Boy, do I really want to talk about this, but at the same time I know that I really shouldn’t talk about it!!! 😮
It’s a common adage amongst creative type people that it’s best not to talk publicly about a new project that you’re working on until you’re actually done and ready to unveil it to all of your adoring fans. The reasons are plentiful – you don’t want to waste your promotional enthusiasm now before there’s actually anything to buy, you don’t want your fans to both ramp up and subsequently get over an idea before there’s anything of substance for them to enjoy, and hell – for all you know, it might not even end up getting done!
That’ll sure leave you feeling red in the face, when somebody asks you two years later, “Hey, what ever happened to that Super Awesome Thing-a-ma-jig that you were working on?! I was really looking forward to giving you boatloads of my hard-earned moolah for that!”
That said, at the same time it’s really hard to resist blabbing about a new project that you’re excited about because, well, you’re excited about it and it’s big enough to be worth your time, so why not?!
So anyways, I’m going to do my best not to spill the beans on this new one that I’m undertaking, except for these few tiny morsels that I just have to get out of my system before it bursts … creatively speaking, of course! This new thing that I’m working on is something that I’ve never done before, although I’m sure there was a point where the concept crossed my mind in the past. But it’s definitely a first, and it’s going to be very colorful, and the current goal is to have everything done by the end of the summer.
Also, it’s a collaborative effort that I’m doing with my sister, who you may remember from the comic’s fame.
But that’s it – no more chatter until it’s done!
Whew – believe it or not, I actually do feel a lot better now. 🙄 It actually has been a whole lot of fun with even the little bit that we’ve completed so far, and I hope that five months from now you all find it rather enjoyable to, well, enjoy, too!
