So… I’ve been entertaining this plan for a little while now. The plan went like this – hold onto my job until things were looking a little more financially stable, and then take a tentative step into the life of a cartoonist by going part-time, maybe. Baby steps. Work up to doing this thing full time, and see how it goes. Always, always, have a safety net there in case things get rough.
Looks like that plan’s out the window. But you know what? I’m not broken up about it. Hell, how long have I been complaining about not having enough time to dedicate to the good things in life – like friends, and walks in the sunshine, and making more comics. It’s scary, yeah, but we’ll see how this thing goes.
It’s like a wise man once said: You can’t always get what you want, but if you try sometime, you just might find, you get what you need.
Besides, how many times in your life do you get to make an exit like that?
