Looking back... looking forward

Where did you think you'd be at this point in your life? Where did you hope you'd be?

Married (check) with one or two kids (no) and working in either comics or gaming (kind of check) or an author (not really, yet).

Life never really goes according to plan, I need to find a way to turn what I have accomplished into something more. I've had the opportunities now and then but they've all faltered at one point or another and the world has changed so much just in my lifetime. I was born into a generation that's used to change as a way of life I think, due to the acceleration and rapidity of those changes, but it does tend to mean that there's nothing 'solid' under your feet, nothing you can rely on. That makes forward planning a bit tricky.

I hoped I could make an actual living doing what I love, rather than scraping by. I wouldn't change a thing, but it would be nice for this all to be a more viable economic model of sustaining myself.

Otherwise, by and large, I'm where I wanted to be, doing what I wanted to do.

Go me.
