I just finished the forty-third page of Richy Vegas Comics', "The Villainess Veronica Ortega, part two." I started the final inks on the drawn and lettered pages at the beginning of August. I'm very excited that I've done so many pages in just two months. I'm looking forward to finishing this book sometime in late November or early December. The book will run seventy-six pages in length plus the cover. I want to spend December outlining the next book and writing four songs for an EP that I want to record next summer.
I might be able to release a third solo record before the Insect Sex Act album ever sees the light of day. I will say no more on that subject. I'm excited about writing the four songs in December. Right now I'm not able to focus on the record or songs in any meaningful way. It takes up too much of my concentration and energy to stick with the book. I will do good to play and write for a time or two in the next month. When I concentrated on "The World's Least Important Singer/ Songwriter" earlier this year, I really could not focus on the book.
Right now the priority is the book. I'm able to scribble notes for songs as they come to me, but not much else. The drawings look good. Right now there's still no real deadline pressure egging me on to bust ass on the book. There won't be any deadline pressure for at least another month. That's why I feel so good about getting so much done these last two months. If I have a good month of October production-wise, there won't be any deadline pressure, to speak of, at all.
After a session like the one this morning, I get real obsessive about productivity. I wish that I could be as obsessive about guitar practice, but there you are.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
