not read it).
So not the biggest update I could make at the moment but if right now the worst thing in my life is that I hate my job...things must be looking up.
