Humans of the Great Shift - Anthony


This is a few minutes late, because I forgot I needed to make it until a few minutes before I needed to post it.  Considering how little I time I had to make it, I don't think putting it up 15 minutes late is too bad.

Aside from that little hiccup, I've managed to keep my posting schedule so far.  I think that's a good sign.  :)

Humans of the Great Shift - Mitch


I had a surprisingly difficult time finding the right image for this.  Sometimes that's the most time-consuming part of making a cap.

I feel really good about this one.  I think I needed to write something I'm proud of today.

Back, writing gods willing, on Monday!

New Schedule

Note: If you don't want to read all my blabber, but still want to know what's up, skip to the bolded bit at the bottom of this post.

Tough talk time.

I don't have another series written to follow Dial H for Heroine.  I'd hoped, when I started writing Dial H in Septemberish, to finish it Octoberish.  Then I would have time to churn out a few more series before I posted the last part of Dial H.  I liked the idea of having that breathing room.  Truth be told, though, I didn't even finish Dial H until yesterday.  I haven't finished, or even started, any other series.

Writing has really been a struggle since late last year.  For a couple of blessed months last year, I had a different body, a healthier body, a body free of the health problems I have now.  I don't think I realized how much returning to my own body last September affected me.  My writing ground to a halt.  I've just been too tired to write.  Too burned out.  That's the main reason I've been so lax in posting recently; my backlog is empty and I've been struggling to write new captions.  Plus... I guess I've been dreading the day when I would have to finally make this post.

At least one of my health problems has gotten quantifiably worse over the last few months, too.  I'm taking medication for it.  Upped my dosage.  I'm seeing my doctor about it tomorrow.  So I'm working on getting better.  But there's only so much I can actively do.

So... series are on hold.  I hope to get back to my series, because I do enjoy writing them, and I have a lot of ideas for series I would still like to write.  First I need the time to write out a new series, though... and more importantly, I need the energy to write it.

I'm also planning to shift to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday posting schedule.  I'm hoping I'll be able to resume a daily schedule someday, but I need to build up by backlog first, which means I need to find the energy to write first.  I haven't really been keeping a daily schedule for the last few months anyway, so this probably won't be a big disruption for you as a reader; I probably won't be posting any less captions than I have been.  In fact, I'm hoping it will be better for you, because at least you'll know when I'm posting.

I'm still planning to write diary captions here and there as well; they won't follow the Monday-Wednesday-Friday schedule, so look for them at random moments as inspiration and energy strike.  I enjoy sharing my experiences with you guys, and I would like to continue to do so.

We'll see, of course, if I can keep to the new schedule.  I'm bad at keeping schedules.  But, you know, that's my intention, at least.

TL;DR summary: Series are on hold for now, and I'm shifting to a Monday-Wednesday-Friday posting schedule.  Diary captions will, as always, be sporadic.

Dial H for Heroine 94


And that concludes Dial H for Heroine.  I don't think I'm done with John and his Heroine Pad, though.  I have ideas and images that I wasn't able to get to; as the series progressed and the plot tightened, I had to set aside some of my ideas.  I'd still like to see those ideas come to life, though, so I may write some one-shot captions showing some of John's further adventures.

I'm proud of this series.  It's the longest series I've written by far, an I'm happy with how it turned out.  Around 10% of the captions I've written for this blog have been for this series, and I've spent about a third of the two years I've had this blog posting it.  Wrapping it up is a big milestone.  I hope you've enjoyed reading it as much as I've enjoyed writing it.

And be sure to come back tomorrow.  I have an important announcement.

Dial H for Heroine 93


This is the next-to-last chapter of Dial H for Heroine.  After all these months, this series is alllllmost over.  Incredibly bittersweet for me at this point; this series has, after all, been running for something like a third of the time I've had this blog.  *sigh*

Dial H for Heroine 92


This is, of course, not the first time that this actress has appeared in this costume in a series on my blog.  Call it a throwback.  :)
