As I mentioned in earlier posts, we are in the Start of School here at my day job. It’s easy to think of that in terms of one or two days — kids arrive, kids get set up, life goes on — but in practical terms its a couple of weeks worth of setup, implementation and fine tuning. We’re midway through the fine-tuning aspect of it, and it’s going fantastically, but I’m still running on significantly too little sleep and about three weeks without an actual day off (Labor Day I spent migrating systems no one needed to access because… well, it was Labor Day).
Which brings us to Banter Latte.
I have Corbett-877 at 95%, Interviewing Trey at 90%, and Lovelace 1/2 somewhere below that on the ‘ready to post’ layer. I have two myths sketched out and another project I want to do as a one-off. And I quite honestly have no capacity to do those last few things that need doing to actually post the work. When I’m not working, I’m in a haze. It’s funny to watch. My cat thinks I’m some kind of plush toy.
Wednesday has been very good at making sure I remember to eat.
I’m shooting to have the full run of posts return as of Monday. If I can get up the vim or vigor I’ll put something up this week as well, but I wouldn’t expect the main series stuff before next week. Once we do settle into the routine of the school year, I’ll have the time to start hammering on projects. During smooth times, doing 3,000-5,000 words a day is generally simple, which means two or three weeks will get the buffer refreshed and the system can go back to full automatic. I’m also considering rerunning some classic stuff from my past — things that didn’t appear on Banter Latte to begin with, but deserve a home.
On a side note, and I try to only rarely make mention, we do have a tip jar off to the side and — if you’ve enjoyed the work and are inclined — it would be nice to get a buck or three in it. If not, no worries. There will still be content as the storm settles.
Thanks as always, and enjoy the shrimp!
