Yes, again. Remember what I said about needing to stop doing comics with sleepy people cos I always fall asleep while drawing them? It remains true. Actually, I rewrote this page a bit to make Tabitha's "energy engery SUDDEN EXTREME SLEEPINESS" a bit more autobiographical, because it really is one of the reason so many of these pages have been behind schedule. There was once a point when I could start a comic in the late evening, power through my grogginess all night, and manage to get the page finished and online in the morning. I'm not saying that was a good or healthy work schedule, just that I could get away with it since the pages got done. And when I learn I can get away with something, it's VERY difficult for me to unlearn that, even when it's demonstrably no longer true. Case in point, I just can't pull all-nighters the way I did when I was fresh out of college. I hit that "too groggy to work" wall much harder and much SOONER than I did when I was twenty. I know that doesn't seem like an earth-shattering revelation, but apparently I still need to learn it. I keep slipping back into that work cycle of starting a page WAY too late and going WAY too slow because, somewhere in the back of my mind, I still expect to have seven or eight more hours of useful working time, when I'm actually just one or two away from crashing. The end result is half-finished pages like this one. ...I know, that's more than anybody really wanted to know about my creative process, but if you read that Patreon blog post I did (which is open to the public, so even if you're not a patron you can still see it) you know I'm reassessing a lot about how I get things done, so that's just where my head is at right now.

On a SLIGHTLY less wordy note, New Voting Incentive in which I tentatively inch closer to something I've been saying I wanted to do for ages!
