Finally getting some work done on the new Bat and Garison stories today. This weekend, I managed to get way ahead on “Burt & the I.L.S.”. That’s a relief because, two months ago, I just couldn’t do BILS for anything.
Thought I ought to let the readers of this blog (if there are any) know that page 11 of Book 6 in the BILS saga has a veiled reference to “First Time: The Legend of Garison Fitch” that fans of that book will get and everyone else will probably read right over without acknowledging that anything out of the ordinary happened. BILS has been fun–for a lot of reasons–but one of them is that I have gotten to play around with time travel conventions in ways that I can’t really do in the Garison stories.
I have long patted myself on the back for being good at prioritizing, but the reality is that I usually didn’t have much to prioritize. Now that I am a husband, a father, a preacher (at a church in the midst of a building program) a hospice chaplain, a hospital chaplain in training, a newspaper columnist, a newspaper cartoonist, and a comic book artist, prioritizing is taking on more and more importance!
