A lot of stuff has come together in the last few days.
- As of yesterday, KDP has approved me for a hardcover test. I’m currently uploading and tweaking files for Awesome Moments as a hardcover, which is my preferred format for that book. That is today’s “work”, though I may do other things in tinker mode.
- I’m almost done with the first draft of the 3rd Jump the Shark book.
- My research on ADHD for my kids’ sake has peaked, and I have become resolved to seek treatment because there are several sensible life paths I can take, where only my symptoms stop me. I am not certain, but I am leaning towards ramping up Indie games.. e.g. choosing a game I wish to make, making a fraction of it, selling that, then adding another fraction, and so on.
- The conditions that allowed me to avoid a day job, or other form of gainful employment, are suddenly reaching an end. I have been given basically a year off by a combination of priorities and indecision. But that year is drawing to a close regardless of what I do.
In good news, the concept art for the new Jump book is getting rapidly more iconic.
I am not yet the creator I wish to be, but I am observably improving.
Anyway, once I get the hardcover “working”, my plan is to
A) Try out Thomas Brush’s 2D game toolkit.
B) Sort out my next step.
