I banged out a week of comics today in a fairly non-stop seven-hour session. The inked buffer is at 61, a new high score, and included in that inking is the strip for June 12, 2007 (making for seven years of Schlock.)
Now I’m too tired to do anything else, and I’m feeling depressed about it.
DEPRESSED. New High Score plus Seven Years = Depressed. This is ridiculous.
I finished all my work for the day (and for tomorrow, truth be told) and I’ve rightfully earned a respite from work. I want to keep going, but I’m too brain-fried and hand-sore to script, color, or do any of the myriad “little” things that need to be done during the week. I should just kick back and relax for the evening, but I can’t. That kind of leisure so early in the week? Why, that’s akin to SLOTH, right there.
And reading the news doesn’t help much. Great. I can now add indignation, anger, and powerlessness to the depression. Unfortunately, their effects stack.
I’m not feeling sorry for myself, mind you. I’m just frustrated that I don’t seem to be wired to enjoy accomplishment. Not today, at any rate.
