Going on hiatus...

Taking care of our daughter, supporting my wife while she finishes her medical residency, and, of course, working on my next book, leaves very little time to do anything else. To focus on these tasks, I'm going to take a break from this blog for a while.

Making manga is not just a mental endeavor, but a physical one as well. These days, with the lack of sleep, I'm finding that I don't have enough energy left after I come home from my day job. To remedy that, I've started exercising again (I stopped when Audrey was born). Hopefully I'll get into a routine that I can keep for the long-term.

So the plan now is to finish my math manga book early next year. After that, I'll focus on improving my skills and working on ideas so I can bring them to a publisher in Japan.

I'll be back here, at this blog, to talk about the manga path again...I promise. But for now, I'll be concentrating on getting this career on track. After all, if I don't succeed in becoming a full-time mangaka, there will be no path to talk about.
