557 – Special Delivery!

The holidays have come and gone and life is getting back to normal, or as normal as my life ever gets, at any rate.  We’re in the grips of 2016 now and as longtime readers know, 2015 really put me through the wringer. I’m glad to see its backside. Like everyone else I know, I’ve made some New Year’s Resolutions:

  1. I want to get my posting frequency up to twice a week. When I started, I was posting comic strips three times a week, but that was before my transition to fully digital production and a format change.
  2. I am going to run a 5K for the first time in my life. November 6, 2016 is the day of the Santa Clarita Marathon and 5K, so that gives me plenty of time to train and drop a significant amount of weight. I’ve been looking into a few “Couch_2_5K” programs, because the only time I have ever run for exercise was mandatory “cross-country” long-distance running in high school, which was quite a few decades ago and which I hated. This time, though, I’m doing it because I want to, which will hopefully make all the difference.
  3. Work will begin this month on the third MeatShield book, The Tomb of Errors. I hope to have it ready for purchase by June 1st.
  4. I am going to be developing merchandise for MeatShield besides the books, as I realize that not everyone wants to buy a book. I’ve made noises about this before, but this year it will truly begin in earnest.

Have any of you made New Year’s Resolutions this year?  Have you instead resolved not to make resolutions (which is a resolution in itself)?

Take care, and Happy New Year,
