Consequences Chapter 3 has now been posted! It seems to be a yearly tradition at this point that in October, I post something on Halloween.
Truth be told, this was the first month in a long while where I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to produce anything at all. I know that’s silly given I normally produce one work and managed to do two this month with the commission, but it was all thanks to a few long train rides and a few suddenly cancelled plans. I find that as time goes on, I become busier and busier, and worse yet, busier and busier with work that I can’t afford to not do.
No doubt a few cracks have formed in the system as a result. I haven’t been able to keep up as well with these blogs, for instance, and the domain for the .com of my website expired a good few days ago without my noticing. I feel very guilty for both of these slip-ups occurring, and will do my best to be a little more vigilant.
To my complete astonishment, neither of those things appeared to affect viewership. You all still care. I can’t tell you how much that means to me, and I’ll try to dedicate more time to this in the future, though I anticipate November will continue to be a difficult time for me. Nevertheless, the show goes on.
I think it’s normal in life for one to find new obligations – new bills, new responsibilities, new connections. Some of us find careers, or spouses, or children to take care of. Thankfully, I don’t have to worry about the child part yet, and hopefully never will – I don’t imagine I’d make the best parent. I’m too literal and lack the patience for children. I’ve mentioned before that I’ve worked with teenagers, and even then I can be baffled by them at times. Perhaps my desire to write primarily from the teenage mind stems from my wish to understand their goals, or even to communicate with my own teenage self and give him closure. Who knows? I don’t. Welcome to my blogs.
I hope you enjoyed this chapter, and even if it wasn’t for you, I hope you enjoy the next one. Consequences is a difficult beast to write, in many ways, but it’s still a joy, and I hope that joy has spread to you, the reader. I’ll (hopefully) talk to you all next week.

even to communicate with my own teenage self and give him closure.
Wow that hit deep
