And again the server is back online. Let's hope it'll stay like that for longer than just one day...

August 06th 2007

After two days of downtime the server seems to be back up! And speaking of "back up", I'll quickly make a backup before something happens again...

Just to throw out some minor projects news for you to devour, I have started one completely new project which I'll put on the projects list once it has reached a certain state of completion. Another yet unmentioned project has been picked up again and should be more or less finished in about one or two months.

And finally, one of my oldest projects seems to slowly crawl out of its dark corner...

Also, if you haven't done so yet, you should get Tanith Lee's Biting The Sun. It's simply beautiful in every way.

I've ordered the next version of Antaran's Journal and it should arrive in about two weeks. If the book turns out alright those who are interested will be able to order a book in about three weeks.

The price will increase a bit though. I'm thinking about what I could send along the book to justify its price. I won't sell it at a profit, it will cost exactly what it costs me. I don't want to be "accused" of "trying to make money" again - for whatever reasons. If anybody feels the need to support me financially, I've heard there's a paypal button to be found somewhere on this page. But it could just be one of those urban legends.

There also seems to be a new entry for IAD's Making Of. Not anything new really, I just needed to talk about it for a bit.

Largely because of your messages - which I can't thank you enough for - I've found my grip again and I'm slowly climbing back up. There will be a few updates in the next few days, but I don't want to tell you which ones. One of the things that put pressure on me was that I kept telling about project progression and then couldn't find the time and/or motivation to fulfill those promises. Even if you say you don't care, it's more of a personal thing. When I promise certain goals to myself and can't reach them, I have this feeling of failure in my head.

Therefore there won't be a lot of project status news anymore. The only indication of progress will be seen on the projects page through each project's percentage of completion. New projects will only be announced and put on the projects page when they have reached at least, say, 80% of completion. IAD is an exception, as I've already started writing the Making Of, and I will continue to contribute more entries. However, I might hold newly written entries back for a while and then upload a bunch of them at once.

The drawback of holding back project news is that I don't get instant feedback, which in case of positive feedback would make it harder in terms of acquiring motivation. On the other hand, it doesn't raise any levels of expectations on your side, thus the motivation level should be the same - if not higher because the only expectation I have to meet then is the overall quality of my projects that you are accustomed to.

The Radical Slim Shake Drink is also still available and will be updated whenever new projects are announced or released - as usual.

Now as for actual project news, the Halfquake Amen Comic is finished and the remaining twelve comics are going to be released in the next few days.

Stay dead.

No, I'm not done yet. I'm still trying to find myself because I don't know me anymore. The past few weeks were absolutely horrible. I don't know what's going on, but everything I try to create puts an enormous amount of pressure on me. Everything feels empty. I can't go on like this. It will take another while until you will be able to see and hear something from me again.

Until then, I bid you farewell... May the best things happen to you in your life.
