I tried out something new for the Behind-the-Scenes blog on Patreon. A video diary, rambling (with many extreme hand motions) about what I’m working on and the things I’m thinking about. It was a lot of fun, and I think I will make more of them in the future. I’ve always wanted to keep a diary, but never found the written kind had much appeal. My thoughts tend to branch and scatter, going from one tangent to another, and writing a journal always felt like trying to play catch-up with my mind. The video version seems to match the way my mind works a little better. Plus, the visual and audio elements are features that a written journal just can’t capture…unless you count my horrible hand-writing as a “visual.”
This is the first one, which I shared with Patrons earlier today. Most, if not all, of the future videos will be Patron exclusive, for patrons at $1 and above! I’m going to try keeping them during the break too. I think it will be a good way to keep my thoughts in order.
In community news, my good friend Liz Staley has launched a Kickstarter for her third book! Adrastus is a modern love letter to 70’s and 80’s Giant Robots, with a fantastic heroine coming into her mecha-weilding heritage. I wish Liz all the best and hope for a successful campaign! Please check it out and share it with your friends!
Lastly, thank you again for all your encouragement regarding the upcoming break. I think it’s really important for me to take this time, and both my wellbeing and my story will benefit. You are all amazing people, and I will look forward every day to my return.
