Graph demonstrating the number of writing commissions I receive increases with the amount of non-writing work I have to do.
That’s not how this graph should work. >.<

Typing

Comic. What I think I'm Typing: It was a long and stormy night, but the problem was Henry didn't know what to do next. Versus. What I actually Type (garbled typos and nonsense.) End of comic.

Reading Time

Comic. Panel one. Woman and man sitting on a sofa with smart phones. Woman asks, Are you reading a new book? Man replies, Trying to. Panel two. Woman asks, Who's it by? What genre is it? Panel three. Man appears annoyed. Woman asks, Is it any good? Where'd you hear about it? Have you read anything else by that author? Panel four. Man still appears irritated. Woman watches him in silence. Panel 5. Woman says, So, now's NOT the best time for research questions. Man appears less irritated. Man says, Yeah, not so much. End of comic.
Sometimes I get a little excited. ^__^

Wishing you the best,

Woman says, pretty sure this isn't what they mean. End of comic.
I’m typing this while surrounded by more tools than I can name. So many pointy objects. O_O

Focused (Comic)

Comic. Panel one. Man and woman sit on couch, each holding mobile devices. Woman says, I'm reading the first draft now. Man says, k. Panel two. Man and woman are focused on their devices. Panel three. Man says, we should get a goat. Woman blinks. Panel four. Man and woman return to focusing on their devices. Panel five. Man says, I take your silence as an agreement. So that settles it. We're getting a goat. Woman sighs. End of comic.
