It's been a rough year. Productive, but rough, emotionally. I've been working on multiple projects, some that I felt like starting, some mandatory. For those of you wondering, as usual, YES, Team Fortress School IS one of the projects. But I've been hitting some more inevitable speed-bumps with it lately... getting voice work finalized has been proving to be difficult.
There's a game I've been developing in the meantime for the last few months, and though going well and functioning properly, I've been hitting some writer's blocks with it. It's incredible how much time can pass and you can get literally nothing done, just waiting and waiting and waiting on a good idea, something to move you forward... and it's like, no matter how hard you utilize your spare time to come up with something, it seemingly never comes to you. You have the full capability to move forward, but the idea just isn't there, you don't have anything to work with.
On the positive side, animation in general has been looking very good in my eyes and I'm happy to see how some stuff I've been cooking up lately has been turning out... that being said, knowing that it's already June, I feel like I hit a mid-life animation crisis of some kind... the year's already half-done, and still nothing new really got uploaded lately. Even if I know stuff WILL be published soon, seeing it from the audience's perspective, I definitely understand how it looks like nothing is going on. I really have been trying hard to get these projects done, but life, trouble with individuals out there, work in order to stay alive and have a place to live... there's just so much getting in the way, and even when I have no more obligations for the day and am alone, I get emotionally overwhelmed at times and I just can't seem to get much production taken care of. I really have been trying, and this past week, things have noticeably been getting better, but it's been far from easy. I really am trying, I really do want to have more work published, and I really, REALLY want this to become my career one day, one day soon. It's just been rough.
