Okay, I’ll admit it. I think I bit off a bit more than I could chew.
This month wasn’t a really good month for me. To be more specific, it hasn’t been a very good season. But it has nothing to do with the shows — seriously, this is a VERY good season. Heck, I can’t remember for the life of me a Spring season that actually did this good for the past few years. What’s been bumming me out this season is the fact that NONE of my articles have been published on Crunchyroll due to staff issues. Complicating things further are my RL duties, which included a couple trips abroad for conventions, etc.
I know I wanted to be a writer on the side, but the demands were a little too much for the amount of content I set myself out to achieve — Weekly anime in review (totaling to almost 10 different shows), two regular shows on a weekly review basis, one or two shows for a mid-season review, a pre-season preview, a mid-season status report (which didn’t materialize), and an upcoming end-season final impression.
Seriously, writers out there — how the hell do you do it?
But I don’t want to give up. I guess I forgot that this isn’t a job. It’s a hobby. As much as I want to put down my thoughts on shows, I got too caught up in the necessity of bringing out as much content in a timely fashion. The result was that it kinda backfired — I burned myself out and ended up not caring.
But now I do care and I want to do myself a favor and make this fun for me, as well. So yeah, let’s try this one more time. I’ll dumb down my expectations and just gun for a weekly snapshot with some random thoughts whenever I feel like it. Yeah, that sounds reasonable.
