Horridtacular as this year's been, two good things came out of it creatively. I finished Fall Of The Hammer, was damn proud of it, and got it out into your hot little hands (all six of you), and I got the wheel grinding on Unmortal. That wheel continues to grind, such that if I keep things up I should have a rough first draft by [counts on fingers] uh, February? March? Of 2021, that is. Let's say March just to be on the safe side.
What comes after that breaks down like so:
One more thing I'm mulling in '21 is a change-up for how I handle the balance between creating new stuff and talking about things I like. Both are important to me and each feeds into the other. I've tentatively explored a strategy where the first week of the month, or something like that, is devoted to doing critical/analytical/evangelical work (analyzing things, or pointing at things people don't know about and saying look at this great thing here, you'll really like it). Doing all those things for the month in the course of a few days' burst might help sustain the momentum to knock several such projects out of the way in one go. At the very least it might help me chisel away faster at that pile of stuff that never gets read fast enough.
