Feast or Famine

Postby Masato » Wed Sep 19, 2018 9:52 pm

Hey all

So the past 2 months have been almost totally dry for work (I'm a freelancer), and I was honestly getting a bit freaked out, thinking about even maybe looking for a regular type job. Wife was all nervous, we were up last night at 3am trying to figure out what to do. I've been freelance for 15 years, we've had ups and downs before but its been particularly dry lately, maybe the worst drought we've seen. She had watched a lot of shit go down in Brasil before she came to Canada and has some deep fears having to go through it all again with her own kids.... We have some strategies to ramp up business, start some new marketing gameplans, even open up a new company etc but of course its all chance

Then just today all of a sudden I get 3 fucking monster job offers all at once. Had to turn 1 down, and the other 2 are way more than I can handle, I'm farming out other artists to put together a team so I can take em both. Its gonna be completely messed up busy till mid-october now, lol

Ups and downs are crazy, I went from legitimately worried about no work to legitimately worried about too much work in a matter of a few hours.

Wife said she prayed hard last night and received a sign that something would happen today, and boy did it ever. I told her to ease up on her prayers lol

Good news but man freelance life is nuts.

Will need lots of long Youtube content to keep my mind occupied for a few weeks, post your best stuff I'll make a lineup

She prayed hard?
People say they all want the truth, but when they are confronted with a truth that disagrees with them, they balk at it as if it were an unwanted zombie apocalypse come to destroy civilization.

- You never thought about trying comic-books?
- I rent this space for advertising

Don't be selfish, preserve this world for the next generations.

I'll never long for what might have been
Regret won't waste my life again
I won't look back I'll fight to remain

I would love to work on comic books but I have no connections or leads in, I bet there is fierce competition and I also hear there is not much pay in it unless you're really famous
