Okay, that was the last day-of-the-week themed post title, I promise. The young lady in the picture is the first result when you GIS “fooferall,” I have no idea who she is or why she appears when you do an image search on that word.
A bit of history on this blog: when I initially started this round of blogging I called the place Infinitefreetime because the joke was I had absolutely no free time at all and therefore it was an insanely dumb idea for me to start blogging again. This was back on Xanga before Xanga killed itself. Then, a month later, of all the people I knew who had started or committed to blogs during whatever month it was, I was just about the only one left standing. Despite the last several months of my life, where I have been unemployed and generally able to do whatever the hell I wanted with my days, the title of the blog was meant to be ironic.
After I get back from OtherJob tomorrow night, I will have gone to work six times in the past six days, for the first time in months. Understand that six-day work weeks have been par for the course for virtually my entire life. This represents a return to normal, not an exception to the rule. This is how my life is supposed to work.
My only real problem, at the moment, is that the 9-5 M-F thing is only going to last about another week. I’m still not entirely sure exactly how much detail I want to reveal about the job, but some bits are going to be unavoidable and “high-end retail” is probably close enough for now. My schedule is about to get a lot more complicated, as the way things work at this place everybody has at least a couple of days where they are there all goddamn day. It’s going to affect my blogging schedule one way or another. I’ve been able to post every day for well over a year by now– I haven’t missed a day since December of 2014. I will be amazed if that record survives for another three weeks. I am categorically not planning on abandoning the blog– it’s too important to my plans for the next several years of my life if not longer than that– but it’s likely that my posting frequency will be changing somewhat or, at the very least, I’m going to have to start pre-scheduling a lot of posts.
Bookwise, I have secured a cover artist for Tales of the Benevolence Archives. I will likely only have one new release this year after initially hoping for two, but I should have that out this fall. I should have a couple of days each week where I’m home and the boy is at school or day care, so I’ll be able to keep working on those days this week. But that’s something else to look forward to. I’m hugely excited about seeing what this artist comes up with. The main reason?
Brazel, Grond and Rhundi will be on the cover of this one.
