At this stage I go through the stack and pick random pages to work on. I figure that I've done about nineteen pages this way so far this month. After another week, week and a half of this process, I will go through the stack and look for pages that I have not worked on that much. I will then work on those pages. I might do this one more time-going through the stack and working on underworked pages. Then, I will start at the beginning and go through the pages from front to back. I might do one last check to see if a lot of underworked pages still stand out.
If I can work about an hour to an hour-and-a-half on the pages per work day at this point, I'm doing pretty good. I really hate pencil work for reasons I've gone into before, Mainly that involves lots of decision making with the preliminary pencils not looking good at all.
I found it that much harder to work on my music than on the plates. I did only one song. I'm trying to increase the number of days per month that I work on my music. Last month I worked on my music on eleven days. I set a goal of eight days this month. The idea is to set a goal that I know I can achieve. That way I will more readily commit to working, get to my goal, and in the remaining days of the month I can work to exceed last months' total number of days. I hope to work up to a number of days that are comparable to what I put in on my comic books. I got the idea for setting modest goals that fall short of what I've done from Dr. David Burns' self-help book, "Feeling Good." It was from reading that book that I came up with a self-diagnosis of Love Addiction as the cause of my depressive episodes, and thus the cause of my psychotic episodes, so I recommend it.
