Feeling Better Through Application of Nines...

Well, the response to the Black Cacophony episode was pretty positive. About 70% of the people who responded to the poll were willing to listen to more full episodes of the story, which is great!

Sadly, that other 30% is a pretty big chunk. It means that I can’t expect to do too many more of these, and the rate of 3-4 a year seems to be about it. Still, that’s a step in the right direction… and I’m really not complaining. The audio story wasn’t why people tuned in, and enough people liked it that I get to keep doing ‘em, which is great!

It did send me into a bit of a sad-spiral for a few days, but I sat down and shotgunned 40 episodes of Brooklyn Nine-Nine, which I’ve enjoyed, as well as a few sci-fi movies (“I Am Mother” was okay, but too depressing for my tastes) and a few old episodes of Deep Space Nine. Overall, it’s definitely helped put a positive spin on how I’ve been feeling, which is good. I’ve never agreed with the concept that artists need to be angry and/or depressed to produce good product… and life is too short to spend too much of it miserable.

Also! Only about 40 days until I go on my Japan trip! Excited! Lightly terrified, but excited. Still doesn’t feel quite “real” yet, but it’s approaching the point that I’ll start thinking about it as a thing that is actually happening, as opposed to a nebulous event sometime in the future.

Anyway! Back to writing Novel 5! Hope everyone is doing well!
