A not particularly pleasant update:
You may be wondering where I've been for the last two months. Issue 26 of Curveball was supposed to come out in September, after all, and here it is almost the end of October and it's turning into another round of "will he or won't he" terms of getting everything ready on time. Well I haven't forgotten or abandoned any of you, but the non-digital world has been very demanding of late.
In August the long-term contract I was working ended. I have been looking for work ever since, but apparently I haven't been looking very well because so far nothing's come of it. I had two strong possibilities: one didn't work out, one is still a possibility but I'm waiting to hear. In the meantime I'm not resting on my laurels, but I'm also not making a whole lot of progress.
At some point very soon I'm going to completely run out of money, and I have no idea what will happen if I get there. I'll be frank, trying to plan for that is terrifying. I don't know precisely what will happen next, and I'm not really looking forward to finding out.
